Corsair Flash Voyager GTR USB drive offers 128GB

Posted on Tuesday, February 02 2010 @ 20:18:12 CET by


Corsair introduced the 128GB Flash Voyager GTR flash drive, this new storage device offers massive storage capacity but unfortunately it doesn't support the new USB 3.0 standard. Support for this standard would really be welcome with flash drives this large, as with a maximum read speed of 34MB/s and maximum write speed of 28MB/s it's going to take quite a while to fill this flash drive.
Like the Voyager GT before it, Corsair's 128GB GTR isn't small when compared to other, lesser pen drives, but it does boast speeds that border on the limits of what USB 2.0 can achieve. What we're looking at here are maximum read and write speeds of 34MB/s and 28MB/s, respectively. That's comfortably quicker than the 32MB/s and 25.6MB/s achieved by the existing Voyager GT, which will most likely be pensioned off.

Corsair's latest ultra-large-capacity stick makes use of a quad-channel design through dual controllers, and although its a little chunky, it's clearly a tad smaller than the Voyager GT and far more portable than, say, a 128GB external hard drive. Though, the latter, equipped with eSATA is guaranteed to offer far better speeds if you're willing to carry it around.
