Exceptional performance for systems with NVMe support.
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 8 cores and 2x the DRAM to help power users blaze through
even the toughest projects with high-speed data transfers of up to
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 provides the system
with 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.
- High-performance, next-generation PCIe NVMe SSD
- NVMe — Designed for SSDs, not legacy storage products
- Form factor choices to fit a wide range of systems
* Based on “out-of-box performance” using a SATA Rev. 3.0
motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and
usage. IOMETER random 4K random read/write is based on an 8GB
** Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used
for formatting and other functions and is thus 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
*** 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.
