The new Super Talent flash drives plug into a standard 9-pin USB header inside on the motherboard, to function as a dedicated ReadyBoost drive. With 25MB per second read speeds and sub-millisecond access times they are supposed to be a cost effective performance upgrade.The Exelerator drives are offered with either vertical or horizontal connectors to accommodate space constraints within different enclosures.
Storage options include 1GB, 2GB and 4GB. The 2GB model is expected to retail for approximately $25. Mass production will start in June. Super Talent will show the drives at the Computex 2007.
Super Talent Marketing Director, Joe James, commented, “Exelerator drives offer Vista users a quick, easy, permanent way to boost performance without sacrificing an external USB port. These exceptionally fast drives alleviate the need to always have a ReadyBoost USB drive plugged into the front of your chassis.”

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
