Kingston unveils world's first 2 TB flash drive
As flash memory prices go down, the size of the USB drives available starts to reach ridiculous figures for the average user. The latest flash drive announced by Kingston beats all records and becomes the largest flash drive for the consumer market, reaching an impressive 2 TB.
Dubbed DataTraveler Ultimate GT, this USB 3.1 Gen.1 drive comes in 1 TB and 2 TB versions. Backed by a five-year warranty with free technical support, it has a shock-resistant zinc-alloy metal casing, but its dimensions remain compact. This flash drive is compatible with all major operating systems, including Chrome OS, Linux, Mac OS, and Windows (starting with 7 SP1).
Kinston released its first 1 TB flash drive back in 2013, so the new DataTraveler Ultimate GT comes just in time to double that size. The new record-breaking flash drive is expected to hit the market in February, but we have no information about its pricing and launch market. Those interested in it should better start saving already because we cannot expect such a huge amount of flash storage space to come cheap.
