Today at Computex, Corsair has announced the latest addition to the Voyager series of flash drives which features "SSD Performance." The brand new Voyager GTX has SSD technology inside that will tailor to the performance enthusiast on the go.
The new addition is touted to have speeds of up to 450MB/s while reading files, and 350MB/s while writing data. It could be used for anything from running an OS, to game installs, watching HD movies, etc. It's like a full blown SSD in the palm of your hand.
The Voyager GTX features USB Attached SCSI to daisy chain drives, S.M.A.R.T. monitoring and TRIM to maintain peak performance. The flash drive is compatible with virtually every OS. It supports both USB 3.0 as well as 2.0. The drive comes with two storage options: 128GB for $119.99 and 256 at $199.99, respectively. The price of the flash drive is comparable to the pricing of many SSDs on the market today, which can go for $45 for 32GB, and all the way up to $2000 for a 400GB PCI Express-based SSD.
The Voyager GTX is expected to be released in July, and will include a 5 year warranty. The announcement of this flash drive is one of many products that Corsair has planned to release in the coming months.
