Every year a lot of new technologies and amazing devices are unveiled. This year will be no different. Fountain Valley, Calif.-based Kingston Technology has made the “world’s largest flash drive.” The flash drive is called DataTraveler HyperX Predator. Any guesses what could be the size? It’s 1 Terabyte (1,024 gigabytes).
This thumb size (roughly 3 inches long) 1 TB DataTraveler HyperX Predator flash drive measures 2.83″ x 1.06″ x 0.83″. This USB 3.0 device can read data at 240MB/s and write at 160MB/s, while the USB 2.0 device can read data at 30MB/s and write at 30MB/s; hence, very large files can be copied or transferred at super fast speed.
