Sharkoon has unveiled two new USB 3.0 flash drives as part of its Flexi-Drive Accelerate Duo series. The new series consists of one 32GB model and one 64GB model, both rated to offer data speeds of up to 110MB/s (read) and 70MB/s (write). Sharkoon's internal testing also showed that the drives are capable of sequential data speeds of up to 130.5MB/s and 83.76MB/s for the read and write functions respectively. These two flash drives follow Sharkoon's initial launch of one 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive last December, and offer consumers additional capacity options to meet their data storage requirements. Both drives in the Flexi-Drive Accelerate Duo series weigh in at 16g and measure 72x19x8mm (LxWxH). The 32GB version will retail for approximately $96 (€70) while the larger 64GB model will be priced at $171 (€125).
