Kingston ships world's largest-capacity USB

11 Jan 2013

Kingston has unveiled the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive, becoming the world’s largest-capacity USB 3.0 Flash drive.

Also set to be available in a 1TB capacity later in Q1, the memory provider says the device is shipping now in 512GB capacity, representing the fastest USB 3.0 Flash drive in the Kingston family.

With speeds of up to 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write, the product has also achieved SuperSpeed USB 3.0 certification.

“Our new DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 allows users to store their entire digital world on a portable USB 3.0 Flash drive,” says Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston.

“The large capacity and fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds allow users to save time as they can access, edit and transfer applications or files such as HD movies directly from the drive without any performance lag.”

Kingston says the USB is compliant with next-generation USB 3.0 specifications and is optimised for newer PCs with USB 3.0 ports.

The casing is made of zinc alloy metal for superior quality, shock resistance and high-end design, becoming backwards compatible with USB 2.0 for data transfers.

Kingston says the drive is backed by a five-year warranty and free technical support.
