According to Betanews, Kingston is launching it’s 2TB USB flash drive next month with the launch of its DataTraveler Ultimate GT USB flash drive. By squeezing 2TB of storage into the Ultimate GT, Kingston can claim to offer the world’s largest capacity USB flash drive.
The Ultimate GT will be made available in 1TB and 2TB capacities with USB 3.1 transfer speeds, which is a good move considering how much data you can transfer on and off this stick. USB 3.1 offers a maximum of 1,280MB/s transfer speeds, although getting anywhere near that speed depends as much on the USB port as the drive itself.
The DataTraveler Ultimate GT measures 0.84 by 1.06 by 2.83 inches and employs a push-pull method of opening and closing, which means there’s no cap to lose. It uses a zinc-alloy metal casing “for shock resistance,” includes a 5-year warranty, and boasts compatibility with Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7(SP1), Mac OS v10.9.x onwards, Linux 2.6.x onwards, and Chrome OS. Pricing has yet to be revealed by Kingston.
