Super Talent has introduced the company's first USB 3.0 flash drives, the product is named RAIDDrive USB 3.0 and you can get it in capacities of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. It's fully backward compatible with USB 2.0 and offer up to ten times faster performance if you have a system equipped with USB 3.0.
The specifications reveal the USB 3.0 RAIDDrive can achieve transfer speeds of up to 320MB/s when using a separate UAS Protocol driver with a USB 3.0 drive, and 200MB/s in regular USB 3.0 mode.
The USB 3.0 RAIDDrive uses patented "multiple pairs of differential serial data lines technology" for optimal NAND flash performance. "This product underscores Super Talent's continued leadership in USB drives." said Super Talent COO, C.H. Lee. "We've developed the world's first mobile USB 3.0 flash drive. It delivers phenomenal performance and it incorporates our own patented technology".

Using a separate UAS Protocol driver with a USB 3.0 port this SuperSpeed drive can reach up to 320MB/sec transfer speeds.
