Fast Patriot RAM and Flash

Patriot today boasted that it would debut both the world's fastest computer memory and USB flash storage. The memory maker is set to unveil a new addition to its Extreme Performance line of DDR2 memory that will be rated as PC2-10100, offering 10.1GB/sec of bandwidth at what the company claims is a record-breaking 1302MHz. The extra speed is vital for gamers or anyone overclocking memory-hungry, multi-core processors such as Intel's Core 2 Quad line, Patriot says. Availability has not been released but should follow shortly after an introduction at CES.

The company will also take its opportunity at the show to launch Version 2 of its Xporter XT flash storage (pictured). The USB 2 drives should also be the fastest in their class, achieving a 266X speed rating -- a full 33% faster than the company's current models. The throughput translates to a 39MB/sec read rate and promises ideal performance for those who regularly store programs or other large files on the rugged, rubberized drive. Capacities will range between 1GB and 4GB, though pricing again remains unavailable.
