Patriot Memory Announces Supersonic USB 3.0 Flash Drive Series

Patriot Memory, a global pioneer in high-performance memory, NAND flash, storage and enthusiast computer products, today announces the Supersonic USB 3.0 flash drive series with a native single-chip USB 3.0 controller. The Patriot Supersonic series breaks away from typical USB 3.0 flash drive and delivers blazing-fast performance with its Quad-Channel technology in a miniature ultra-light form factor.

The Patriot Supersonic series eliminates performance bottlenecks introduced when using a separate USB 3.0 bridge chip by integrating a native USB 3.0 flash memory controller. This results in a smaller footprint and higher performance than bridge based solutions - see chart below.

"Patriot is one of the first companies to integrate a native single-chip USB 3.0 flash memory controller. By pairing the controller with our Quad-Channel technology, we're able to maximize performance with the Supersonic series," says Les Henry, Patriot Memory's Vice President of Engineering. "We are able to shrink the physical size of the USB 3.0 flash drives for even greater portability."

An aluminium housing makes the Supersonic series ultra-lightweight, portable and stylish. The housing delivers extreme durability with shock resistance up to 15Gs to ensure safe transportation of your data. Expect the Patriot 32GB and 64GB Supersonic USB 3.0 flash drives to be available early Q1 2011.

Nice speed on these, I'm glad to see more fast but not ssd fast sticks coming out as really for most uses 80mb/s+ should be good enough, i will be interested to see some prices of the 32gb one when they come out.

Why does it seem like Patriot is the only manufacturer concentrating on USB 3.0 drives?
