    Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the availability of USB 3.0 versions of their award-winning Flash Voyager GT, Flash Voyager, and Flash Survivor product lines.

    Flash Voyager GT USB 3.0: Superior Speed and Renowned Flash Voyager Durability
    The premium performance Flash Voyager GT USB 3.0 provides data transfer rates of up to four times the speed of USB 2.0 drives, and even two times the speed of standard USB 3.0 flash drives — the 64GB model has a maximum read speed of 135 MB/sec and a maximum write speed of 83 MB/sec. Fully backward compatible with USB 2.0, it's also one of the fastest USB 2.0 flash drives on the market. The tough all-rubber housing is water-resistant, and the rounded edge design makes it an ideal choice for busy professionals and PC enthusiasts who need to quickly and safely transport important data.

    The New Flash Voyager USB 3.0: Sleek, Ergonomic New Design
    The ergonomics of the Flash Voyager USB 3.0 get even better with a redesigned body style. With a length of just 73mm (vs. 100mm for the previous version) and a width of 22mm (vs. 26mm), the new design is sleeker and more comfortable to use than ever. Wrapped in the same rubber housing as previous Flash Voyager models, these new drives provide the same durability and data protection the Flash Voyager line is known for.

    Flash Survivor USB 3.0: High-Speed, Adventure-Proof Data Transport
    Flash Survivor USB 3.0 utilizes the same proven design of previous Survivor models, with the added boost of USB 3.0 speed. The anodized aircraft-grade aluminum housing is waterproof to 200 meters, and its solid-state electronics are shock and vibration-resistant providing incredibly rugged protection for your important data.

    Universal Compatibility
    All three new families support the new USB 3.0 standard and are also compatible with USB 2.0. They work directly with Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux without the need for special drivers or software installation.

    "Our new lines of USB 3.0 flash drives offer great choices for performance enthusiasts and on-the-go professionals." said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. "The Flash Survivor and Flash Voyager families are known for their ruggedness, reliability, and superior ergonomics, and USB 3.0 speed makes them even better."

    The standard 16-128gb I would assume, it mentions a 64gb model, in the press release, also the company talking about a 2TB model was simply saying it's possible, but the technology doesn't exist to make it happen yet and if it did, it would cost thousands and be the size of a 3.5" hard drive.
