Transcend stick 2TB of storage on USB drive

Written by Fudzilla staff


Finger long, wafer thin, magic apparently
Memory maker Transcend and research institute ITRI showed off a very impressive USB 3.0 flash drive in Taiwan over the weekend.

The drive is rather thin and it is a tad longer than run of the mill USB sticks, but engineers have somehow managed to stick 2TB of storage on this tiny form factor. The drive will apparently be available in 16GB to 2TB capacities.

However, if you were thinking about popping to the shop around the corner and getting one, you will have to wait. The drive is not available because the USB 3.0 standard hasn’t been officially set yet, so ITRI and Transcend will wait a bit before they actually ship it.

As for the price, Transcend aren’t saying anything. Don’t expect it to come cheap though.

"USB 3.0 standard hasn’t been officially set yet"

When was that published? Are we using USB 3.0 draft/non-standard now?

The engineers at Transcend needs to stop licking those toads.

"It could be 2 TB with this kind of technology" ... in 2020.

Agreed. If you look at the video linked in the THG piece, they say 2 TB is the potential, not what they have ready.

Amazing if true, but I see it being a "USB Boat" rather than a USB Stick.
