Kingston SSD NVMe PCIe 240GB - 960GB KC1000


The Kingston KC1000 has Kingston 2 X 512MB. DRAM in their controller help to increase endurance and input/output performance.

The Kingston KC1000 960Gb due to the low density of memory chips may function without extra cooling systems. Some motherboards or laptops already has thermal pads above or below the storage to improve performance during times of high loads.

The Kingston KC1000 960Gb has maximum write speed 1600 Mb/s, maximum read speed 2700 Mb per second. SSD operate on Phison PS5007-E7 controller and M.2 or PCIe 3.0 x 4 interface standard. The NAND memory type is Toshiba MLC.
