Kingston KC3000: NVME SSD with speeds up to 7000MB / s and cuts up to 4TB

Kingston KC3000

Kingston has announced and made available, for now through the official channels, the new SSD PCie 4.0 NVMe M.2 of the Kingston KC3000 series, consisting of four denominations ranging from 512 GB up to 4096 GB and designed to guarantee high-end performance they arrive from 7000 MB / s of transfer speed in both sequential read and sequential write.

Only the 2TB and 4TB drives get 7000MB / s in sequential write, while the 512GB drive stops at 3900MB / s and the 1TB drive gets to 6000MB / s, but all reach 7000 MB / s in sequential reading thanks to the combination of a latest generation Phison PS5018-E18 NVMe 4x4 controller and 176-layer 3D TLC NAND memory. It also includes a 4 TB cut that is missing from the lineup of similar products from other manufacturers. detail, includes random read and write speeds of up to 1,000,000 IOPS, an integrated aluminum / graphene heatsink, 5-year limited warranty with free technical support, 400TB to 3200TB rewrite depending on cut and SLC cache to ensure sustained performance.
