Kingston announces next-gen KC3000 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD


Kingston Digital has announced its KC3000 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD, which the company says leverages Gen4 technology delivering speeds of up to 7,0000/7,000MB/s read/write.

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

By upgrading their system’s storage, users can keep up with demanding workloads and experience better performance with software applications such as 3D rendering and 4K+ content creation. KC3000 was 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.
