Kingston ships DT Ultimate 3.0 USB 3.0 drive

Memory maker Kingston this week announced the release of its fastest thumb drive, with the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Generation 2. The USB 3.0 drive can write at up to 70MBps and read as fast as 100MBps when inserted into a USB 3.0 port. It remains backwards compatible with USB 2.0, though speeds on the slower bus are a much slower 30MBps whether reading or writing.

Available capacities will include 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions. The smallest version retails at $77, the middle variant at $116 and the 64GB model at $213.
