Corsair has announced their new line of "Flash Voyager GT Turbo" flash drives that will blow the doors off of most USB drives on the market and might even give some SSD's a run for their money.
These USB 3.0 drives will be natively compatible with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux and backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports. With read speeds of up to 260 MB/s and write speeds of up to 235 MB/s, these drives should meet any high speed data transfer needs.
The drives will come in three sizes, 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB, but that speed comes at a cost. The 32 GB drive will have a suggested retail price of $49.99 (USD), the 64 GB will retail for $89.99, and the 128 GB drive will weigh in at a hefty $179.99 when released.
The drives are backed by a nice 5 year warranty and the drive itself looks fairly well made, but will the hefty price tag turn consumers off? Only time will tell.
