Kingston will soon release its first consumer SSD with a PCIe 4.0 interface. The Kingston KC3000 appears to be the ghost tree shown at CES 2021 earlier this year. The Phison-E18 is used as a controller in combination with tlc-nand. It is not known if there is a cache there, but it seems plausible in this class.

Power consumption of up to 10.2 watts requires a cooling solution, Kingston does this in the form of a graphene sticker. Total Bytes Written or TBW is 800 times the storage space of the disk in question and therefore ranges from 400 to 3,200 terabytes. The KC3000 will be officially launched on October 25, the price is still unknown. The manufacturer’s warranty should last for five years.
