So in summary, the Kingston NV1 500GB provides excellent NVMe SSD performance in a compact M.2 form factor. With read/write speeds around 2/1.9 GB/s and long 5 year warranty, it makes a great choice for boot drives or gaming libraries on modern systems. The increased capacity over 250GB models also allows more storage headroom.
NV2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD Upgraded performance for thinner notebooks and systems
Kingston’s NV2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD is a substantial next-gen storage solution powered by a Gen 4×4 NVMe controller. NV2 delivers read/write speeds of up to 3,500/2,800MB/s1 with lower power requirements and lower heat to help optimise your system’s performance and deliver value without sacrifice. The compact single-sided M.2 2280 (22x80mm) design expands storage by up to 2TB2 while saving space for other components, making NV2 ideal for thinner notebooks, small-form-factor (SFF) systems and DIY motherboards.
