CES 2013 Unfolds Kingston’s Next Big Move in the Flash Memory Market

Kingston revealed its new 1TB USB 3.0 flash drive at CES 2013, a move that is going to drive the future of flash memory market and external HDDs. The world’s first 1 TB USB stick is named ‘DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0’. So now you have a way to keep all your files in one place and carry them along when need be.

The new flash drive features next-generation USB 3.0 specifications and promises read/write speeds no less than 240MB/s and 160MB/s. With this much speed, you can easily edit a full HD movie or transfer a large video file from your drive within minutes or even less. DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 is a perfect match for those who need to travel very often with their entire data.

The device can be used with a USB 2.0 port and is resilient against all kinds of physical damage. It offers a five-year warranty and free technical support. A major concern that may keep you from going with this could be the cost. The 512 GB variant of this drive is commercially available now at $1,750. The 1 TB version is expected to launch in Q1 2013 and will probably be double the price of smaller USB.
