We stopped by Super Talent's booth on the CES show flow to check out the company's latest RAIDDrive in action. Claimed to be the world's first USB 3.0 flash drive, the aptly named RAIDDrive uses a striped array of flash chips to make the most of its SuperSpeed interface. Super Talent claims the drive can push up to 320 and 180MB/s with reads and writes, respectively, and was more than happy to give us a demo.
The 4KB random read and write speeds are pretty sluggish compared to what you'll get with a high-end SSD. However, the RAIDDrive's performance with sequential transfers is quite impressive.
Measuring 95 x 34 x 15.4 mm, the RAIDDrive is a little portly for a thumb drive. It packs plenty of storage, though; 32, 64, and 128GB models will be available. The RAIDDrive is shipping in volume already and should be available for purchase soon.
