A-DATA have unveiled what they're calling "the first flash drive compatible with Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit)", though as far as we've heard there haven't been many reported problems with existing drives and the Windows 7 RC. Still, if you're looking for up to 64GB of portable storage then the A-DATA XPG Xupreme may be the drive of your dreams.
The USB 2.0 drive boasts up to 30 MB/sec read speeds and is certified for Windows ReadyBoost. While you and I may think it looks like a basic dark-gray stick, A-DATA describe it as "dashing" and "durable"; there's no accounting for taste.
Capacities range from 8GB up to 64GB, and the XPG Xupreme measures 66 x 19 x 10 mm and weighs 15g. We're waiting to hear back from A-DATA on pricing and availability.
