USB 3.0 sticks are starting to proliferate, and even if Intel hasn't yet managed to integrate a controller into its own chipsets, laptop makers aren't waiting. You can usually tell USB 3.0 ports by the tongue being coloured blue, or by an "SS" label above the port, standing for "Super Speed".
Patriot has been around the memory game for a while, and its Supersonic USB 3.0 stick, apart from its blue USB connector, looks much like any other USB stick.
On paper the sequential read and write speeds of 100MBps and 70MBps respectively aren't rated as highly as say, a SandForce-powered solid-state drive (SSD), but it's certainly a lot better than your standard mechanical USB 2.0 external hard drive, at least on paper.
Plugging the stick into a GA-USB 3.0 controller card through a PCI-E 2.0 connection, we used CrystalDiskMark to benchmark the stick, with a randomised pattern.
