Corsair has announced a new high-performance entry in their library of USB drives, the Flash Voyager GT
. The California-based memory giant is offering an impressive feature set for their new MLC-based drive. Available in 16GB capacities, the Flash Voyager GT is boastful of up to three and four times the transfer speeds of a typical USB flash drive, according to Corsair release notes (no hard numbers came on the PR).
Designed to withstand the elements, the Voyager series is enclosed in Corsairís proprietary rubber housing. This casing has enabled the drive to resist third party torture tests, including being laundered, baked, frozen, boiled, dropped and even run over by an SUV, all the while remaining in working condition. As with most drives of this nature, it is Plug and Play with most operating systems and backwards compatible with USB 1.1.
