Fremont, CA (February 28, 2007) — Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer products, today launched the new Flash Voyager™ GT line of USB drives designed for the user who demands the highest performance in a USB memory product. Complementing the revolutionary Flash Voyager USB drives, the new Flash Voyager GT brand represents the highest performing USB products Corsair offers in any capacities.

“Consumers are demanding more from a USB drive today than one that simply stores data. It is becoming apparent that the read/write performance of a drive plays a significant role in the overall user experience, and the Flash Voyager GT delivers exactly that — uncompromising speed,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Marketing at Corsair. “With the introduction of the Flash Voyager GT, we now have 2 distinctive product offerings: Flash Voyager GT is all about performance, and the standard Flash Voyager that delivers the best value for a USB memory product.”

Each Flash Voyager GT features hand-selected NAND flash that together with an advanced controller delivers lightening-fast file transfer — up to 5X faster than typical USB drives. Examples of file size transfer speed comparisons are:
