    USB Flash Drives are getting faster and faster OCZ now has one, and they have implemented Dual Channel, with "Blazing Fast Speeds". How fast are Blazing Speeds anyways?

    Hey, I want one....

    That's one tasty flash drive Unholy. I'm not sure I understand why it takes longer for the access time since it's dual channel - I expected a shorter access time, not longer. Is there more information about this technology in flash drives :question:

    well think about it. Seek time on the HDD's is the same.
    You have two controllers (on the HDD Frame) they aren't both the same speed in access and because the speed of each controller is as slow as the cylinder inside the HDD (the flash rom on a flash drive) ur going to loose a few m/s in this case its mere milliseconds and shouldn't really affect the over all outcome, and secondly it might be the fact that the two sizes (Corsair 128mb and OCZ 512mb) affect it.

    Wait a minute...

    ....I'm still confused on the access time. The controllers should be clocked together, not running in asyncronous mode. Access time will go up with larger capacity drives, because you have more columns and rows to scan through looking for your data. If you compared a 128MB stick with a 1GB stick, the access time average reading should be higher with the larger stick. :?

    I'm sorry. Mr. Dictionary is on strike and I couldn't translate that to a language I could understand. Could you perhaps try Cantonese or Outer Mongolian?

    For some reason, I noticed that if you say what you just said backwards, the first two words are "keep fat" :p

    That sounded more like Beavis than Kenny.
