Hide your USB 2.0 flash drive, it's suddenly about to feel inadequate. The same will probably be true of your USB 3.0 flash drive. Taking data transfers to ridiculously fast levels, Corsair today introduced its Flash Voyager GTX USB Flash Drive family , which offers both big capacities and speedy performance. We're talking up to 450MB/s read and up to 350MB/s write speeds in 128GB and 256GB flavors.

According to Corsair, the Flash Voyager GTX sports solid state drive (SSD) DNA to keep the drive racing along at peak performance. USB Attached SCSI and S.M.A.R.T. monitoring are part of the package, as is TRIM support to curb degradation after extended heavy use.

"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," Corsair says. "Take your favorite games with you to a LAN party, or quickly transfer your whole movie collection for easy viewing later."
