The CES mega-event in L.A. is starting to unveil some of the greatest innovations we will enjoy in 2013. Today we have confirmation that the data storage gadgets manufacturer Kingston is launching the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 flash drive that has ginormous storage of 1 TB.
So let’s see now… smaller than my pinkie, 1 TB capacity and a transfer speed of 240 MB/s for reading and 160 MB/s for writing. What can we wish for more? I know: even smaller, more storage and faster, but I’m sure we’ll get there and by then we can enjoy these great features.
This is a huge step from the first HyperX model that maxed a 64 GB capacity and it has an amazing 4x more storage space than last year’s model that stretched to 256 GB. Unfortunately we will be able to enjoy the 1 TB in about 2-3 months as Kingston presented the 512 GB model. Still there is one important veil of mystery left as we have no information regarding the pricing, which might be a setback, but I’m sure the guys at Kingston will realize what they have on their hands and will do their best to keep the product accessible.
