Today Mushkin unveiled its smallest USB 3.0 flash drive ever. The all new Atom USB 3.0 Flash Drive is extremely small for the amount of performance and storage capacity it packs under the hood. Mushkin says that the Atom USB 3.0 enables users to leave the drive in their USB ports while working on-the-go and not worry about damaging it thanks to its small size.

Available in capacities of 8GB, 16GB and 32GB, the Atom USB 3.0 is capable of read speeds of 155MB/s and write speeds up to 21.5MB/s, all while pulling less than 1W of power consumption under load. "The Atom USB flash drive is designed with ultimate portability and convenience in mind. Having such a small and accommodating size eliminates the need to eject the flash drive and risk losing it when mobile," said Brian Flood, the Director of Product Management at Mushkin, Inc. "For our users who regularly use slimmer, portable devices such as tablets, the Atom is a definite solution when you need extra storage on a daily basis."
