Corsair Flash Voyager GT 128GB
Corsair says the performance of the drive is limited by the USB 2.0 interface

Corsair is a big name in the enthusiast gaming and computer circle. The company makes some of the most popular RAM for computers along with a full assortment of flash drives and SSDs. Corsair has announced its latest flash drive today called the 128GB Voyager GT.

Corsair claims that the performance of the drive is only limited by the speed of the USB 2.0 bus. The drive is hailed as the world's fastest 128GB USB flash drive. The 128GB GT uses a dual-controller architecture to provide SLC level performance with MLC NAND flash memory.

“High performance is a key requirement for super-high capacity flash drives, such as the 128GB Voyager GT, simply because it is able to store such a large volume of data,” said John Beekley, the VP of Applications at Corsair. “The 128GB Voyager GT is nearly twice as fast as other high-capacity flash drives, which means less time waiting for your music, video or office files to copy to and from the drive.”

Thanks to its architecture, the flash drive can reach claimed read speeds of 32MB/sec and write speeds of up to 25.6 MB/sec. The drive is housed in a water-resistant rubber case to protect the drive from damage from water or shock. The drive is available to purchase now from Corsair and its authorized distributors. The MSRP for the drive is pegged at about $390.

“The 128GB Flash Voyager GT is ideal for those who need access to a huge volume of data in a format that’s convenient, durable and extremely fast,” said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing for Corsair. “The 128GB Flash Voyager GT can store massive video, photo and music libraries, yet it’s less than half the size of a solid-state drive, effectively obsoleting less-reliable, portable mechanical hard disk drives.”
