New SuperTalent USB 3.0 Flash Drives Offer Outstanding USB 2.0 Performance

Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced a new discovery; our latest flash drives, designed for USB 3.0, also offer measurable performance improvements as USB 2.0 drives.

The majority of performance USB 2.0 flash drives utilize dual-channel architectures. Our USB 3.0 flash drives are based on quad-channel designs and beyond. This architectural difference enables SuperTalent USB 3.0 drives to achieve a measurable performance increase even on the USB 2.0 bus.

"The multi-channel architectures we've integrated into our USB 3.0 drives enables enhanced performance even when utilized with a USB 2.0 port. Customers looking for performance flash drives now have a 'future proof' alternative. SuperTalent USB 3.0 flash drives not only provide the fastest USB 3.0 flash scores but also the best performance we have seen from the USB 2.0 port as well. It's a win/win for our customers" said Super Talent COO, C.H. Lee.

Exactly what I have been wondering. That settles it, I don't yet have USB 3.0 on any of my systems, but I am buying a USB 3.0 flash drive anyway asap, just because they show significant benefits, even in 2.0 ports.

And dammit, Newegg still doesn't have any USB 3.0 flash drives listed. I have a $50 gift certificate I can use on one. They need to get on the ball here.

I was just thinking how great this would be to put an O/S on for a nice quick install. I guess the question I have is.. (It may be n00bish) Would my onboard NEC USB 3.0 controller work at USB 3.0 speeds outside of the O/S without any drivers installed?

My usb external enclosures do around 40MB/s. Those are much more bulky than a nice tiny flash drive like this tho.

It's the boost in write speeds I am most interested in tho. I hate how slow my current thumb drives are in writing.

Enough of these overly large and expensive usb "sticks". I need some usb 3.0 card readers.

i recall a news article about a new 'codec' for lack of a better word, which was claimed to work on USB 2.0 and 3.0, for a greater boost in speed (less wasted traffic)

My guess, the controller in this flash drive supports that new 'codec' and therefore gets uber speeds on 2.0 as well as 3.0

Nice and fast, but way too bulky for a flash drive. It's like the width of 3 flash drives side by side. Might as well carry around a portable hard drive.
