Kingston 'Ghost Tree' NVMe M.2 SSD promises a speed revolution


Memory manufacturer Kingston today unveiled their latest PCIe 4.0 internal M.2 SSD, as well as a host of new releases in the world of external memory and SSD drives.

NVMe M.2 internal, known only as Ghost Tree, currently offers stunning new heights of speed in PCIe 4.0 specifications - proposed maximum productivity of 7,000 Mbps for reading and writing. This will make it the fastest PCIe 4.0 drive we've seen so far, pushing the eight bandwidth channels to peak performance in theory.

So far the fastest Kingston SSD drive we've tested is Kingston KC2000. It's a very good drive in principle, but as a PCIe 3.0x4, reaching the maximum speeds that Kingston Ghost Tree promises are impossible.

Kingston Hard SSD is also made from external SSD XS2000. The XS2000 will use a fairly rare USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 connection standard, allowing data transfer up to 2500 Mbps. It is scheduled to be launched with a variety of storage capacities ranging from 500GB to 2TB.

The Kingston ad is the first appearance of the latest server-side drive DC1500M. It serves as a successor to Kingston's DC1000M U.2 NVMe SSD and will support multiple spaces at launch.
