Kingston introduces new non-binary memories and the XS1000 SSD

We continue with the review of the most interesting announcements of Computex 2023 , to look now at several of the novelties that are added to the Kingston catalog, a brand that traditionally (and correctly, of course) we usually associate both with RAM memory and with memory supports. storage, that is, to some essential components for any type of computer, whether desktop or laptop (let us remember that, precisely, these are the two types of component that can be replaced, by the user, in many laptop computers).

Thus, we expected that Kingston’s presence at Computex 2023 would bring us news from the brand in this regard and, indeed, it has. Some of them are aimed at the professional market, but among the announcements we also find news aimed at the consumer market and, therefore, we are more interested in MuyComputer. So, although we still do not know all the details of these new solutions that will be added to Kingston’s product catalog, let’s see what they have told us at the fair.

First of all, Kingston has announced the update of its popular and well-known DR5 Fury Renegade RGB memories , with new kits that, as the main novelty, make the leap to the non-binary memory format , something that we have already begun to see in recent times and that seems to be finding a very good fit both among PC manufacturers and assemblers, as well as end users when it comes to assembling their own equipment or updating current ones.

In case you don’t know what it is, the concept of non-binary memory refers to modules whose capacity is not a power of 2 , which has been the norm for decades. As you know, the traditional jumps have been 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, etc. However, with the proposal posed by non-binary memory, we can find 24 or 48 gigabyte kits, to give an example (in fact, one of the kits that will be included in the Kingston catalog is precisely 48 gigabytes). Thanks to the popularization of non-binary memories, the choice of users grows substantially.

On the other hand, the brand has also announced its Kingston XS1000, an external SSD that will hit the market during the third quarter of this year and that promises a maximum sequential read and write performance of 1,000 MB/s. For this purpose it uses USB 3.2 and will be available in capacities of one and two terabytes.

And not forgetting external storage, we also look at the FURY Renegade PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD , which boasts the performance reputation associated with the brand’s Renegade products. It will offer sequential read and write performance of up to 7,300 and 7,000 MB/s, respectively, and will be available in capacities of up to four terabytes.
