The Ghost Tree SSD is one of Kingston’s products for 2021. The product has up to 4 TB of space and brings a PCIe 4.0 interface, more recent, promising speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s in reading and writing. This should mean an interesting option for content producers, 3D designers, or even gamers, performing super-fast file transfers. Announced at CES 2021, the component did not have its price disclosed but should reach stores in the second half of the year.
Another important new feature for 2021 is the portable SSD XS2000, which comes with a USB-C connection. Kingston stated that the device can be a storage alternative when running games in 4K on new generation consoles such as Playstation 5 (PS5) and Xbox Series X|S.
The SSD models to be released on the Ghost Tree series have storage options from 1 to 4 TB and work with eight channels. Kingston has not indicated more technical details about the hardware, but its initial specifications position the product as very interesting especially for the gamer public.
The information disclosed by the model is restricted to PCIe 4.0, the highlight of the product line. This makes the SSD capable of reaching speeds of up to 7000 MB/s, allowing fast data transmission between PC and Ghost Tree storage.
The portable option XS2000 promises transfer rates of up to 2,000 MB/s via a USB-C connection. Accessories of this type can be interesting to run games on newer consoles, ensuring greater storage space and having enough capacity for a 4K resolution display on compatible devices. The model comes in 500 GB or 1 TB.
Other branded devices are guaranteed for 2021, such as SSDs NV, with PCIe 3.0, NVMe protocol and 2 TB of storage, and DC1500M, also of NVMe protocol, and that promises to be ideal for more demanding tasks. The products have not yet had prices disclosed, but the forecast is that they reach the market before the middle of the year.
