Pretec Releases World’s 1st USB 3.0 Card Reader

Taipei, Taiwan, June 1st 2010 - Pretec, the leader of the highest capacity (128GB) CF card, fastest CF card(667X), and first SDXC card in the world, announces P240 USB3.0 High-Speed Multi-Card Reader, the 1st USB3.0 card reader in the world supporting high-performance SDXC, CF and other major memory cards. A provider of “Cool Memories, the Ultimate in Style & Speed,” Pretec offers a full series of high-performance card readers in the world to be shown at Pretec booth at Computex Taipei 2010 (TWTC Nangang Exhibition Hall, Lower Exhibition Hall booth J317a).

With interface speed of 5Gb/s (or 625MB/s, 10X faster than USB 2.0), USB 3.0 has solved the speed bottleneck for high speed memory card data transfer. Today’s high speed memory card can reach to >50MB/s for SDXC (Pretec SDXC card, also introduced today), >100MB/s for CF card (Pretec 567X/667X 128GB CF card, announced last week), >300MB/s for SSD (Pretec P4000 SATA II SSD, announced last week), all above have far exceeded the transfer speed of USB 2.0 (theoretical data is 60MB/s, and practical maximum is around 40MB/s) and hence much need the 10X speed enhancement of USB3.0. Before the availability of USB 3.0 card readers, Pretec ExpressCard CF card reader and Pretec ExpressCard SD/SDXC card reader are the fastest card readers in the world capable of transferring data in the range of 100MB/s. Pretec P240 USB3.0 Multi-Card Reader is a perfect solution for potable usage, which has made Pretec’s full line card reader series the most complete and most comprehensive in the world. The ultra high performance allows user applications to demand a higher performance connection between PC and increasingly sophisticated peripherals.

Pretec P240 USB3.0 Multi-Card reader will start sampling by next month, with mass production scheduled in August.
