Kingston KC2000 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe SSD

The world of SATA based SSD’s is slowly coming to a close with the raw speed and performance of PCIe based drives falling to near price parity. The benefit is radically increased bandwidth, up to about 6x the raw speed and some drives are so small they can slot right into your desktop motherboard or laptop with no need for pesky cables. Kingston’s latest KC2000 NVMe PCIe SSD falls into this category in its M.2 2280 form-factor that brings 3200 MB/s reads and 2200 MB/s write speeds to capacities from 250GB to 2TB. Add in a 5-year warranty and you have the recipe for success, but does that translate to real-world performance? Let’s find out!

Intel Optane Memory H10 with Solid State Storage

Intel’s 3D XPoint (pronounced cross point) has been one of the very few of the dozens of annual groundbreaking storage technologies to make it to retail, and the only one in recent memory to actually deliver on the hype. This technology arrived in the form of a 16GB or 32GB M.2 module called ‘Optane’ that could be used as a very high-speed cache for your existing SATA drive. While many enthusiasts argued that ‘high speed’ was a bit of a stretch when mistakenly compared to top end NAND drives that were easily clearing the 3GB/s mark on high-queue depth sequential transfers in synthetic tests, those that could see the difference between apples and oranges saw the more than order of magnitude increase Optane provides in low queue depth random I/O that more closely resembles daily real-world usage.

HyperX Fury RGB 2.5” 240GB SSD

In a world of RGB-everything, nothing is safe from colorful illumination. Even your storage isn’t safe and HyperX has one of the few RGB SSD’s on the market. Not everyone has a spare M.2 port in their system, but you’d be hard pressed to find a computer that doesn’t have a free SATA port and the need for 240 to 960GB of extra high-speed storage that also looks incredible. With enough space and speed for today’s latest huge games, HyperX gives your storage a complete makeover with the Fury RGB SSD.

Intel SSD DC P4510 Series 2.0TB PCIe 2.5” Datacenter SSD

Intel has been making SSD’s for more than ten years now, but the average consumer is probably only familiar with them from the more recent Optane based drives. On the Enterprise side of the world, Intel is regarded as the defacto standard for reliability and performance. Some of this has spilled over into the prosumer world a few years back with the Intel 750 series drives. Today we’ll be looking at Intel’s SSD DC P4510 series drive. Designed for the rapidly growing and evolving cloud architecture, the P4510 series provides higher capacity, low latency and scalable performance for continued innovation.

Crucial P1 1000GB

Over the past few years, the popularity of M.2 drives has dramatically increased due to their small form factor, blazing speeds, and affordability. With the recent decline of prices of PCIe based SSDs, they are now making their way into many entry-level systems and not just enthusiast builds. Crucial’s new P1 line of NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD’s promises to brings both high speeds and ample storage suitable for any build. The P1 drive comes in 3 different configurations which range from 500GB to 2TB of storage with speeds up to 2000MB/s read and 1700MB/s write. With a starting MSRP of $109.99 choosing a PCIe based drive over a SATA SSD is now a much easier decision.

GIGABYTE M.2 2280 PCIe SSD 256GB

Gigabyte is one of the most well-known brands in the PC world and with that comes a certain level of brand loyalty. While Gigabyte does complete PC’s in the small form factor world, their laptops are the bread and butter of the read to run PC line up. For those that like to build, for the longest time you were limited to motherboards, and eventually video cards.  More recently we’re seen Gigabyte expand internal component offerings to power supplies, and memory, and even SATA SSD’s. Today we’ll be looking at their first jump into the NVMe market in the M.2 form factor.
