As the new era of consumer computing begins with the help of Intel’s latest CPU and platform, Kingston has followed up with a couple of new products of both volatile and non-volatile memory.
As one of the most affordable entry-level series within Kingston’s portfolio, the ValueRAM line of products has always been budget builder’s best friend in terms of tech accessibility with the best value while not neglecting build quality and essential features. Packing all the necessary components like Power Management Integrated Circuits (PMIC) and on-die ECC, these are tested to meet the JEDEC standards to make sure they are performed as expected. Despite DDR5 definitely being more expensive than DDR4, the ValueRAM DDR5 could be the stepping stone to normalizing the technology in the coming years.
On the other hand, the KC3000 leverages the market’s latest Gen4x4 NVMe controller to bring you read and write speeds of up to 7.0GBps with capacities starting from 512GB and all the way up to 4TB that covers probably most of the computing spectrum from laptops to gaming desktops and even flash-based NAS. Built with high-density 3D TCL NAND housed in an M.2 2280 form factor shrouded over by a low profile graphene aluminum heat spreader, the KC3000 is capable of delivering blazing access speed while staying relatively cool with minimum thermal throttling.
The Kingston ValueRAM DDR5 is currently shipping globally in either single modules or kits of 2 at 16GB per stick and a rated frequency of 4800MHz while the KC3000 PCIe 4.0 SSD has capacities of 512GB, 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB. Yet, local pricing is still currently unknown at the time being.
