Fast storage speeds are probably not all that interesting nowadays. We have all sorts of fast storage, all the way up to 7000MB/s and beyond, but, definitely not this small. Kingston has just announced the Kingston XS2000 Portable SSD and DataTraveler Max flash drive, for those who want their fast storage, and want to be able to slip it into their pockets at a moment’s notice.

The Kingston XS2000 Portable SSD is barely larger than a USB thumb drive, but Kingston decided to give it a USB-C interface for flexibility. Thanks to the USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 protocol, the Kingston XS2000 Portable SSD can deliver read and write speeds of up to 2000MB/s. To ensure that your data is safe, the drive is rated IP55 for ingress protection, with a removable rubber sleeve that further enhances its durability.

You can get the Kingston XS2000 Portable SSD in capacities ranging up to 2TB with 5-year warranties. Pricing and availability in Malaysia is still unknown, but you can probably expect such great storage to come with great price tags as well.

Kingston DataTraveler Max flash drive

The Kingston DataTraveler Max builds upon the impressive range of high-end USB thumb drives, with the Kingston DataTraveler Max promising up to 1000MB/s read and 900MB/s write, which makes it one of the fastest USB drives on the market, and is probably the only one to be able to achieve such speeds while being barely larger than your average USB thumb drive.

The Kingston DataTraveler Max connects via USB 3.2 Gen2, with a retracting USB-C connector that means you don’t have to worry about losing the USB cap. It is available in capacities ranging up to 1TB, which is once again really impressive when you see just how small it is.

Pokdepinion: It’s quite amazing how fast thumb drives are nowadays, when I am still using USB 2.0 drives that write at less than 10MB/s regularly…
