Kingston has revealed the Workflow Station and Readers alongside some of its upcoming NVMe SSDs at CES 2021.
The Workflow Station and Readers spell freedom for creators to customize a file offload set up to transfer all the video, photos, and audio all at once. Tackle high-resolution multi-cam shoot with portable audio recorders or filming B-Roll with drones and GoPros in 4K or even 8K all through the USB mini-hub, SD, and microSD readers. Users can also bring it on the go and connect to any laptops through USB-C.
There are new end-user and data center focused U.2 NVMe drives for this year such as Ghost Tree, a PCIe 4.0 drive capable of achieving 7GBps read and write, new NV series focused on entry-level PCIe 3.0 drives, XS2000 USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 external drives with transfers speed up 2GBps and DC1500M U.2 for data centers to support data-intensive workloads such as cloud computing, web hosting and virtual infrastructures.
With cheaper and better NVMe SSDs have become available, I do hope that PCIe 4.0 drives will become mainstream faster so I can grab one myself for an upgrade without hurting my wallet too much.
