  1. I don’t understand. Having a software ramdisk to speed up transfers? This makes the operation appear to finish quickly, but if I need to unplug it, the data is not on the flash drive itself. What a useless gimmick.

  2. why usb 3.0 have 5Gb Bandwidth.
    But it performance has 5388 MB/s

  3. seriously how is this even featured here…. this is a useless product that completely ignores it’s main purpose

    • Take a look at the linked press release. This is just a cut & paste with minor edits of that with pretty pictures but no added value. It’s kind of sad really.

  4. Useless product, gimmick… meanwhile, behind your back, just about every part of your computer uses “useless” concept of caching to speed things up.

  5. People who have problems understanding what it does (yet are happy to comment): please read a bit about caching: just about every part of your computer is using this mechanism extensively (CPU, GPU, HDD/SDD, etc). Caching concept is not a gimmick.

    • Caching is all fine and dandy right up to a point, when you deal with removable media.

      When you have removable media, you cannot affoard to keep data in some cache, especially volatile like dram or sram.

      This (and cost obviously) is the reason why flash drives dont have any dram cache, while ssds mostly do.

      • All external disks (mechanical and SSDs based, old and new designs) use caching. Yes, pulling out removable media before it completes the operation, without proper ejecting it, is (and always was) not advisable. Nothing conceptually new here, really.

      • Let’s say with this flash drive, a 5gb file can be “written” to it in 1 second. Then I want to safely eject. The operating system will either say the disk is in use, take a very long time to unmount, or some other undefined behavior. This will confuse the user. The operating system’s built in caching is probably more effective than this.

      • They mostly cache mapping tables.

        Very little actual user data is cached.
