Kingston Road Map for USB 3.0
The Intel based standard for USB 3.0 was announced nearly 2 years ago and since then, products have slowly trickled in to the market place. Of course there is a cycle to progress…you can’t get peripherals until you have controllers [main stream now] and once you get controllers you expand out to peripherals. That being said, Kingston, one of the largest memory manufacturers on earth, has launched a fairly detailed road map for USB 3.0 products.
Kingston was amongst the first to announce USB 3.0 flash drives into retail under the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 drive and HyperX MAX 3.0 external USB hard drive – both launched earlier in 2010. And now, as the first product on their roadmap for the year, have introduced the DataTraveler HyperX 3.0, which will serve as their flagship model and be part of the HyperXperience product line, a family of high-performance Kingston Flash products that will include SSDs, USBs and flash memory cards.
Kingston made the announcement at CES but doesn’t expect to release the less expesnive USB 3.0 flash drives until Q2, 2011 under the DataTraveller DTU30 brand and will include capacities ranging from 16GB to 64GB.
