With the unveil of the next-generation processors, Kingston Technology, a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced the launch of KC3000, its next generation PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD for desktop and laptop PCs, and Kingston ValueRAM (KVR) DDR5 to satisfy users’ increasing storage and computing needs.

By leveraging the latest Gen4x4 NVMe controller, KC3000 delivers speeds up to 7,0000/7,000MB/s read/write1 of blazing-fast performance and full capacities up to 4096GB2 for optimal storage. Users can keep up with demanding workloads and experience better performance with software applications such as 3D rendering and 4K+ content creation by upgrading the systems storage. KC3000 is 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.

“With the rise of data-heavy applications, consumers are demanding high performance solutions and high capacities to match; by utilizing next-gen PCIe 4.0 technology with KC3000, we are able to deliver fast and reliable storage to suit the needs of a wide range of consumers in the market.” said Kingston. “We are also happy to introduce our ValueRAM DDR5 to further expand Kingston’s DDR5 offerings, bringing high performance memory with affordability.”

Designed and tested to meet JEDEC standards, Kingston ValueRAM DDR5 modules feature on-board Power Management Integrate Circuits (PMIC), which help regulate the power required by various components of the memory module and enable better power distribution, improve signal integrity, and reduce noises. The reliable and competitively priced Kingston ValueRAM DDR5 serves as the ideal choice for worry-free upgrades to DDR5 performance.

KC3000 is currently available in 512GB, 1024GB, 2048GB and 4096GB2 capacities. KC3000 is backed by a limited five-year warranty4 and free technical support. Kingston DDR5 ValueRAM is available in 16GB single modules and kits of 2, at 4800MHz speeds, backed with a lifetime warranty and free technical support. For more information visit kingston.com.

This SSD is designed for use in desktop and notebook computer workloads and is not intended for server environments.

Based on “out-of-box performance” using a PCIe 4.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software, and usage.

Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston’s Flash memory guide at kingston.com/flashguide.

3 Total Bytes Written (TBW) is derived from the JEDEC Client Workload (JESD219A).

Limited warranty based on 5 years or “Percentage Used” which can be found using the Kingston SSD Manager (Kingston.com/SSDManager). For NVMe SSDs, a new unused product will show a Percentage Used value of 0, whereas a product that reaches its warranty limit will show a Percentage Used value of greater than or equal to one hundred (100). See Kingston.com/wa for details.
