The approach of Kingston’s new KC2000 series is simple: create SSD units that offer higher performance and greater capabilities than the KC1000 from a new Silicon Motion controller and NLC 96-layer TLC chips. When comparing the new units with the KC1000, which offered 2700 and 1600 MB / s of sequential read and write, we find 3200 and 2200 MB / s, despite the transition from NAND of MLC type to NAND TLC 3D. Of all the series, the models of 250 and 500 GB offer worse yields, but they are still fast.
All Kingston’s KC2000 series operates using PCIe 3.0 in to 4x interface through the M.2 format 2280. They have a 5 year warranty for all models, and placed in order, the models of 250 GB, 500 GB , 1 TB and 2 TB have rates of 150 terabytes written, 300, 600 and 1200, respectively. They will reach the market in the coming weeks for $ 62.40, $ 114.40, $ 201.50 and $ 410.80, keeping the same order.
