Kingston KC2000 1 TB M.2 NVMe SSD @ TechPowerUp

Published: | Posted By:

The adoption of NVMe drives has been slow since they first started hitting shelves.  Some of that can be attributed to low capacity while others might be related to performance.  Now that drives are getting easier to buy the selection has grown.

Last year we found a bug in Kingston's SSD firmware, which inflicted a significant performance penalty. Now a software fix is publicly available, and it makes a big difference. The Kingston KC2000 is now the fastest SSD we ever tested, it even manages to beat the Samsung 970 Pro.

I hate to see things like this but that is the nature of the review business.  Equally annoying are the instances where independent reviews don't match the advertised performance because there was a manufacturing variance added to accomidate for huge margins in performance.
