Featuring a 4-channel memory controller with interleaving support, blistering fast data transfer speeds of 120MB/s or more are within reach
I am confused, 2010 we had decent usb 3.0 stick / flash speeds now we have this speeds what is going on ?
How can 120MB/s be super speeds or is the VIA guys out of touch with the rest of the USB sticks performance or stuck in the 80's ?

It is almost as bad as a USA 32MPG car versus a UK 78MPG and saying it is the same.

The Key is Single Chip

Most of the high-performance USB 3.0 Flash drives you see are actually 2-chip solutions, consisting of a NAND to SATA Controller, and a SATA to USB 3.0 Bridge. The NAND to SATA Controller AKA SSD controller, is relatively complex, high-performance, and expensive.

The VIA Labs offering is different because it offers good performance while using just one chip.
