Super Talent is readying a new USB 3.0 flash drive, the RC8. This is essentially a SandForce-driven SSD on a stick. It uses a SF-1222 controller, coupled with 25 nm MLC NAND flash memory over 8-channels. It is available in capacities of 25 GB, 50 GB, and 100 GB. When plugged into a USB 3.0 port, the drive can offer read and write speeds of over 200 MB/s. It is backwards-compatible with USB 2.0, where its transfer rates are restricted to around 40 MB/s. Expect the 50 GB variant to be priced around US $110.

Now we're talking, shame they couldn't do a slightly nicer design, but this is the kind of performance I've been waiting for.

Beautiful concept.

Alternatives:
USB3.0 ~ sataIII enclosure USD$13~18 + decent 50gb SSD and what do you get for the same USD$110 price = full USB3.0 speeds of the SSD.

Or ADATA AN002-64G-CBK for USD$79, USB3 SATAII, Same speeds.

This is newegg prices so not the best deals around.

All in the same form factor as this USB flash drive? :confused:
