Kingston Digital Inc. will be showing off its upcoming DCU1000 2.5-inch U.2 NVMe PCIe SSD at Flash Memory Summit 2017. Kingston and its partners will be demonstrating the performance capabilities of the DCU1000 storage device, which is said to be the fastest NVMe SSD for the U.2 form factor in the industry. Demonstrations at the event will highlight all sorts of DCU1000 configurations including one that supports multi-million IOPS from a single server solution. "With the introduction of DCU1000, we are proud that Kingston has developed the industry’s most complete family of data performance solutions... Read more...
Kingston is looking to strut its stuff in the data center arena with the arrival of the new DCP1000 family of PCIe SSDs. The storage company says that it is targeting the SSDs for use in online transaction processing (OLTP), database optimization, and virtual desktop infrastructure among other tasks required by enterprise customers. The DCP1000 manages to combine four 8-channel controllers together into a single SSD that is capable of delivering sequential read speeds of up to 6800 MB/sec. Yes, you heard that correctly! Maximum sequential writes come in at 6,000 MB/sec, random 4K reads surpass... Read more...
At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Kingston turned quite a few heads when it announced the newest member of its DataTraveler Ultimate GT flash drive family, which is available in capacities up to 2TB. This new 2GB SKU makes it the world’s largest capacity USB flash drive. Today, Kingston announced that the flash drive is now shipping to customers. Given that this is a flash drive, it isn’t exactly the sexiest piece of kit that we get to cover on a daily basis, but we can’t help but be impressed by the ability to store up to 70 hours of 4K footage on a device that fits in your pocket.

Do you need to store documents, pictures, videos, and a partridge in a pear tree? Kingston’s latest flash drive, the 2TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT, is all you need and more given that it is the largest USB flash drive in the world. Jean Wong, Flash business manager, remarked, “At Kingston, we push the limits of what’s possible. With the DataTraveler Ultimate GT, we empower users to increase their data storage mobility in a highly manageable form factor. This is a terrific follow up to our 1TB drive released in 2013 and by doubling the capacity, users can store and carry even larger amounts... Read more...
Did you know that not having the right headphones could mean the difference between enjoying well-earned glory and being on the wrong side of an good ol' tea-bagging? Tired of having to get your butt-shake on to pay for a worthy set of cans? If you answer "yes" to either of those, then you're missing out on a wealth of wisdom that Kingston's HyperX division provides in its latest ad promoting the company's Cloud Stinger gaming headset. In the ad, the presenter slips into his chair of "overcompensation" and tells the tales of having to twerk on his livestream -- and perhaps even worse, sell off... Read more...
If you're planning to build a new system around one of Intel's new Skylake processors, you might as well go the distance and pick up a Z170-chipset motherboard that supports DDR4 memory. You'll find that there are plenty of memory kits to choose from, including Kingston Technology's brand new HyperX Savage. With a name like "Savage," you better bring fast speeds and aggressive timings, and that's exactly what Kingston does here. The HyperX Savage DDR4 line is available in speeds up to 3,000MHz with built-in XMP-ready profiles optimized for Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. "We are excited to... Read more...
Solid State Drives continue to be one of the more sought after (and effective) upgrades for both desktop and mobile systems. But as drives have matured, and newer generations have been released, the bandwidth limitations of the legacy SATA interface have become increasingly more apparent. Even relatively affordable, mainstream solid state drives are bumping into the SATA bandwidth limit right alongside more expensive flagship drives, which makes it difficult to differentiate between them based on performance alone.The answer to eliminating the bandwidth limitations of the SATA interface is PCI...

At this point, we've pretty much seen what the best and fastest SATA 6Gbps-based solid state drives can offer -- transfer rates just shy of 600Mb/s. So what's the solution for even faster performance? To tap into the PCIe bus, of course! Enter Kingston's blazing fast HyperX Predator, an M.2 form factor SSD featuring a PCIe Gen 2.0 x4 interface. This 'Marvell-ous' piece of hardware sports a Marvell 88SS9293 controller and is capable of hitting read and write speeds of up to 1,400MB/s and 1,000MB/s, respectively. Yeah, it's like that. These are best case scenarios, of course, and those metrics apply... Read more...
Whether you're in need of a super-fast solid-state drive, a speedy microSD card, or an ultra-secure thumb drive, Kingston has got you covered at this year's CES. I think the "super-fast" SSD I mentioned will whet the most appetites, so let's start off with a look at that one. Called HyperX Predator, Kingston's latest and greatest SSD is PCIe-based in order to deliver some incredible performance. 1,400MB/s read and 1,000MB/s write to be exact. 240GB and 480GB versions of the drive will be available soon, with a 960GB version to come towards the end of Q1 or early Q2. Further... Read more...

These are the days of form factors. The PC market is changing rapidly as tablets supplant some laptops, new players such as the Chromebook disrupt the old WIntel model, and innovations in processors and graphics allow for ever-smaller PCs such as Intel’s NUC. Here’s a new one for you: a tiny NUC-style PC that doubles as a video projector. It's an interesting combination and that’s we have for you today with the Gigabyte Brix Projector. The little PC ships as a barebones unit without storage or memory, but it actually has some solid specs under its diminutive hood and capabilities... Read more...
