Kingston Announces World’s First 1TB Flash Drive At CES 2013


Kingston Technology Corporation – a privately held American multinational most known for its development and manufacture of flash memory products (and other computer-related memory products), is this week showing off what is considered to be the world’s first 1TB flash drive.

Kingston’s DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 comes in at just 2.83″ x 1.06″ x 0.83″, and yet it packs a whole 1 Terabyte of data storage. That’s 1024 GB, for those following — and the company claims the drive can reach read speeds of 240MB/s, and write speeds of 160MB/s.

The DataTraveler HyperX Predator is expected to launch soon and will first be available in a 512GB configuration, with the 1TB model (as described above) expected to hit the market before the end of Q1, 2013.

The flash drive is not expected to be consumer-focused (initially), but rather aimed at those in the enterprise who are perhaps looking for a reliable storage solution that offers that extra bit of space.
