SuperBiiz to offer SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express Drive
SuperBiiz is more than ready to offer the SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express Drive for folks who want a USB 3.0 drive that will not break the bank. Of course, it still remains to be seen when will the USB 3.0 standard actually pick up and become a mainstream feature for the masses, as the adoption rate isn’t exactly that impressive at the moment. We’re pretty sure though that as time passes, more and more motherboard manufacturers will throw in USB 3.0 connectivity to keep up with the times, and this alone will help USB 3.0 devices proliferate the market. SuperBiiz is proud to participate in this exercise, who hopes that the USB 3.0 standard will further prompt flash manufactures to create new high performance architectures which are capable of outperforming even the fastest USB 2.0 devices on the market. The USB 3.0 Express drive will come in 16GB and 32GB capacities, and for folks who wonder whether it will play nice with older machines, the USB 3.0 Express Drive is fully backward compatible to USB 2.0 connectors.
When connected to a USB 3.0 port, the new Express drive is capable of supassing 125MB/s speeds. Needless to say, that figure drops dramatically when attached to a USB 2.0 port due to the limitations of USB 2.0 standards, but even so it doesn’t perform like a slouch, being far faster than any other drive in its category, maxing out the bus with speeds up to 43MB/s. Basically, you are looking at a “future proof” product. You are able to make full use of the product as a USB 2.0 flash drive and take advantage of its best in class performance today, while placing you in good stead for tomorrow’s technology as USB 3.0 standard starts to make its way across a variety of machines.
The 16GB and 32GB SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express Drive will retail for $69 and $119, respectively. Any takers?
