Patriot has a bunch of different flash drives in its line of offerings. The company has unveiled its latest flash drive called the Patriot Supersonic. The new drive is small and rugged and offers the superior data transfer speeds of USB 3.0 along with an impressive amount of storage inside the rugged enclosure. The drive uses a single chip inside.

Patriot's new flash drive uses a quad-channel interface for performance and has a very lightweight form factor. The single chip design eliminates the bottlenecks common in USB 3.0 drives today by eliminating the separate USB 3.0 bridge chip and USB 3.0 flash memory controller. Not only does that single chip eliminate bottlenecks, but it also makes for a smaller footprint.

 

The flash drive is capable of sequential read speed of 100MB/s and a sequential write speed of 70MB/s. Patriot offers the drive in 32GB and 64GB capacity at an undisclosed price. "Patriot is one of the first companies to integrate a native single-chip USB 3.0 flash memory controller. By pairing the controller with our Quad-Channel technology, we're able to maximize performance with the Supersonic series," says Les Henry, Patriot Memory's Vice President of Engineering. "We are able to shrink the physical size of the USB 3.0 flash drives for even greater portability."
