Kingston KC1000 960GB PCIe M.2 Solid State Drive Review

Testing – HDTune Pro & ATTO
Keep in mind for testing the advertised speeds for this drive (960GB) are 2700 MB/s read and 1600 MB/s write.

Our first test is SiSoftware Sandra’s Physical Disks benchmark. We run both the read performance and write performance tests. Click on the images below to see the full-size results.

The read test yielded 2830 MB/s whereas the write score was 916.15 MB/s.

ATTO Disk Benchmark also measures transfer rates across specific lengths. ATTO uses RAW data, our transfer sizes ranged from 0.5 to 8192kb. ATTO is usually our definitive benchmark for solid state drives.

As you can see here we have read speeds of 2980 MB/s and write speeds of 2317 MB/s, much higher than the advertised speeds!
