As a major contender in the flash-based storage devices arena, Kingston is one name which evokes a sense of trust, given the brand’s impressive take in memory modules, flash drives and performance enhanced Solid State Drives (SSD).
But you already knew that.
However, did you get to hear about Kingston’s HyperX 3K SSD? If you haven’t, here’s the HyperX 3K in a nutshell.
The HyperX 3K – With SATA Rev 3.0-performance speeds
As an SSD, the HyperX 3K is classified as a “budget class” SSD, with its second gen SandForce controller, and its 3000 program-erase cycle lifespan.
Capable of delivering faster and more increased frames per second (FPS) ratings from graphically enhanced game options, the 3K is also built for more dynamic multimedia tasks like the editing of multimedia files, from videos to audio.
With SATA Rev 3.0 performance speeds, the 3K can, at optimum configurations, go as fast as 555Mb/second (sequential reads), with SandForce DuraClass technologies which ensures it the best of data integrity and protection figures.
Also featuring advanced wear-leveling technologies, user configurable over provisioning, and with shock-proof/anti-drop jarring features (handy if used in mobile computer rigs), the 3K also comes with support for S.M.A.R.T. technologies.
With TRIM, the 3K is enhanced for device wear leveling, which pretty much eliminates the merge operation for deleted data blocks. Available in 90 GB, 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB variants, the 3K is not only an impressive SSD in terms of performance, but also gives gamers, hobbyist of otherwise, options in getting an performance-driven SSD that fits well with budgets and expectations.
Give the 3K a go if an SSD is what your gaming rig is in need of.
