Also previewed is the XS2000, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 x2 external drive available in 500GB – 2TB capacities. It comes with a USB-C interface for superfast data transfers of up to 2000MB/s.

Lastly, the DC1500M comes as n update to the DC1000M and adds support for multi namespaces. The U.2 NVMe SSD is designed to support various data-intensive workloads.

“Now that CES is moving online, we have a greater opportunity to connect with new and existing tech communities around the world,” said Tony Hollingsbee, SSD business manager, Kingston EMEA. “CES is the best time to share what’s next from Kingston and we are very excited to launch our first Gen 4.0 NVMe SSDs as well as an external drive this year.
