In Las Vegas at CES 2013, Kingston introduced the world’s largest USB Flashdrive – DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive and I’m not talking about physical size, rather size in capacity. Because the DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive is the first thumb drive in the world to cross the 1TB capacity.

The DT HyperX Predator 3.0 features a read speed up to 240MB/s and a 160MB/s write, fast enough to achieve SuperSpeed USB 3.0 certification. Data saved in these 1 TB DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive will be protected by a zinc alloy metal casing, shock resistance and sporting a high-end design. It’s also backward compatible with USB 2.0.

Kingston already have a 512GB model of DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive that has a staggering price-tag of $1,750, so by the time the 1 TB hit the market this quarter, the 1 TB model will cost more – a lot more!

This new 1 TB DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive is perfect for those who rather carry your files in a thumb drive or external HD than use a cloud storage, or those working with large files like HD videos or high resolution photos.

In case you’re wondering the physical size of this new drive, it’s just 72mm x 26.94mm x 21mm, about the size of a stick of chewing gum.
