Kingston Announces the DCP-1000 PCI-Express NVMe SSD

Kingston today announced the DCP-1000 line of high-performance PCI-Express SSDs, targeted at enterprises, particularly at data-centers with high bandwidth demands, the drives come in the half-height add-on card form-factor, and take feature a PCI-Express 3.0 x8 host interface (64 Gbps), and takes advantage of the NVMe protcol. It puts this interface bandwidth to good use, belting out sequential transfer rates in excess of 6,800 MB/s. The drive comes in capacities of 800 GB, 1600 GB, and 3200 GB.

All three models offer sequential read speeds of up to 6,800 MB/s. The 800 GB variant writes at speeds of up to 5,000 MB/s, while the other two models write at up to 6,000 MB/s. The 4K random access performance of the 800 GB variant is 900,000/145,000 IOPS (reads/writes); with the 1600 GB variant belting out 1,100,000/200,000 IOPS, and the 3200 GB variant 1,000,000/180,000 IOPS. The drives come with full-length heatsinks cooling the MLC NAND flash chips and controller; and a bank of capacitors that provide power-outage data-loss mitigation.

The buzz is that they are also working on a high end consumer variation of this card. Kingston want to blow away the enthusiast market with the first PCIe x8 card but it won't surface until late Q3 / early Q4 2017.

Question is if it is worth it, can not even imagine the price tag. To much for me anyways.

I hope Samsung has something new, powerful and less pricey for us at their summit in Q4 or if they are only going for a refresh this year. Seams that they are ahead of the pack and Intel Optane only enters 16/32GB cache business for consumers this year so they have no real threat to compete against 2017 as it look like now.
