SuperSpeed USB 3.0 drive to hit 400MB/s?USB 3.0 might have been pretty slow in its uptake, but that doesn’t mean the technology isn’t going to just die like that – in fact, we believe that USB 2.0 will be phased out in due time, and 2011 might just mark the year where USB 3.0 takes off in a really big way. Their case is further helped with Fujitsu and Fresco Logic working together to roll out a new SuperSpeed USB drive which offers unprecedented sequential write speeds of 390MB/s and read speeds of 380MB/s – that’s totally phenomenal! The drive is actually a RAID, where it will be powered by Fujitsu’s USB-IF certified MB86E50 IC, working in tandem with the Fresco Logic FL1009B xHCI host controller in order to achieve such speeds. Of course, even if this is an actual device, your data mileage will depend on various scenarios such as the type of drivers installed and hardware used. Looks like this is meant for power users only, as it does seem to sound costly.
