Kingston Shows off Business SF-2281 SSD & 64GB Sandy Bridge Eby Anand Lal Shimpi on September 13, 2011 11:45 PM EST
I dropped by Kingston's booth at the IDF tech showcase to check out two things this evening: Kingston's SSDNow KC100 and another Sandy Bridge E demo. The KC100 is another SF-2281 SSD but aimed at business users with a 5-year warranty instead of the 3-year warranty that comes on the HyperX. Performance should be identical to the HyperX. SandForce has a new firmware revision that is in testing now (3.30) which should fix some issues users have been having, but no word on whether or not it'll address all issues at this point.
Kingston also populated a Sandy Bridge E motherboard with 8 x 8GB DIMMs just to show what's possible with Intel's next high-end enthusiast platform.
