CES 2013: Kingston Unveils 1TB USB 3.0 Flash Drive

Kingston announces the largest Flash drive on the market

Kingston has recently announced at the 2013 CES in Las Vegas that its Flash drive product lineup received a new member offering no less than 1TB of storage.

Yes, you’ve heard it right, 1TB of storage on a simple Flash drive with USB 3.0 support. The DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 will go on sale in the first quarter of 2013, Kingston said in a press release.

The device has already been certified for the SuperSpeed 3.0 standard, so it supports transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps. If we are to trust Kingston’s data, on the other hand, the maximum read speed is 240 MB/s, while the writing speed reaches 160 MB/s.

Pricing is yet to be disclosed, but it’s very likely to be a lot more expensive than the 512 GB version of the Flash drive that’s already on sale for a shocking $1,750 (€1,330).
