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 harddisk drive1
. 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
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.
