  1. Based on "out-of-box performance" using a PCIe 4.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software, and usage.
  2. Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston's Flash Memory Guide.
  3. Total Bytes Written (TBW) is derived from the JEDEC Client Workload (JESD219A).
  4. Limited warranty based on 5 years or "Percentage Used" which can be found using the Kingston SSD Manager ( For NVMe SSDs, a new unused product will show a Percentage Used value of 0, whereas a product that reaches its warranty limit will show a Percentage Used value of greater than or equal to one hundred (100). See for details.
