Corsair announced today its new 16GB Voyager "GT" USB 2.0 flash drive that will be showing at CeBIT next week in Hanover, Germany. The company typically markets its devices as more rugged than other removable memory devices, with its Survivor line designed to even be water resistant to 200 meters. But the GT is instead shown off for its transfer speeds.
The GT promises speeds up to four times faster than "average USB" devices, according to Corsair, claiming a 1.06 MB office file takes less than 2 seconds , 270 MB worth of pictures takes 24 seconds, and a 1.63 GB movie takes 98 seconds. Hi-Speed USB 2.0 transfer performs at up to 480 Mbps (60 MB/sec), and Full Speed generally around 12 Mbps (1.5 MB/sec).
Suggested retail price of this drive is $169.99.
