Kingston KC1000 480GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD/Solid State Drive
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, this drive 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.
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 specifically 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.
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 for greater design-in flexibility when used by system builders. There is a range of capacities available from 240GB to 960GB, and the KC1000 is backed by a limited five-year warranty and legendary Kingston support. Features • Superior Client SSD Performance: Outperforms traditional hard drive and SATA-based SSDs.
• Uses NVMe Protocol: Designed for SSD, unlike legacy SATA which was developed for hard-disk drives.
• Multiple Form Factors: Available in either M.2 2280 or Half-Height, Half-Length Add-in Card (HHHL AIC).
• Multiple Capacities: Available in a range of capacities from 240GB to 960GB to meet your data storage requirements.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.
