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.

Tragic Words of a Syrian Mother

Recommended Posts

“There was always two types of Syrians: those who could afford to try to get to Europe and us, who could only afford to get across a land border to safety,” she told News Corp Australia, as a huge desert dust storm pounded her tent and she nursed her children, including one with a bomb shrapnel wound from the conflict.

“I have had enough and I want to go to sea to Europe like the people who sink. We will go to Turkey and find a boat.

“I know many people sink and die, but we want to try and maybe we more lucky. Many Syrian families here think like this, we have all had enough, these are difficult situations. That’s why we want out to Europe, Australia wherever, I like Switzerland.”


That's right. She's willing to risk it all, and get on a boat for a better life.
It's so profound and something no one on this forum can relate to - the fact you know the risks of getting on a boat, but you feel as though there's no other way. You have to do it.

Sure, we can rattle on about 'stopping people from getting on boats for their safety' but until we actively offer a better, safer option it's they have a shot at sea, or they and their kids are sentenced to death in their homelands.  :sad:

Unfortunately, the whole world has to deal with one of the most difficult issues. Refugees and immigrants need special treatment. United Nations has to take immediate action. In addition, the war in Syria and Iraq has to come to an end. However, USA's and Russia's interests and conflicts will never stop. That's why the war will not end sometime soon... :(

I have no pity for the people who refuse to settle in the first safe country as being a refugee means you are escaping war not trying to take advantage of the saturation for your own gains.

They are safe countries that these people can go to without even getting on a boat but a lot of these people chose to risk their lifes for financial advantage.

Refugees are people who leave their countries for safety.

Economic migrants are people who leave safe countries for financial reasons often taking advantage of free money given out by the governments.
