Fremont, CA (November 21, 2005) — Adding to its award-winning Flash Voyager USB2.0 drives, Corsair Memory today announced immediate availability of a new capacity — 4GB. Enclosed in the Corsair proprietary all-rubber Flash Voyager housing and boasting water-resistant/temperature tolerant properties, the new 4GB drive allows users to carry more valuable data and applications without compromise. Equipped with a security application and featuring dual channel technology, the 4GB Flash Voyager delivers a perfect combination of functionality, capacity and performance.
Favored by those who are on the go, the Flash Voyager drives bring additional features to make the perfect mobile companion. First in the industry to feature an all-rubber housing, the USB drive performs reliably even under the most extreme conditions. Whether it is exposed to severe temperature, moisture or physical abuse, the Flash Voyager performs consistently to hold the valuable data. To promote data security, each Flash Voyager is readied with a security application that allows users to create a hidden, password-protected partition on the USB drive.
Engineered with the same dual channel technology found in other Flash Voyager drives, the new 4GB USB drive delivers blazing fast read and write performance at 19MB/sec and 13MB/sec respectively. When reading or writing data to the drive, dual channel technology allows twice the interface width between the NAND flash and the controller, hence delivering twice the performance.
