Cosair to launch new 128GB USB flash drive

Really fast Flash Voyager GT

Sources close to the company have whispered to us that Corsair is working on a new 128GB USB flash drive, one that is worthy of bearing the GT label. The new Flash Voyager GT is based on MLC flash memory and uses some sort of flash controller to achieve impressive transfer speeds of over 30MB/s for read and around 28MB/s for write.

After a quick look at Google we discovered that the guys from Hardwareluxx.de had a brief chance to put one to the test and confirm such high transfer speeds. The only drawback is that this drive is a bit big, and measures 102x39x18mm, but we guess that is the price to pay if you want such high transfer speeds.

The new Flash Voyager GT 128GB still has the rubber case which means that it will be shock, dust and water proof. It will have a 10-year warranty, and according to what we managed to find out, it should be officially announced pretty soon.

The price follows the dimensions of the drive and according to what we have heard it should retail at around €350. If you think that this price is high, bear in mind that Kingston's 256GB DataTraveler was announced with a €775 price tag.

You can find some tests here.
