USB 3.0 gear is going to be big at CES 2010 starting in January. There have already been several announcements of different companies that will be showing off USB 3.0 gear at the show. Much of the gear will be hitting the market early next year for consumers to get their hands on too. Super Talent and Symwave have announced that they will be showing off the USB 3.0 RAIDDrive at CES 2010.
The drive uses the Symwave SW6318 device and will be offered in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. Super Talent claims that the drive is ten times faster than other solutions with performance of more than 300 MB/sec.
The drive uses parallel channels of NAND flash in RAID 0 configuration to achieve the performance. The drive is small measuring in at 3.75" x 1.5" x 0.5" and plugs directly into the USB port needing no cables or power adapters.
