- Remarkable performance
- Features the latest 3D TLC NAND technology
- Supports a full security suite (TCG Opal, AES 256-bit, eDrive)
- Available in range of full capacities

* Based on “out-of-box performance” using a SATA Rev 3.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage. IOMETER random 4K read/write is based on 8GB partition.
** Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and is thus 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 at kingston.com/flashguide.
