Kingston Digital, a manufacturer of memory products, has launched HyperX MAX 3.0 external USB 3.0 Drive that has a read speed of up to 195Mbps, and a write speed of up to 160Mbps, when paired with a USB 3.0 compatible device.
The company says that the new drive is a fast and durable external USB 3.0 storage drive, and it expects to start shipping of this drive in December.
The SuperSpeed USB certified HyperX MAX 3.0 drive delivers USB 3.0 transfer speeds up to 10 times faster than the USB 2.0, and is also compatible with USB 2.0 devices, as the speed defaults back to USB 2.0 capability.
Kingston HyperX MAX 3.0 features shock-resistant parts; silent with no moving parts; consumes 4.5W of power and comes in capacities of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
The company says moving or backing up HD video, RAW images or other large project files can take advantage of the high-speed data transfers of the USB 3.0 interface.
Kingston USB product manager Andrew Ewing said the new HyperX MAX 3.0 external USB 3.0 drive follows the tradition of Kingston’s HyperX enthusiast DRAM family providing users with premium quality and extreme performance.
