KC1000 480GB NVMe M.2 PCIe Solid State Drive (SKC1000/480G)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. The KC1000 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 2500MB/s.
The 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 specifcally 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.
The 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 (Only Included with the HHHL AIC version) for greater flexibility.
