KC3000 – Kingston’s latest high-end SSD in test

Last fall, Kingston expanded its SSD lineup with a first PCIe Gen4 SSD. The KC3000 belongs to the absolute upper class with its sequential read and write rates of 7000 MB/s and 6000 MB/s, respectively, starting from the 1 TB model. These values are currently only reached or even surpassed by a few available SSDs. Kingston uses a very flat heat sink made of a graphene-aluminum mix so that the SSD is cooled sufficiently with this high performance.

Whether the Kingston KC3000 also achieves these values in the practical test, we will clarify on the basis of the 1 TB model available to us in the following test.

As mentioned at the beginning, the KC3000 is a high-end SSD in the M.2-2280 form factor. Kingston of course uses the current PCIe Gen4 interface and achieves sequential transfer rates of up to 7000 MB/s for reading and 6000 MB/s for writing with a capacity of 1 TB. Furthermore, the SSD is available with capacities of 500 GB, 2 and also 4 TB. The two larger models offer an even higher write performance of up to 7000 MB/s.

Kingston relies on the Phison PS5018-E18 controller for the KC3000, which is used in the majority of high-end SSDs, such as the Corsair Force Series MP600 Pro LPX we recently tested. In terms of memory, Kingston uses a 176-layer TLC NAND from the manufacturer Micron. Besides the dynamic SLC cache, they rely on 1 GB of DRAM cache for a good performance. The warranty period is the usual 5 years in this field, or up to a write performance of up to 800 TB.

Scope of delivery

The packaging of the M.2 SSD is very compact, half white, half black and red. It allows a direct look at the SSD. On the front, we can find information about the capacity, maximum transfer rate and warranty duration, in addition to the name.

The M.2 SSD is almost completely black, only the name and a few other accents are white. There is no simple sticker on the upper side, but a flat graphene-aluminum heat sink, which is supposed to dissipate the heat better to the environment. We already know this type of heatsink from some SSDs from the manufacturer TeamGroup. There are no components on the back, just a white sticker with some information and details about the SSD. This looks a bit different on the 2 and 4 TB model, these are equipped with memory chips on both sides.

Furthermore, a key for Acronis True Image HD is included. With the help of this software, drives or partitions can be backed up, or data can be cloned from the old SSD to the new one. The key is located directly above the M.2 SSD on the inside of the packaging, which unfortunately makes it easy to overlook.

Test system

Perfomancetest

To check the performance, we rely on our well-known benchmark course consisting of AS SSD, CrystalDiskMark, ATTO Disk and HD Tune Pro.

Perfomancetest results

The KC3000 outperforms the Corsair MP600 Pro LPX, which we recently tested, in the sequential write portion of the AS SSD benchmark, taking the top spot. In the sequential write test, however, it is only slightly behind the Corsair MP600 Pro LPX. The KC3000 can also convince in the important 4K test and achieves a very good result in reading as well as a good one in writing. In the further course of the AS SSD benchmark, the KC3000 did very well in the benchmark score and offered a very high performance in ISO within the copy benchmark, but fell short of our expectations in the program and gaming categories.

With 6982 MB/s in sequential read, we do not quite reach the manufacturer’s specification of 7000 MB/s in CrystalDiskMark, but the difference is very small. On the other hand, we can even surpass the manufacturer’s specification of 6000 MB/s with 6116 MB/s in sequential write. The Kingston KC3000 also delivers a good or mostly very good performance in the other CrystalDiskMark tests, this also applies to the 4K rates.

The Kingston KC3000 also makes a very good impression in the other benchmarks. In the ATTO benchmark, it is in the dense top field of the SSDs we have already tested in read mode, and it is well ahead of the rest in write mode together with the Corsair MP600 Pro LPX. In HD Tune Pro, the SSD achieves a very good average of 2240 MB/s, and the access times are consistently very low.

The KC3000 belongs to the fastest available SSDs in terms of technical data, which it also confirms in the test. The performance is very high throughout. In many parts of the benchmark course, it is at the top together with the Corsair MP600 Pro LPX, sometimes just before, but sometimes also just behind it. Only in a few tests does the fast PCIe Gen4 SSD fall slightly short of the high expectations, but it does not perform badly in these at all.

Sufficient cooling due to graphene and aluminum

During testing, the thin graphene-aluminum heatsink reliably prevented us from exceeding Kingston’s stated operating temperature. During the benchmarks, we reached a maximum temperature of 66°C. This is only slightly below Kingston’s specified limit, but the benchmarks represent an extreme case and not a typical usage scenario. If available, we still recommend using the motherboard’s SSD heatsink.

Conclusion

Overall, the Kingston KC3000 is a very high-performance PCIe Gen4 SSD and a successful overall package. The KC3000 offers very high sequential read and write rates as well as a very good 4K performance. It falls a bit short of our expectations in parts of the benchmark course, but at least it still delivers good results. We could not find any real weaknesses. The thin graphene-aluminum heatsink is, as expected, not comparable with the massive heatsinks of other M.2 SSDs in terms of cooling performance, but still keeps the KC3000 within the given limits of operating temperature under load.

Besides the performance, Kingston also convinces with a very good value for money. The SSD belongs to the cheaper specimens in its performance class. If we only consider SSDs that offer at least the same sequential write speed, then it is currently even the cheapest model. Prospective buyers should also keep an eye on the competition from our own company besides comparable SSDs from other manufacturers. The almost identical Kingston Fury Renegade offers an even higher sequential read speed and a longer warranty, in terms of TBW, at a similar price.

Last fall, Kingston expanded its SSD lineup with a first PCIe Gen4 SSD. The KC3000 belongs to the absolute upper class with its sequential read and write rates of 7000 MB/s and 6000 MB/s, respectively, starting from the 1 TB model. These values are currently only reached or even surpassed by a few available SSDs. … (Weiterlesen...)
