RunCore Intros MoonDrive High-Performance USB 3.0 Flash Drive

RunCore SSD released a new series of flash drives that make use of the fast new USB 3.0 interface, and the kind of internals to truly take advantage of it. It uses single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash (higher performance and rewrite endurance compared to MLC), and delivers transfer rates of 164 MB/s reads and 150 MB/s writes (about as fast as a 10k RPM hard drive, but a whole lot more responsive). Called the RunCore MoonDrive, this stick uses a traditional detachable cap design. The company didn't give out pricing or availability information, or even the capacities the new drive will be available in.

I got a USB 3.0 stick I'm developing... 200 Read/Write. The launch will be in the future, with GBs of capacity and will cost money.

Ha, my USB 3 stick is better... Companies have to learn to give out info, else we'll just get frustrated and not care for the product.

It does look like a great USB stick, but my bet is that it will be overpriced
