Although PCIe 4.0 SSDs are beginning to flood the storage market, there is still plenty of life left in the PCIe 3.0 x4 department. In fact, just in the last month or two we’ve seen various brands release new models using this interface because let’s face it – the performance on offer is still exceptional and not all platforms have embraced PCIe 4.0.
Kingston are no strangers to the storage battleground, they’ve been a key player since 1987 and today we’re poised to take a detailed look at their very latest KC2500 – boasting up to 3500MB/s sequential transfer rates and 375K IOPS.
Pricing on the KC2500 is extremely competitive and there is a lengthy 5 year warranty on offer with every purchase. Is this drive worth adding to your configuration? Let’s find out!
