Fantom Drives rolls out the G-Force Flash Storage Suite

Fantom Drives has announced the new G-Force 3.1 external flash storage suite for use with throughput intensive video and creative applications. 

The new drive models are available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB SSD capacities and include transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, featuring USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C connectivity. The data transfer rates support applications in photography, 4K video storage/editing, music and large file storage/migration.

Fantom Drives G-Force 3.1 flash storage drives are backward compatible with USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 ports and ship with both Type A and Type C cables. The units allow the transfer of a two-hour long high-definition (1080p) movie (4.7GB) in approximately 10 seconds, says Fantom Drives CEO Hamid Khorsandi.



The drives are available with either a black or silver case forged of solid brushed aluminum. Desktop computer users seeking the advantages offered by the G-Force 3.1 have the option of upgrading their systems with the company’s new PCIe Host Card (Part Number: PCIEHA) which allows for maximum utilization of the drive’s 10Gbps transfer speeds without having to upgrade the entire computer.

To support desktop computing users lacking USB 3.1 connectivity, an optional PCIe X4 Host Adapter (Type-C & Type-A) is available that provides two USB 3.1 downstream receptacle ports capable of handling SuperSpeed+ (10 Gbps) throughput. The adapter also provides full backward compatibility with USB3.0, USB2.0, and USB1.1 devices and only requires an empty PCIe 3.0 x4, x8, or x16 slot in the computer for full USB3.1 performance. 

The G-Force Flash Storage Suite products can be purchased at the Fantom Drive website.
