Kingston Digital KC1000 960GB PCIe NVMe SSD Review


AS SSD Benchmark

AS-SSD (2.0.6485.19676) Benchmark:

We have been running the AS-SSD Benchmark app for over some time now and found that it gives a broad result set. The programmer has worked very hard on this software and continues to make updates often so if you use it, show him some love and send him a donation. There are now three tests that are found within the tool and we’ll show the results from all three of them.

AS SSD -Kingston KC1000 960GB:

Benchmark Results: On AS SSD, the Kingston KC1000 960GB drive had an overall score of 2,713 points with sequential read speeds of 2334 MB/s and 1332 MB/s write. The 4K random results were at 47.9 MB/s read and 94.0 MB/s write.

AS SSD Copy – Kingston KC1000 960GB:

Benchmark Results: The copy benchmark test results were ranging from 638 MB/s in the Program to 1675 MB/s in the ISO benchmark.

AS SSD Compression – Kingston KC1000 960GB:

Benchmark Results: For this benchmark chart you would ideally want to see a straight line as you dont want any compression performance loss as the test goes from 0% compressible to 100% compressible data during the benchmark test period. The Kingston KC1000 performance improved on both reads and writes as the compression got better.
