Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced their USB 3.0 RAIDDrive is now even faster. When we introduced the USB 3.0 RAIDDrive, we knew that we had reached the limit of the USB 3.0 host controllers currently available. Now that 2nd generation USB 3.0 host controllers are beginning to emerge, this drive is able to show its true performance. Completely unchanged since its debut in January 2010, this drive now posts scores over 370 MB/s; a full 55 MB/s faster.

"This product yet again underscores Super Talent's continued leadership in the USB 3.0 storage market. We now have five USB 3.0 flash drives: from the very fastest, RAIDDrive, to the ultra-affordable, Express DUO", said Super Talent COO, C.H. Lee.



This drive was benchmarked using the new Fresco Logic FL-1009B, the fastest USB 3.0 solution we have tested to date.

All our USB 3.0 drives are fully backward compatible with USB 2.0 ports, at USB 2.0 speeds. Both our USB 3.0 RAIDDrive and USB 3.0 Express DUO drive use SuperTalent patented technology and are protected under US Patent #7457897.

WOW: that's really fast!

Excuse my noobness, and i've been wondering the same about SSDs that have RAID 0 built in, but how reliable are these? I mean: isn't RAID 0 the fastest but also the worst kind of RAID, reliability wise? Isn't one such device more prone to failures?

I think it's not so much that because it's raid 0 it's more likely to fail it's just that with two drives if either one failed all the data on the other one is worthless... I'm not really sure how to put it :laugh:I guess kind of like having twice the hardware doing the work giving much more speed it also means there is twice as many parts that could fail?

I'm pretty impressed by the extra speed just from a better controller, i thought it was the drive that was the limiting factor not the controller.

Where can one purchase a 2nd gen FL1009 based card?

Benchmark means NOTHING, unless can purchase the 2nd generation FL1009 based card.
I need two. One for PCI-e (x1 or x4???). One for ExpressCard (1.0 or 2.0 needed).
Please respond quickly.
Need where to purchase make/models of FL1009 based cards.
Thank you!
