Patriot has announced a new USB 3.0 flash drive, the Supersonic Boost XT. The rubberized housing will protect the internals that are capable of transfer speeds up to 90MB/s, much better than any of my USB 2.0 flash drives. The drive measures just 6 cm long and 2 cm wide, making it perfect to take with you, even on a key chain. The five year warranty will allow for replacement in the event that something bad should happen to the drive. The plug and play functionality will be compatible with several versions of Windows, Mac OS9 and later, and Linux with a minimum kernel version of 2.4. Product Manager Meng Jay Choo described the drive as ”Merging the ruggedness of our Xporter line with the speed of our Supersonic line, then shrinking the form factor.” The drive will be available in capacities of 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB.
