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.

How long do you spend gaming every day?

Recommended Posts

Some people spend hours each day playing video games and others just tap away on their phones while waiting for the bus. How long do you spend gaming every day or week? I personally only play a bit; between 1 to 3 hours per day, but somedays I don't play at all. What about you?

Well, since Ark just had a free weekend, steam tells me I put 15 hours in to it over the course of two days. And one of those days I only put an hour in.

For small children reading this, don't read any further.......

I spend about 5-7 hours gaming every single day and have done for the past 11 years.
I am immune to game addiction due to this xD and no problems with my bodies mental and physical state.
Lucky me :D

I play for about 2 or so hours on a weekend and for about half an hour or so on a weekday. I'm usually busy with homework and performing forum duties unfortunately. :/

I spend very little time playing games. I am either working or taking care of my kids. And when I am not doing those I am on my computer working on one of my various websites.

Either a lot of time or none at all.

What do I mean?  Well basically, if I play any game at all, I'll probably keep playing for at least four or so hours, likely more.  However at the moment I find it difficult to be inspired to start or continue playing anything, so I end up hardly playing video games in general.

Hope that makes sense.

Not half as much as I used to. I remember a time when I used to spend around 7 - 8 hours online gaming sometimes more when I owned a clan and had a group of people I used to game with however life changes and you don't always have as much time as you used to. I do miss spending that amount of time gaming and the friends I used to game with but I will always have the memories.

It really varies by day. When I actually do game in a day I probably spend close to 2 hours, but it's happening more and more rarely as time progresses and other responsibilities creep in.

On days that I have to work, I'm lucky if I get to spend an hour on gaming.  If I don't have to go to work, then I can spend a lot more time on gaming because there are no obligations from stopping me.

Honestly I don't play everyday. I tend to go in spurts where I'll play tons and then I just stop. But when I get into one of those modes it can range from a half hour to a couple hours or more.
