Pretec Launches World's Fastest Flash Drive

Pretec has unveiled a new flash drive called the i-Disk Tango 266x that promises to be the world's fastest USB flash drive with record setting speeds of 40MB/s read and 30MB/s write. The theoretical maximum for USB 2.0 is 60MB/s.

Most devices can’t hit that theoretical limit because of overhead and Pretec claims that 40MB/s is the practical limit for the USB 2.0 specifications meaning its Tango flash drive is as fast as you can get before USB 3.0 is widely available.

The i-Disk Tango is available in capacities ranging from 8GB to 128GB. The drive uses the less costly MLC technology rather than SLC NAND to make the drive more affordable. Pretec also offers software called Magic Chamber for the drive to prevent copying of the drives contents. Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

About the Geek Mind

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.
