1 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 at
2 Based on “out-of-box performance” using a PCIe 3.0/2.0 motherboard. Speed may vary due to host hardware,
software and usage. IOMETER Random 4k Random Read/Write is based on 8GB partition.
Total Bytes Written (TBW) is derived from the JEDEC Client Workload (JESD219A).
