Super Talent today announced the new "USB 3.0 Express RAM Cache drive".
Available in 32 & 64GB capacities, this new drive implements a DRAM caching system to boost small block random performance by up to 110x over USB 2.0 speeds.
Flash performance scores have traditionally focused on sequential read and write speeds, but real world performance often involves the transfer of a larger number of smaller pieces of data, also known as random read and writes speeds. As the number of files increase, flash performance degrades rapidly and this is exactly where a caching system pays off.
"No longer are we talking about a 10x performance increase over USB 2, now we are talking about a real world experience that is up to 110x what our customers have experienced before. Adding RAM Cache to our USB 3.0 Express Drive line-up raises the bar we have establish with our first three USB 3.0 products and reiterates our commitment and leadership in the USB 3.0 space.", Super Talent COO, C.H. Lee.
Measuring 62 x 37 x7.5 mm, the new USB 3.0 Express RAM Cache Drive requires no separate cable and is backward compatible with USB 2.0 ports, at USB 2.0 speeds. This product will be available in March from Super Talent resellers worldwide.
The USB 3.0 Express RAM Drive is demonstrated at Computex Taiwan on June 1st and available in early July from Super Talent resellers worldwide.
