Kingston announces a series of NVME consumer SSDs. The KC1000 SSDs are equipped with 15nm MLC Nand memory from Toshiba, a Phison controller and are available in variants of 240GB, 480GB and 960GB.
According to Kingston, the KC1000 SSDs achieve a sequential read speed of 2700MB/s and the sequential write speed is up to 1600MB/s for the largest version. The SSDs use the Phison PS5007-E7 controller, which is also included in the Corsair MP500-nvme SSDs.
Kingston has long supplied NVME SSDs under its HyperX brand; the KC1000 models are the first NVME SSDs the company sells to consumers under its own name. The m2 SSDs can be purchased separately, or in combination with a half height pcie plug-in card. The KC1000 SSDs should be available by mid-June. Kingston has not disclosed recommended retail prices.
