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.

    GTA V PC Modding

    t still feels like yesterday when GTA IV came out on PC on 3rd December 2008 along with the endlessly entertaining mods that followed suite, Iron Man and even WatchDogs just to name some of the most popular ones. GTA V was released September 2013 and one of the first topics of discussion was how crazy modders were going to go with this game. Fast Forward 19 months and the PC version of possibly one of the greatest games ever made (definitely in my books) is finally released.

    GTA V PC Modding has begun.

    It still feels like yesterday when GTA IV came out on PC on 3rd December 2008 along with the endlessly entertaining mods that followed suite, Iron Man and even WatchDogs just to name some of the most popular ones. GTA V was released September 2013 and one of the first topics of discussion was how crazy modders were going to go with this game. Fast Forward 19 months and the PC version of possibly one of the greatest games ever made (definitely in my books) is finally released.

    We’ve had to sit through a number of delays to finally get here but it was worth it. The PC version of GTA V is exquisite and exceptionally produced to take full advantage of current gen PC’s. That $3000 system has been waiting for a game like GTA V. With so many disappointing PC titles that simply turned out to be poorly developed console ports; Rockstar showed us there still is hope for PC gamers.

    But let’s talk about the mods, that is why we are here after all and already there’s a few cool stuff out there that most will be quite happy about. I’ve personally tested and play with a few of these mods so they do work quite well and it was something I was hoping for ever since I first installed the game on the PS3.

    #1 – Script Hook V

    Script Hook is the library that lets you load up native functions in custom plugin files. This works and is very similar to the ‘Simple Trainer’ plugin from GTA IV that I spent hours using. It does need a little bit more GUI work but overall it does pretty much everything you could ask for. (The script hook comes built-in with the trainer).

    From simple things like changing the weather, time of day and player specific options to more complex things that you normally would never encounter in regular play like spawning the Cargo Plane (the gigantic plane from one of Trevor’s missions).

    #2 – LinGon Trainer

    One of the first (if not the first) trainers for the PC version of GTA V. It loads separately in it’s own .exe and adds some basic yet useful trainer options to the game. It’s simple, it works and comes in hand quite a bit!

    For now that’s all. I know there’s a few more others out there but for now let’s start off with these two popular ones!
