Kingston reveals the KC3000, a new PCIe 4.0 NVMe solid state disk that is offered in capacities of 512GB to 4TB. The disk uses 3D TLC NAND flash memory and has the Phison E18 controller. Performance depends on the amount of NAND flash memory, the 2TB and 4TB versions are the fastest, they achieve read speeds of up to 7000MB/s and write speeds of up to 7000MB/s. The random 4K read/write IOPS of the 2TB and 4TB versions is 1 million IOPS.
Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced KC3000, its next generation PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD for desktop and laptop PCs. KC3000 SSD offers next-level performance using the latest Gen 4x4 NVMe controller and 3D TLC NAND ideal for power users who require the fastest speeds on the market.

“With the rise of data-heavy applications, consumers are demanding high performance solutions and high capacities to match”

By leveraging Gen4 technology, KC3000 delivers speeds up to 7,0000/7,000MB/s read/write1 of blazing-fast performance and full capacities up to 4096GB2 for optimal storage. Users can keep up with demanding workloads and experience better performance with software applications such as 3D rendering and 4K+ content creation by upgrading the systems storage. KC3000 is built with high-density 3D TLC NAND housed in the industry standard M.2 2280 form factor to store even more and enable users to take advantage of PCIe 4.0 speeds. With the combination of performance and endurance, KC3000 is reinforced with a low profile, graphene aluminum heat spreader to effectively disperse heat and keep your drive cool during intensive workloads.
