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

Testing – CrystalDiskMark & AS SSD
CrystalDiskMark is our next test and it has a sequential read / write test as well as a 512k and 4k random read / write test. We run this test at its normal settings and then at 0Fill.

Looking at the results we can see that the drive does do much better with highly compressed data. We’ve seen this trend with other Phison E7-based drives.

AS SSD Benchmark is next. This benchmark contains four synthetic as well as three practice tests. The main benchmark will give you scores in MB/s as well as IOPS.
