Kingston has released the new DataTraveler Max USB 3.2 Gen 2, which breaks all records for read and write speeds.
It is true that USB sticks are not as common as before, when they were the main method of transporting data safely; but they are still widely used in many sectors and by many fans who do not want to use the cloud to store their files.
For these users, Kingston has continued to invest in the development of faster USB drives, and this week announced the new DataTraveler Max ; The new model connects via USB-C to our computer (and it should also work with our tablets), except that it takes advantage of the latest standard, USB 3.2 Gen 2, which is especially good if we have a new laptop that implements it.
If that’s the case, we can enjoy insane speeds in this memory. Kingston promises 1,000 MB / s reading, and 900 MB / s writing , although as usual, the speed we achieve will largely depend on the files we are copying and if our system follows the USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard. As a result, this is one of the fastest USB sticks on the market, probably the fastest publicly available from a large manufacturer like Kingston.
The DataTraveler Max will be available in three different capacities, starting at 256GB, going through 512GB and going up to 1TB; so it does not offer as much storage space as a portable SSD , although the size is obviously much smaller, with dimensions of 82.17 mm x 22 mm x 9.02 mm. It is designed to be used with only one hand, with a sliding cover to reveal the connector, and an LED status indicator; We can attach it to the keychain easily, and it weighs only 12 grams.
The Kingston DataTraveler Max is priceless at the moment, although we hope it’s not exactly cheap considering its features.
