When Intel Z170 motherboards came out we were introduced to USB 3.1. USB 3.1 doubles the speed of USB 3.0 from 5 gbps to 10 gbps! With all of these new motherboards offering USB 3.1 connectivity we are starting to see many new USB 3.1 devices. Today we are taking a look at Patriot’s latest USB 3.1 flash drive, the Supersonic Magnum 2. This drive has advertised read and write speeds of 400 MB/s and 300 MB/s respectively, making it one of the fastest flash drives currently available. Today we will be taking a look at the 256GB version, which happens to be the lowest capacity that Patriot offers. Let’s take a look and see just how fast it is!
As our multimedia demands increase along side the quality and subsequent file sizes we are starting to need better solutions for transporting large amounts of data. The most straight forward solution is to use faster nand and interfaces in a traditional USB flash drive. Enter Patriot and their memory expertise with three new USB flash drive products.
Just recently Patriot Memory rolled out 128 GB variants of its Rage XT, Boost XT and and Pulse Supersonic USB 3.0 drives. It looks like they were not done there, they have just announced an even higher capacity 256 GB Boost XT Model (PEF256GSRUSB).
Patriot has decided to come up with its own solution for the limitations of storage spaces with its launch of the Supersonic line of 3.0 USBs. Three new versions of USB 3.0 flash drives were added to this Supersonic line. These include the Supersonic RAGE XT 128 GB, Supersonic Boost XT 128 GB and the Supersonic Pulse 128 GB.
USB 3.0 has really been catching on. Every new motherboard coming out has USB 3.0 connectivity and almost all the new cases have front-mounted USB 3.0 ports. USB 3.0 is 10 times faster than USB 2.0, but the only devices that can truly take advantage of this speed is solid state drives and flash drives. Today we will be looking at a 32GB USB flash drive from Patriot dubbed, “Supersonic”. Let’s check it out!
