Super Talent Certifies RC4 Flash Drive for Windows To Go

Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, announces its USB 3.0 Express RC4 has been certified for usage with Windows To Go, a new feature of Microsoft's Windows 8 Enterprise edition. The RC4 is SuperTalent's second drive to be certified to date. Windows To Go enables enterprises to provision a full corporate image on an external USB drive which users can boot and operate from almost any PC. SuperTalent plans to continue to work with firms to unveil its "hardware secure" version in the near future.

Certified through the Windows 8 Hardware certification kit, Super Talent's RC4 is one of the world's top USB 3.0 drives with SSD technology; it provides high random read/write speed capabilities and reports itself as fixed media. Super Talent's RC4 meets and surpasses many of the performance requirements of Windows To Go certified drives.

"We are pleased to announce SuperTalent's second Windows To Go certified drive, the RC4. We are committed to providing our customers with a rich, consistent, and personalized Windows 8 experience even when they run Windows 8 from a USB drive. Super Talent continues to offer drives specifically optimized for Windows To Go to help us fulfill this vision" - Stella Chernyak; Senior Enterprise, Microsoft.

The integration of SSD technology enables the RC4 to deliver exceptional real world performance with outstanding reliability. Using the SSD firmware, the RC4 is over-provisioned at an enterprise level of 10 percent. This change significantly elevates the drive's performance and increases the product's longevity and reliability.

The RC4 includes four channels of NAND flash with a high performance, low power consuming—JMicron SSD/bridge controller. Above this, it is the enterprise level provisioning that allows for incredible 4K random sequential read/write scores—making the RC4 ideal for loading applications. With STT's drive it is just as quick and easy to run a program on the RC4 as it would be to run it on your own SSD.

"We are pleased to announce the certification of our second USB 3.0 drive with Windows To Go. Microsoft Corp. is a valued partner of SuperTalent Technology. Our R&D team has been devoted to a successful launch for both partners." – Abraham Ma, CEO, Super Talent Technology.

I wonder if the mbtf is better than other drives. You could have a slow usb 3.0 drive and it would be as fast as hdd but read and writes are the killer.

Normal USB3.0 flash drives have same or better performance...just saying.
They do? Go take a look at the USB 3.0 flash drives on Newegg and the good majority of them have about half of those speeds. Hell, the one I just bought recently is rated for like 80/40. Even the ones that have as fast or faster read speeds, rarely have a write speed that fast.

So it's essentially just a liveCD on a USB stick?

I don't know about Newegg, why do you assume everyone lives in States or whatever??!
Here you can find something like Kingston DataTraveler HyperX, Corsair Voyager GT, or PATRIOT Supersonic Magnum which are faster than this. Search the web if you don't believe...
