Things to Consider
USB 3.0 Interface
- For transferring data between devices, you really can't beat a
USB drive. With the introduction of USB 3.0, transfer speeds have
significantly increased and with drives can hold as much as an entire
computer due to higher storage capacities. And naturally, some USB 3.0
drives are faster than others. High performance USB 3.0 drives are
distinguished from standard USB drives by higher read/write speeds.
Since they are faster they work especially well for large files, such
as raw photos, video files, or a large data library. Photographers,
videographers, and data analysts especially will appreciate the fast
data transfer speeds and high storage capacity. With a high capacity
USB 3.0 drive, you can virtually hold all your computer's data files in
the palm of your hand.
- The USB 2.0 interface was limited in that it supported data rates
up to 480Mb/sec, whereas the USB 3.0 interface supports up to 5Gb/sec,
approximately 10 times the speed potential of the older USB 2.0
interface. Newer USB 3.0 flash drives allow users to take advantage of
the higher performance potential of the USB 3.0 interface. In addition
to being faster, the USB 3.0 interface provides more power for device
charging and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 devices.
- Is a high performance USB 3.0 drive actually faster than a
standard USB 2.0 drive? The short answer - absolutely! Verbatim's high
performance USB 3.0 drives use dual-channel architecture to increase
data transfer speeds. Compared to single-channel drives, dual-channel
USB 3.0 drives can transfer data up to twice as fast. Single channel
drives can only read or write data onto one flash memory IC (Integrated
Circuit) at a time. Dual channel drives can read or write data onto two
flash memory IC's at the same time, effectively doubling the data rate.
- If you recently bought a new computer, chances are your computer
is equipped with one or more USB 3.0 ports. Using a USB 3.0 drive with
a USB 3.0 port allows you to take advantage of additional performance
the USB 3.0 interface has to offer, while still being compatible with
USB 2.0 drives. You can also use your USB 3.0 drives in older USB 2.0
ports, although the performance will be lower. For maximum speed and
performance, use your USB 3.0 drive with a USB 3.0 port.
- Beyond dual channel or other architectural approaches to increase
speed, higher performing MLC flash IC's are also employed to further
push the performance envelope of ultra-high performance USB 3.0 drives.
- MLC flash stores 2 bit per cell, which offers faster reader and
writing performance than the typical high density TLC (three bit per
cell) or ultra-high density 3D flash (3 bits per cell, vertically
stacked in multiple layers) used in most consumer storage products.
