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.

My All time favorite game depends on platform.

Mine also depends on the platform, but in general. I've always had a liking for Wario Land 4 back on the GBA.  It's a fairly simple game as far as gameplay and stuff goes, but there was a crazy amount of effort put into the level design and aesthetics (especially for the genre).

In terms of an overarching series, nothing captures quite the same 'magic' as The Sims does for me. It's had it's ups and downs, but there's just something about it that's kept me coming back year after year.

Now I'm a little bit older,ha... so I don't have much time anymore to play games often. it's my kid's "job" now.
But I was pretty much active player back in 2000's. Those years I can describe as Years when games became something more then meaning of word it's self. They became Games with capital "G".

Here are some of my best ever (order is random):

- Burnout 3: Takedown

- Super Mario Galaxy

- Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

And everlasting Gaming experience:

- MineCraft

Have to say City of Heroes was my all time favorite game.

Second would have to either be Guild Wars 2 or Call of Duty World at War.

Probably the Civilization series. I've got more hours played on that franchise than any other. I know I have at least 1,200 hrs played on Civ5 alone atm. It's an amazing franchise.
