Kingston releases its first USB 3.0 flash drive

Kingston on Tuesday unveiled its first USB 3.0 thumb drive, the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0. The drive is available in three capacities, at 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, and provides much faster transfer speeds than USB 2.0. Practical estimates give it a write speed of 60MBps and a read speed of 80MBps.

To ensure backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 drives, a Y cable is included with each Ultimate 3.0 thumb drive. Kingston's tests have shown that a 3.9GB movie could be copied to the drive in 1 minute and 13 seconds. The 16GB Ultimate 3.0 USB drive will cost around $89, the 32GB version $138 and the 64GB model $270.
