Last year at CES Victorinox surprised everyone with a 1TB flash drive that the company estimated would sell for almost $US3000. It sounded too good to be true, and given there’s been no sign of it since last January, it apparently was. So can Kingston fill the void left in our hearts with its new HyperX Predator 1TB USB 3 flash drive? Let’s hope so.
With promised read and write speeds topping out at 240MB/s and 160MB/s respectively, filling the HyperX Predator with your data won’t be a week-long chore. And availability is promised to be as soon as the first quarter of 2013, although pricing info hasn’t been revealed just yet. But with the company’s 512GB model coming in at $US1750, you can safely expect it cost a small fortune. [Kingston via Financial Post]
