The KC1000 NVMe PCIe SSD is over twice faster than SATA-based SSDs and over 40x faster than a 7200RPM hard-disk drive. Built for the power user, the KC1000 provides low-latency performance boost and solutions for resource-demanding applications including high-resolution video editing, data visualization, gaming, and other data intensive workload environments.

Also, the KC1000 delivers up to 290,000 IOPS and will ship in mid-June in 240GB, 480GB, and 960GB capacities. The high-performance SSD supports the PCIe Gen3 x4 interface and the latest NVMe protocol. It can provide accelerated boot and load speeds and increases sequential read/write performance, as well as offering improved endurance and energy efficiency.
