Kingston today announced the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive. DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 is the world’s largest-capacity USB 3.0 Flash drive as it will be available in a 1TB capacity later in Q1 (DTHX30/1TB). It is shipping now in 512GB capacity (DTHX30/512GB). DT HyperX Predator 3.0 is the fastest USB 3.0 Flash drive in the Kingston family, with speeds of up to 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write. It has also achieved SuperSpeed USB 3.0 certification.
Our new DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 allows users to store their entire digital world on a portable USB 3.0 Flash drive,” said Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, Kingston. “The large capacity and fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds allow users to save time as they can access, edit and transfer applications or files such as HD movies directly from the drive without any performance lag.”
Despite its massive storage, Kingston was able to retain a modest size with Predator. The 64GB DT HyperX came in at 2.95″ x 0.92″ x 0.63″. By comparison, the Predator is a little shorter but also a bit thicker on the sides, at 2.83″ x 1.06″ x 0.83″.
