Kingston DCP1000 NVMe PCIe SSD

Published by


Kingston announced the general availability (GA) of its DCP1000 NVMe PCIe SSD in the European marketplace. The company will demonstrate the performance capabilities of the DCP1000, the industry’s fastest NVMe SSD for the Half Height Half Length PCIe form factor.

These include accelerating the complete Adobe Creative Cloud 2017 Suite of applications; a 60 frame-per-second (FPS) 4K streaming video demonstration with Bluefish444; real-time color grading with 4K resolution video and higher with demonstration partners Eizo and Marquis Technologies; and several other deployments showcasing the consistent, industry-leading data acceleration capabilities of the Kingston DCP1000, regardless of use case.

“We are proud to announce the availability of the DCP1000 in the European territories and to demonstrate the data performance of our NVMe PCIe solution to media & entertainment (M&E) professionals at IBC this year,” said Christoph Bader, B2B Strategic Marketing Manager, Kingston. “Professionals, from digital content generation to live broadcast, rely on ultra-fast data to accomplish their goals and remain competitive in a saturated media landscape, and the DCP1000 NVMe solid-state solution delivers industry-leading data acceleration alongside Kingston’s award-winning product reliability and service.”

The M2s unit will become available in 800, 1600 and 3200 GB models. The NAND type used is MLC. The 1600 GB model would be capable of 1.1 million IOPS for reads and 200K IOPS for writes. It has a TBW value of 1500TB and double that for the 3.2TB version.

Kingston’s DCP1000 solid-state drive delivers up to 1.25 million IOPS from a single device, with ultra-low transactional latency and high throughput, making it ideal for data centers requiring extreme performance. It features ultra-fast NVMe PCIe Gen 3.0 x8, speeds of 7GB/s and hardware-based pFail. DCP1000 has flexible drive topology and supports flexible software RAID capability to save on redundant hardware costs.

It supports 800GB to 3.2TB1 from a single HHHL card and can be optimized for performance or redundancy, and a single card can be configured for RAID via the host software. It’s fast and economical to deploy, using native in-box NVMe drivers specifically built for PCIe-attached SSDs, and it’s plug-and-play with all major operating systems. It has UEFI boot support and low overhead architecture. In addition to its standard electrolytic capacitor pFail design, DCP1000’s enterprise-class features include next-gen ECC data protection and end-toend data path protection.

The units will get 5 years warrenty, prices have not been mentioned.
