Corsair unveils 128GB Flash Voyager GT
Remember the good old days where USB flash drives came in capacities of Megabytes (MBs)? Well, those days are long gone and have been replaced by Gigabytes (GBs), and we’ve seen the number jump from 1GB to 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and even 64GB. It does make me wonder just how hard finding stuff on it will become in the long run with something so huge to sift through. Well, Corsair has clearly upped the ante yet another time by releasing their latest USB flash drive known as the 128GB Flash Voyager GT, making it the fastest high capacity 128GB USB flash drive in the world at the same time. This new Flash Voyager GT works differently since it is based upon a revolutionary design which relies on a unique dual-controller architecture in order to achieve SLC-levels of performance using MLC NAND flash memory. According to Corsair, the 128GB Flash Voyager GT can hit read speeds of up to 32MB/sec and write speeds of up to 25.6MB/sec, where the bottleneck has been pointed at the speed of the USB 2.0 bus and operating system overhead.
The 128GB Flash Voyager GT will come with a durable and water-resistant rubber housing that adds extra protection to the drive against accidental damage, while the racing-red ‘GT’ styling continues to be the trademark of Corsair’s ultra high-performance products.
If you’re interested in picking up the 128GB Flash Voyager GT, it is readily available from Corsair’s authorized distributors and resellers worldwide, and each purchase will actually come with a 10-year limited warranty for added peace of mind. Have you ever gave a thought and wonder just how large USB flash drives can get in 10 years’ time? We’re betting it will be in the Terabytes (TB), just in case you’re a gambling person.
