Kingston A1000 480GB NVMe SSD Review

In our throughput tests the A1000 produced some pretty erratic results for both reads and writes. During the read test, the drive faltered at the 64KB block size, dropping to 239.67MB/s but recovered well only to stumble again at the 1MB block size, before finally recovering to finish the test at 1,442.77MB/s.

There was also a couple of significant drops in the write performance, one at the 128KB block size and again at the 512KB block where the performance fell from the 1,088.63MB/s at the 256KB block to 793.79MB/s. The drive didn’t recover that well from this last drop, either, finishing the test run at 987.52MB/s.
