Kingston KC2000 Overview
The Kingston KC2000 is your typical M.2 NVMe drive as it is only 80 mm long. This means it is going to easily fit in any motherboard that has come out in the past couple of years. Even though this is performance-class drive from Kingston they have opted for just a sticker on the drive, no heatsink. The sticker simply says Kingston KC2000 and has all of your serial numbers on it.
Flipping over to the back we can see that the drive is two-sided so we have some chips on the back. All of the chips are labelled as Kingston, but we know the main NAND chips are actually Toshiba BiCS4 96-layer 3D TLC NAND. The two smaller chips are 512MB DDR3L cache chips.
If we peel the sticker back on the top of the drive we can get a look at the controller. Please note that if you do this you could possibly void your warranty. The KC2000 uses the 8-channel Silicon Motion SM2262EN controller, which supports the NVMe 1.3 specification.
