You probably recognize Chaintech as a one-time big player in the graphics market before the company merged with Walton Advanced Engineering in 2005. Since then, the company's focus has shifted towards memory products, including the introduction of what Walton Chaintech claims is the world's smallest USB 3.0 drive.
"The Astro Drive Series A101 is miniature in comparison to the 2.5-inch products sold by other competitors. It is more mobile than an iPod, and is currently the smallest USB 3.0 device on the market. This makes this device extremely convenient for consumers on the go. In addition, the dual color exterior design in red and silver conveys high-tech qualities, while also adding a sense of trendiness with its flame-red contours. This makes the A101 more than just a cold, emotionless tech product. Instead, it is an exceptional product that encompasses both elements of fashion and quality," Walton Chaintech said.
The Astro Series A101 thumb drive boasts up to 186MB/s read and up to 130MB/s write speeds, or six times the performance of USB 2.0 drives chugging along at 30MB/s and 20MB/s reads and writes. Walton Chaintech said it will come in a variety of storage capacities, including 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB.
