Kingston will offer 1TB and 2TB next month with the new DataTraveler Ultimate GT USB flash drive as described below:
We are now spoiled for choice when it comes to deciding how to carry data around. There’s USB sticks, portable hard drives that don’t require a power cable, SD cards, and of course, the cloud. So the limiting factor isn’t how to carry data around in your pocket, it’s how much you can carry?
According to Betanews, Kingston is increasing the answer we can give to that question to 2TB next month with the launch of its DataTraveler Ultimate GT USB flash drive. By squeezing 2TB of storage into the Ultimate GT, Kingston can claim to offer the world’s largest capacity USB flash drive.
The Ultimate GT will be made available in 1TB and 2TB capacities with USB 3.1 transfer speeds, which is a good move considering how much data you can transfer on and off this stick. USB 3.1 offers a maximum of 1,280MB/s transfer speeds, although getting anywhere near that speed depends as much on the USB port as the drive itself. It uses a zinc-alloy metal casing “for shock resistance,” includes a 5-year warranty
