FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 28 -- Corsair(R), a worldwide leader in high-performance computer products, today launched the new Flash Voyager(TM) 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."
Built to Corsair's legendary quality and reliability standards, the new Flash Voyager GT USB drives deliver sustained read/write performance up to 34MB/sec and 28MB/sec respectively. Taking full advantage of the new flash controller, the new GT features enhanced dual channel and interleave memory technologies.

First in the industry to feature all-rubber housing, the USB Flash drive performs reliably even under the most extreme conditions. Whether it is exposed to severe temperature, moisture or physical abuse, the Flash Voyager product line performs consistently to hold valuable data. To promote data security, each Flash Voyager is readied with a security application that allows users to create a hidden, password-protected partition on the USB drive. The password is encrypted with 256bit AES encryption, the most secure encryption algorithms available.
The Corsair Flash Voyager GT USB drives are available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities and are available immediately through Corsair's authorized distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers worldwide. The introductory MSRP for the three capacities are: $29.99 (2GB Flash Voyager GT / part number CMFUSB2.0-2GBGT), $59.99 (4GB Flash Voyager GT / part number: CMFUSB2.0- 4GBGT), and $119.99 (Flash Voyager GT 8GB / part number: CMFUSB2.0-8GBGT).
