The DataTraveler HyperX Predator 1 GB will offer Read-speeds of up to 240 MB per second and Write-speeds of up to 160 MB per second and will have a dimension of just 2.83″ x 1.06″ x 0.83″.

“Our new DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 allows users to store their entire digital world on a portable USB 3.0 Flash drive,” says Andrew Ewing, Flash Memory Business Manager of Kingston.

Considering the large capacity and the price factor, the Predator range is not being targeted at individual end-consumers but more at the enterprise or corporate consumers.

DataTraveler HyperX Predator will be compatible with Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Linux 2.6 and higher.

The 512GB edition of DataTraveler HyperX Predator has been priced at $1,750, so you can expect a hefty price for the new 1 TB edition.
