Available in 16GB and 32GB capacities, this new drive supports USB 3.0 speeds of up to 125MB/second. Sustained transfer rates seem quite lower than the quoted maximum, however. Super Talent says the drive can copy a 600MB video in "only a mere 12 seconds." That works out to 50MB/s but the company expects to improve this performance further in coming weeks by applying their advanced driver technology.
The USB 3.0 Express Drive is backward compatible with USB 2.0/1.1 ports, although naturally transfer rates will be restricted by the 2.0/1.1 standard's limit. The new drives are slated to become available next month from Super Talent resellers worldwide. Unfortunately, prices have not been mentioned as of yet.
