Computer storage is evolving

Techstination feature for Friday, July 12, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     Computer storage has been evolving….from traditional hard drives with spinning disks, to solid state drives using SATA connections or SSDs….and now to what are called  PCIe NVME drives.      Kingston Technology will be launching its new A2000 drive this summer and says the company’s David Leong…

“NVME uses a little bit more power than SATA and it gives off more heat than SATA SSDs.  So with an A2000, it is single sided, meaning the controller and the chips are all on one side, so it’s super thin, goes up to a terabyte and it’s a little bit slower than its older cousin the KC2000.  It’s perfect for laptops.”

And it will still be considerably faster than SATA drives.   What it means for us consumers is more storage in smaller spaces.
