Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 512GB USB flash drive

Kingston Technology is claiming the world's highest capacity USB 3.0 flash drive in the shape of the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0, set to ship in a one terabyte (1TB) version.

Announced by the company's Kingston Digital Europe affiliate, the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 is shipping now in a 512GB version, with the 1TB capacity set to be available later in the first quarter of this year.

The new drive is also slated as the fastest USB 3.0 flash drive in the Kingston storage line-up, with read speeds of up to 240MB/s and write speeds of 160MB/s, according to the firm.

"The large capacity and fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds allow users to save time as they can access, edit and transfer applications or files such as HD movies directly from the drive without any performance lag," said Ann Keefe, Kingston regional director for the UK and Ireland.

Featuring a casing made of zinc alloy for shock resistance and high-end design, the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 also comes with a custom Kingston key ring and a HyperX valet keychain.

The new drive is fully certified for SuperSpeed USB 3.0 operation, while keeping backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 to allow it to be used with older computer hardware.

Pricing for the 1TB DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 drive has yet to be disclosed, but the shipping 512GB version carries a recommended price of £595.
