Kingston KC1000 SSDs Are Equipped With the PCIe 3.0 x4 Interface and Support the NVMe Protocol

The Kingston Company has announced the release of KC1000 solid-state drives, which are equipped with the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface and support the latest NVMe protocol. These products feature the MLC NAND flash memory and the Phison PS5007-E7 controller.



The KC1000 sequential read speed achieves 2,700 MB/sec; and the ultimate sequential write velocity is 900 MB/sec with the smallest capacity model and 1,600 MB/sec with other samples. The novelty supplies up to 290,000 IOPS. During the period of service Kingston solid-state disks, being available in 240, 480 and 960 GB, endure 300, 550 and 1000 TB of data respectively. In addition, we should remark, the SSD provides enhanced endurance and power saving.


Delivering of this M.2 2280 type device starts in the middle of June. The cost is unveiled yet, however, it is reported, that specialties are protected by a five-year warranty and intend Kingston support.

Haswell processors for laptops will consume up to 57 W, desktop - up to 100

Intel provides with three graphics levels: GT1, GT2 and GT3. Desktop processors won’t receive graphics performance higher than GT2, but mobile processors will be able to boast of with GT3 class. Support of PCI Express 3.0 for Haswell processors will be quite usual characteristics, but at the memory controller little progress is seen — yet provides dual-channel DDR3-1600.



By energy consumption Haswell desktop versions will be divided into models with values of 35, 45, 65 and 95 watts of TDP level. For mobile processors the values are ​​37, 47 and 57 W. Finally, ultra book processors with built-in system logic will be filled by TDP level not more than 15 watts. It is assumed that this will enable them, among other things, be in standby mode up to 10 days without charge.


The desire of Intel to compete with AMD in terms of performance integrated in graphics processor, will add some work to companies producing cooling systems for laptops. The developers report about …
