Kingston is one of the leaders in all things memory-related, and that also includes Flash storage devices. This time, Kingston is doing this a little different when it comes to storage, as rather than blinding speed it's going for massive capacity. Kingston has just unveiled its DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 USB drive with a capacity of 512GB and 1TB. That's right, this USB drive is packing up to 1TB of storage, which should be plenty for even the most on-the-go individual. There's still some fast speeds too, as the DT HyperX Predator 3.0 features read speeds of 240MB/s and write speeds of 160MB/s. The drive comes in at 2.84" x 1.06" x 0.82" without the attached keyring, while it jumps to 3.49" with it. That's still plenty portable to take with wherever you go, while the zinc metal alloy casing keeps it safe from harm.

The Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 USB drive is available now in the 512GB capacity, while the 1TB drive arrives later in the first quarter. No price was mentioned, but each drive is backed by a five-year warranty and free technical support.
