Kingston's First NVMe SSD, The KC1000

Kingston has reintroduced the KC1000 NVMe SSD. We first saw the drive in January at CES, but the company wanted to hold the details until the official launch. Seemingly, that is in the very near future--mid June.
The KC series has historically targeted system builders and corporations upgrading systems en masse. Kingston released several client SSDs under the KC brand, and many of them were tuned for increased stability and longevity but share similar hardware with models from the standard consumer product line. The KC1000 press release seems to turn the tables and take this series in a slightly different direction.
 
"The demands of today’s performance power users are constantly being put to the test as new data-intensive applications push the boundaries of what can be achieved with even the market’s high performance professional workstations and most powerful gaming rigs,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “KC1000 is the perfect solution to meet the needs of media and design professionals, gaming enthusiasts and anyone who needs ultra-low latency storage performance to end data bottlenecks. This native NVMe device offers one of the industry’s most powerful storage solutions for high-resolution content delivery, virtual reality applications, accelerated game play or a competitive edge for the creative professional on tight deadlines.”
 
Gamers, power users, and enthusiasts have always been directed to the HyperX brand, but in recent years that series shifted to target gamers exclusively. Kingston calls the KC1000 an "Ultimate Storage Upgrade for HD Video, PC Enthusiasts, Gaming and More." The release later identified a list of specific application categories the series will perform well in:
 
High-resolution video editing Virtual and augmented reality applications CAD software applications Streaming media Graphically intensive video games Data visualization Real-time analytics  
It seems the KC series may begin to target a wider audience with the introduction of the first Kingston NVMe SSD.
 
 
The KC1000 series ships in three capacity sizes, but there are a total of six product SKUs. For each capacity, the drives ships as either a bare drive or with a half-height, half-length (HHHL) add-in card adapter. The performance coming from the Phision PS5007-E7 controller paired with Toshiba 15nm planar NAND looks strong. The sequential read performance reaches 2,700 MB/s, and the sequential writes are 900 MB/s for the 240GB model and 1,600 MB/s for the two largest-capacity drives. Random performance is also impressive, with up to 290,000 IOPS (225,000 for the 240GB). Users can reach up to 190,000 random write IOPS.
 
Kingston backs the KC1000 series with a generous five-year limited warranty with ample endurance figures that reach as high as 1PB for the 960GB drive.

Bought a copy of Heavy Rain just now, should be here next week! Realized how pitiful my PS3 collection is right now and this has always been a game I've been meaning to play. How about you?

I just recently bought wonder cat adventures by using our money in the coffins, sadly our internet is down so finding a computer to play it on has been rather difficult.

I recently purchased Star Wars Battlefront. It's been a very fun game thus far!

I love the Hero's vs Hero's gameplay mode. I just wish they would add more hero's. Currently they have Han, Leia, Luke, Darth Vader, Emperor, Bobba Fett.

It would be nice to see Mace Windu and some other Jedi in the game. Just my opinion on it though.

I just picked up Call of Duty: World at War. I know it's really old and I am really behind, but it was such a great game and I couldn't believe that it wasn't in my library I had to buy it when it went on sale. So I've been just playing the campaign a bit here and there. Really loving it so far :D

Gotta say that some of the older games are way better and fun, Like I love to play BF2 then the other BF series. So if you have finished the game will you still play it for hours over again?

My last gaming purchase was a pre-order of No Man's Sky.

 

I personally really look forward to seeing this game come out in June. I have been incredibly looking forward to this game and been keeping up with it very much. I plan to easily spend 100s of hours in this game if it turns out really well. I love the concept of being able to explore planets and see all forms of unique life. :)
