Default USB 3.0 Controller Running Hot, Issues with USB Sticks

There seems to be a very reasonable reason behind this, at least if we’re to believe a report from French website 01net that quotes Saeed Arash Far, who is the Director of engineering at Patriot Memory. According to him the current generation of USB 3.0 compatible flash memory controllers are running very hot, which is causing problems in small devices such as USB thumb drives, although there are a couple of ways around this problem.

One solution is to use two controllers and run them in tandem, each at a slower clock speed than a single controller. This is not a cheap solution, nor is it especially elegant, but it’s the way things are done at the moment. The problem is that this solution isn’t as reliable as using a single controller, since there’s a slight risk of data corruption.
