Kingston Introduces the Next-Gen KC2000 NVMe PCIe SSD

Next-Gen NVMe For Enterprise and Power Users

Kingston is rolling out their new KC2000 NVMe PCIe SSD, featuring 96-layer 3D TLC NAND and an SMI 2262EN controller. It uses an M.2 2280 form factor and is available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities.

The Kingston KC2000 is a self-encrypting drive that supports end-to-end data protection using 256-bit AES Hardware-based encryption. This allows the usage of independent software vendors with TCG Opal 2.0 security management solutions. The KC2000 also has built-in Microsoft eDrive support, a security storage specification for use with BitLocker.

How Well Does This Next-Gen Kingston KC2000 NVMe SSD Perform?

The 1TB and 2TB version are obviously the fastest drives, topping out at 3200MB/s read and 2200MB/s write. However, the 500GB and 250GB is not that far off at 3000MB/s read. It is only the write speeds that differ greatly, with the 250GB version only managing up to 1100MB/s. Although the 500GB still reaches up to 2000MB/s.
