NVMe PCIe and M.2 SSD for Desktop Workstation – KC1000 – Kingston Technology

http://www.kingston.com/us/ssd/consumer/SKC1000 Kingston’s KC1000 Solid-state Drive is a high-performance PCIe NVMe™ solution that is over 2x faster than SATA-based SSDs and 40x faster than a 7200RPM hard-disk drive*. Using a PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 interface and an 8-channel Phison PS5007-E7 controller, this drive features 4 cores and 2x the DRAM to help power users blaze through even the toughest projects with high-speed data transfers of up to 2700MB/s*.

KC1000 uses native OS drivers and is NVMe 1.2 compliant which allows users to take full advantage of the high throughput, IOPS and low latency that is available to systems that support NVMe. This protocol was designed specifically to support Flash-based storage versus SATA which was developed for traditional spinning disks. It removes performance bottlenecks and allows the system instant access to the device once the SSD is installed.

KC1000 is easily installed in either a standard M.2 or PCI Express socket using the M.2 2280 or the half-height, half-length add-in card for greater design-in flexibility when used by system builders. There is a range of capacities available from
240GB to 960GB**, and the KC1000 is backed by a limited five-year warranty*** and legendary Kingston support.

* Based on “out-of-box performance” using a SATA Rev 3.0 / PCIe 3.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software, and usage. IOMETER Random 4K Read/Write is based on 8GB partition.

** Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston’s Flash Memory Guide at Kingston.com/flashguide.

*** Limited warranty based on 5 years or “SSD Life Remaining” which can be found using the Kingston SSD Manager (Kingston.com/SSDManager). A new, unused product will show a wear indicator value of one hundred (100), whereas a product that has reached its endurance limit of program erase cycles will show a wear indicator value of one (1). See Kingston.com/wa for details.
