This is probably due to a bin improvement on the chips themselves, which means faster chips at the same or lower power with almost no changes at all.

The drive comes in basic packaging, which includes a quick-start guide, an 18” USB 3.0 cable, and a USB 3.0 Y cable, which has two USB connectors: one for power
