Kingston Digital launches USB 3.0 flash drive

Kingston Digital (http://www.kingston.com) is shipping its first USB 3.0 Flash drive. The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Flash drive takes advantage of the faster USB 3.0 specification that has up to 10 times the data transfer rates of the current USB 2.0 specification.

The DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 has a read speed of 80MB/second and a write speed of 60MB/second. It’s available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities.

To ensure backwards compatibility, Kingston is also including a Y cable as some USB 2.0 ports require it to initialize USB 3.0 drives. And you’ll need it for Macs as they currently don’t support USB 3.0.
