Kingston Digital Europe Co. LLP, the flash memory arm of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today introduced the KC3000, the next-generation PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD for desktop and laptop computers. The KC3000 SSD offers next-level performance using the latest Gen 4x4 NVMe controller and 3D TLC NAND, ideal for advanced users who need the highest speeds on the market.
Utilizing the benefits of Gen4 technology, the KC3000 delivers speeds of up to 7.0000 / 7,000MB / s read / write, top performance, and full capacity of up to 4096 GB for optimal storage. Users can track demanding workloads and experience better performance in software applications for 3D rendering and creation of 4K + content, by simply upgrading system memory. The KC3000 is built using high-density 3D TLC NAND technology, housed in the industry-standard M.2 2280 format that allows users to take advantage of PCIe 4.0 speeds and store even more data. Combining performance and durability, the KC3000 is enhanced with a low-profile graphene aluminum heat exchanger, for efficient cooling of your drive during intense workloads.
"With the rise of high-data applications, consumers are demanding high-performance, high-capacity solutions," said Tony Hollingsbee, SSD's business director, Kingston EMEA. "By using the new generation of PCIe 4.0 technology in our KC3000, we can deliver fast and reliable storage that meets the needs of a wide range of consumers in the market."
The KC3000 is currently available in 512GB, 1024GB, 2048GB and 4096GB2 capacities. The KC3000 is also supported with a limited five-year warranty4 and free technical support. For more information, visit kingston.com.
