One of the leaders in all things memory-related is Kingston, and today has several new products to introduce at CES. Kingston has a new PCIe SSD, a secure USB flash drive, and a microSD card suitable for 4K and HD videos. The PCIe SSD is the HyperX Predator, and when it arrives next month will be the fastest PCIe drive in the company's lineup. The HyperX Predator will come in 240 or 480GB capacities when it arrives, with a 960GB model expected a bit later on. As for the speed, well it is capable of read speeds of 1400MB/s and write speeds of 1000MB/s thanks to the Marvell 88SS9293 controller. The HyperX Predator works in an M.2 PCIe slot, but also comes in a half-height, half-length adapter for motherboards without that slot.

On the flash drive side is the DataTraveler Locker+ G3, which offers hardware encryption and password protection to keep your data safe no matter what happens. The DataTraveler Locker+ G3 offers a USB 3.0 connector for read speeds of up to 135MB/s and write speeds of up to 40MB/s, with capacities of 8, 16, 32, and 64GB available. Along with the hardware encryption and password protection, the Locker+ G3 can backup data to the likes of Google Drive, Amazon S3, Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox, or Box using the included ClevX software. This way your data is always available if your drive is ever lost or stolen.

Lastly there's the microSD UHS-I Speed Class 3 (SDCA3) card, with its 90MB/s read and 80MB/s write speeds to offer fast performance when recording 4K or HD video. It can also play back recorded video without stuttering, even if it is in 4K resolution. This card comes in 16, 32, and 64GB capacities, and is water, shock/vibration, X-ray, and temperature-proof. The SDCA3 works with any device capable of reading microSDHC or microSDXC cards, and can even be used with an SD adapter to work as a full-size card.

The Kingston HyperX Predator, DataTraveler Locker+ G3, and SDCA3 did not have any prices mentioned at this time, but you can expect that information before long.
