A2000 (512Gb) produced by Kingston may work on previous bus standard that is twice slower than PCIe 4.0. The sequential write speed is 2000 Mbps, that is average value for this computer expansion bus standard. The Internal SSD can write 300 TBW, that is bad against nearest competitors. After evaluating all the facts, Kingston A2000 512Gb has more minuses and we highly do not recommend to purchase it.
