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.

Do you like heavy metal?

Recommended Posts

Some heavy metal I can listen to but not all of it.  Twisted Sister is good.  I can't listen to the kind where it sounds like they are growling into the microphone.  If I wanted to listen to growling, I can stay home and listen to my dog growl at me.

I'm not the biggest metal fan. I do listen to some artists that veer into the world of metal such as Umphrey's McGee, but they do so within extended jams that don't really hold through as an overarching 'metal band'. I can do with it, but just a pinch! :D

My main genre for sure. I enjoy classics, like Black Sabbath, Dio, Iron Maiden, Metallica, etc. And newer stuff like Tremonti, In Flames, Avenged Sevenfold, Unparalleled Height and Trivium.

Love it. Indeed I am more attracted to punk but hey, it's all good if you have rock, metal or punk by your side :D  or at least that's how I see things xD

This is certainly the right Topic for me! I really like guitar music generally, but Hard Rock and Heavy sound the most. I consider the music from second half of 70's and first half of 80's, the best part in Modern Music History. From AC/DC, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep ... 'till Iron Maiden, MotorHead, Metallica ... If I would have to vote, Metallica would probably be my choise. 

I mean, now when I'm much older, I like many music genres. But that rough Guitar sound ...I just love it!

Not a huge fan of metal, more like a rock fan (bands like Muse). Though I definitely like some songs from the bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden etc. Actually, I went to their concert this year and really enjoyed it.

I do enjoy heavy metal and my girlfriend is really into it. I don't listen to it as much as I use to but it's still cool. Zao would probably be my favorite metal band.
