Kingston has broken for the record for largest consumer flash drive. Not physically, of course—it’s still the size of one’s thumb—but in terms of capacity: a whopping two terabytes fits in the company’s new DataTraveler Ultimate GT.
Kingston made the announcement at CES 2017 in Las Vegas this week. The product will be available in February.
“At Kingston, we push the limits of what’s possible,” said Jean Wong, Flash business manager. “With the DataTraveler Ultimate GT, we empower users to increase their data storage mobility in a highly manageable form factor. This is a terrific follow up to our 1TB drive released in 2013 and by doubling the capacity, users can store and carry even larger amounts of data easily.”
According to Kingston, 2TB can store 768,000 Jpeg photos taken on a modern smartphone; 531,000 songs, or nearly 100 PC games.
