Marvell, Kingston Collaboration Proves Positive with Over Six Million SSD Units Shipped
  • Over 6 Million Kingston SSDs Shipped with Marvell Controllers Since 2015
  • Upcoming UV500 Series Features Latest Marvell Controller

Kingston Digital Europe Co LLP, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced over 6 million SSD units between the Kingston and HyperX lines have shipped worldwide featuring Marvell controllers. The feat was accomplished in just over two years, as the HyperX Predator PCIe SSD in February 2015 was the company’s first SSD to ship utilising a Marvell controller. Marvell’s 88SS9293 controller provides lightning fast, next generation SSD performance, making HyperX’s Predator PCIe SSD a must have for system-builders and enthusiasts.

Wanting to offer users of all levels the benefits of high performance from an SSD, Kingston released UV400, powered by Marvell’s 88SS1074 four-channel controller in May of 2016. As the product range evolves later this year, Kingston will launch the UV500 series, its first 3D NAND-enabled SSD utilising Marvell’s newest 88SS1074 full turnkey (FTK) solution. UV500 will be available in 2.5″, M.2 and mSATA form factors providing solutions for any consumer and system builder SSD needs. It is designed for mainstream client use but also has 256-bit AES encryption and TCG Opal 2.0 enabled for enterprise users as well.

“Marvell is proud of the success in our collaboration with Kingston, and is excited to be extending it with our first in-house developed FTK solution on our 88SS1074 controller,” said Nigel Alvares, VP of SSD & Enterprise Storage Marketing, Storage Group, Marvell. “Kingston’s UV500 will be able to offer industry-leading 3D NAND performance, endurance, data integrity and reliability using our third generation of NANDEdge technology, the industry’s most advanced low-density parity check (LDPC) error correction platform available, and integrated in all of our latest SATA, SAS and PCIe controllers.”

“We are happy with the work we’ve achieved with the Marvell team to deliver higher performance and quality products to our customers; and, to have reached such a mark like 6 million SSDs shipped in such a short time,” said Tony Hollingsbee, SSD Business Manager, Kingston. “We’re looking to sustain our unit growth with this next generation drive series utilising 3D NAND and Marvell’s full turnkey solution. UV500 will deliver excellent performance and reliability for both consumer and system builder users.”

Kingston will showcase its latest SSD offerings at Flash Memory Summit in Hall A-B Booth #827. Marvell can be found in Hall A-B Booth #511.
