COMPUTEX 2014 — TAIPEI, Taiwan — June 2, 2014 — Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance components to the PC hardware market, today announced the new Flash Voyager GTX USB 3.0 flash drive in 256GB and 128GB capacities. Stylishly thin and lightweight, the Flash Voyager GTX is the fastest USB flash drive Corsair has ever produced, offering blisteringly fast peak transfer speeds of up to 450MB/sec read and 350MB/sec write, vastly reducing waiting time when accessing or transferring files on the go.
The Flash Voyager GTX boasts the inner technologies of an SSD that will keep the drive operating at peak performance for years to come. USB Attached SCSI and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring ensure blazing fast, error-free transfers of large video music and photo collections, while TRIM support curbs degradation so the Flash Voyager GTX retains its performance, even after extended heavy use. Compatible with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, the Flash Voyager GTX works on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux with no additional software required.
With up to 256GB of storage, Flash Voyager GTX’s enormous capacity options ensure that even the largest files, such as operating systems, game installs or high definition video projects, can easily fit on the drive alongside other multimedia content — with plenty of room to spare. Take your favorite games with you to a LAN party, or quickly transfer your whole movie collection for easy viewing later. It’s the perfect storage gadget for any student, content-hoarder, or computer power user.
