USB flash drives are almost standard issue amongst IT professionals, and are useful for students and pretty much anyone who uses more than one computer. The capacities of today's flash drives allow us to carry many gigabytes of personal data, so the write performance must also increase to fill the drive in a timely manner. It was only two years ago when a good flash drive could read at a rate of 10 Megabytes per second, and today's Memory Monsters are expected to reach Due to the nature of flash memory, it cannot be written to in the same way as volotile memory (like your computer's DDR2 RAM), so a clever way to increase throughput is to make it dual-channel (as most motherboards have implemented to increase performance). OCZ addresses the performance shortcomings of other USB flash drives with their Rally2 Turbo USB drive, which features dual-channel technology coupled with faster non-volitile memory, which should theoretically enable faster read and write throughput.
