Kingston now offers high speed PCIe SSD

Kingston’s HyperX division has announced the HyperX Predator PCIe line of solid-state drives. The new line will be high-end and will offer much improved performance when compared to many other SSD lines by being the performance leader in the HyperX line of solid-state drives.

“HyperX is happy to soon unleash its fastest HyperX SSD to date. The PCIe form factor showcases extreme speeds while processing both compressed and uncompressed data,” said Lawrence Yang, business manager, HyperX. “We worked closely with Marvell to engineer this HyperX Predator PCIe SSD for higher performance and it more than delivers through its ultra-responsive multi-tasking and faster system performance.”

The new Kingston SSD line offers three models with capacities of 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB. Thanks to the usage of the Marvell 88SS9293 memory controller and the used PCIe 2.0 x4 interface, the SSDs reach 1400 MB/sec of read speed and 1000 MB/sec of write speed. The solid-state drives come in the M.2 form factor and ensure next generation platform support. An optional half-weight, half-length (HHHL) adapter is also available for many existing motherboards with no M.2 socket installed.

“As enthusiast desktop users and datacenter customers seek greater performance to break through 6Gb/s SATA limitation, Marvell’s X4-lane PCIe SSD Controller 88SS9293 provides lightning fast, next-generation SSD performance,” said Mike Chen, director of product marketing, Storage BU, Marvell. “We are proud to work with the HyperX team to deliver higher bandwidth and throughput for client systems and datacenter customers seeking to maximize storage performance.”

The 240 GB and 480 GB models will be available in February 2015 with the 960 GB model arriving sometime in Q1/Q2 2015. All drives also come with a 3-year warranty but there is no word on pricing as of now.
