Style:With Half-Height, Half-Length adapter Â |Â Capacity:240GB 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 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 2700MB/s1. 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 960GB2, and the KC1000 is backed by a limited five-year warranty3 and legendary Kingston support.
