Kingston UV300 is a new family of media-based SSD based on the TLC NAND. The new media ensure Phison controller S10, and uses a SATA 6 GB / s. Interestingly, the new SSDs are thinner than most of the available in the market – its thickness is only 5 mm. Included you will find special adapter, however, increasing the value to the standard 7 mm or 9.5 mm.

The transfer of compressed data (test ATTO):

  • 120 GB – 550 MB / s for reading and 350 MB / s for writing,
  • 240 GB – 550 MB / s for reading and 490 MB / s for writing,
  • 480 GB – 550 MB / s for reading and 510 MB / s for writing.

The Transfer of data (testing the AS-SSD and CrystalDiskMark):

  • 120 GB – 505 MB / s for reading and 280 MB / s for writing,
  • 240 GB – 510 MB / s for reading and 445 MB / s for writing,
  • 480 GB – 510 MB / s for reading and 495 MB / s for writing.

Much bigger difference we see in the case of the number of input and output. While the maximum random read speed at 4K blocks is a decent 95000 IOPS, so the maximum write speed is only 26,000 IOPS in most capacious version 13,000 IOPS is for 120GB model.
