Corsair has launched 128GB Flash Voyager GT pen drive. Corsair claims that this is the fastest 128GB USB flash drive and is able to achieve read speeds of up to 32MB/sec and write speeds of up to 25.6MB/sec. This USB drive is based on dual-controller architecture to achieve single -level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory performance levels using less expensive and higher-density multilevel cell (MLC) NAND flash.
Corsair says that the only factor limiting the speed of this USB drive is the speed of the USB 2.0 bus. “High performance is a key requirement for super-high-capacity flash drives such as the 128GB Voyager GT, simply because it is able to store such a large volume of data. The 128GB Voyager GT is nearly twice as fast as other high-capacity flash drives, which means less time waiting for your music, video or office files to copy to and from the drive,” said John Beekley, Vice President of applications at Corsair to Computer World.
The 128GB Flash Voyager GT is protected from accidental drop and damage by water resistant rubber. Backed up with a 10 year warranty this USB drive is available at price of about $399 (Rs. 19,200 approx).
