“Symwave’s SW6318 device was the obvious choice for our new line of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 mobile storage products,” said C.H. Lee, Chief Operating Officer at Super Talent Technology. “Our USB 3.0 RAIDDrive, based on Symwave’s SW6318 device, delivers phenomenal performance of more than 300 MB/sec.”
“Super Talent continues their leadership in USB drives by delivering the world’s first mobile USB 3.0 flash drive,” said John O’Neill, Vice President of Marketing at Symwave. “By combining their patented technology with our SW6318 device, the industry’s first and highest performance RAID storage controller, Super Talent has delivered a new generation of flash drives with truly jaw-dropping performance.”
The USB 3.0 RAIDDrive uses parallel channels of NAND flash in a performance doubling (RAID0) configuration to achieve the unprecedented performance. Measuring 3.75” x 1.5” x 0.5”, the SuperSpeed drive is compact and portable. Like most USB pen drives or thumb drives, it doesn’t require a separate cable and plugs directly into any USB port. This product is available now from Super Talent resellers worldwide.
Super Talent’s USB 3.0 RAIDDrive with Symwave’s SW6318 storage controller will be showcased at CES 2010, January 7-10, 2010 in both Symwave’s private suite at the Las Vegas Hilton (Suite #2900) adjacent to the Convention Center and Super Talent’s booth (#35632) in the South Hall.
