Is that a 1TB flash drive in your pants or are you just happy to see me?
Here at CES, many manufacturers give out flash drives like they're candy. Usually, they're filled with press kits and images, and range from 2GB to 16GB or so in size. For regular consumers, many of us have at least a couple of thumb drives laying around. 32GB and 64GB USB 3.0 flash drives are pretty commonplace these days and can easily be had for less than $1/GB.
However, Kingston today is going totally bonkers with a new 1TB flash drive that is in its DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 product family. Yes, you heard that right -- one terabyte! The DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 is already shipping in a 512GB configuration, and the 1TB model will be available to purchase later this quarter.
The USB 3.0 drive will offer read speeds of 240MB/sec and write speeds of 160MB/sec. It's not as fast as the SSDs that ship in many of today's laptop and desktops, but it's definitely plenty fast for a storage device that fits in your pocket.
Unfortunately, pricing is not available at this time, but it likely won’t come cheap.
A 1TB flash drive is definitely a niche product, but we're quite sure that there will be more than a few people that will scramble to pickup such a device. And who knows, perhaps companies will be giving out 1TB flash drives at CES 2018...
