Bootable USB drives for Microsoft® Windows 8.1 feature Windows To Go
describes it, "To become certified, a USB drive must pass a battery of certification tests, as well as undergo self-hosting across a variety of PCs to test-drive
for high performance compatibility with Windows 8.1 and Windows To Go. Additionally, certified drives must:
Be built for high random read/write speeds and support the thousands of random access I/O operations per second required for running normal Windows workloads smoothly.
Have been tuned to ensure they boot and run on hardware certified for use with either Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
Be built to last. Certified drives are backed with manufacturer warranties and should continue operating under normal usage."

Our RC4 & RC8 drives are not flash drives but multi-channel SSDs, featuring a SSD Processor. When an Operating System and/or Applications are loaded, it is not a single file that is transferred but hundreds or thousands of small files. In the chart to the right, see how the RC4 & RC8 can boot at lightning fast speeds!
USB 2.0 Performance - Exceptional Legacy Performance
Not quite ready for USB 3.0? Even in a USB 2.0 port, the advanced multi-channel architecture and write acceleration features of the RC4 & RC8 are still working to enable this drive to boot amazingly quickly even in a bandwidth limited USB 2.0 port.
The theoretical maximum of USB 2.0 is 60MB/s (43.5 MB/s of Real Data). The RC4 & RC8 fill the USB 2.0 bus to its capacity across the board.
Not only does the integration of SSD technology enable the RC4 & RC8 to deliver exceptional real world performance but outstanding reliability as well. Using the SSD firmware, the RC4 & RC8 is over-provisioned at an enterprise level of 10% and 27%. Although this results in less storage space available to the user, this change significantly elevates the drives performance and increases product longevity and reliability.
