    At the ongoing CeBIT event, Patriot Memory showed off its very latest, which includes the WildFire series of SATA 6 Gb/s SSDs, and its latest USB flash drive, the SuperSonic Magnum. As the name suggests, it's both fast and large (capacious). Making use of the USB 3.0 interface, SuperSonic Magnum can rip through file transfers at speeds of up to 200 MB/s (read) and 110 MB/s (write), while holding 128 GB of data. The drive isn't too big (in terms of physical dimensions), by USB 3.0 flash drives' standards. Patriot didn't give out pricing/availability information.

    I don't think anyone would want to buy someone else's testicles.

    I know 1 good use for this monster. If you have less than 4GB of RAM, you can use this in Vista or W7 as a replacement for RAM (or virtual RAM)...or something.

    Readyboost or pagefile.
    Maybe you can even load games onto the drive and play them from a thumb drive. Worth looking into for mobile gaming.

    Nice to see speed ratings on the product. Very nice. Should make transferring movies and games a lot quicker.

    I will be so glad when these come down to a reasonable price.
