Kingston, a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today launched its A1000 PCIe NVMe™ SSD in India. This is Kingston’s first entry-level consumer-grade PCIe NVMe SSD with 3D NAND in M.2 form factor. It offers exceptional speeds which are twice as fast as a SATA-based SSD and 20X faster than a traditional hard drive. The Kingston A1000 SSD is available in 240GB, 480GB and 960GB2 capacities at MRPs of INR 12000, INR 21,800 and INR 40,650 respectively. It is backed by a limited five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.
The single-sided M.2 2280 (22mm x 80mm) form factor makes A1000 ideal for notebooks and systems with limited space. The PCIe NVMe drive features a Gen 3.0 x2 interface, 4-channel Phison 5008 controller, and 3D NAND Flash. It delivers 2x the performance of SATA SSDs with read/write speeds1 up to 1500MB/s and 1000MB/s giving it exceptional responsiveness and ultra-low latency.
As Kingston’s newest SSD for the entry-level PCIe NVMe market, A1000 is designed with 3D NAND Flash memory. It is more reliable and durable than a hard drive, and doubles the performance of a SATA SSD, providing consumers the benefit of PCIe performance at about the same price as SATA. Consumers can replace a hard drive or slower SSD with A1000 and have the storage needed for applications, videos, photos and more
