At CES 2019 Kingston has officially revealed their A2000 and KC2000 series of NVMe SSDs, each of which delivers increased performance when compared to their last-generation counterparts. 

These performance levels are improved thanks to two factors as both new SSDs now use 64-layer 3D TLC NAND and have switched from Phison controllers to newer Silicon Motion chips. The A2000 has also moved to a PCIe 3.0 x4 configuration, allowing the NVMe SSD to access more bandwidth to offer increased transfer speeds.  

Both new SSDs will offer 256GB, 512GB and 1024GB models, with the higher-end KC2000 SSD also offering a 2048GB variant. The lower cost A2000 will offer sequential read/write speeds fo 2,000/1,500MBps while the KC2000 will offer sequential read/write speeds of 3,000/2,000MB/s. The table below details how these specifications compare to their last-generation counterparts. 

Both SSDs are expected to be available in late March or early April. Pricing information and additional specifications are set to be revealed at a later date
