Computer memory maker Kingston Technology has announced the launch of its A2000 NVMe PCIe SSD in the Philippines.
The single-sided M.2 drive is Kingston’s next-gen entry-level, consumer NVMe PCIe SSD utilizing 3D NAND. A2000 delivers lower power and heat at a lower price, making it the perfect storage upgrade solution for Ultrabook and notebook users.
The Kingston A2000 SSD is available in 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB2 capacities at P2,500, P4,500 and P7,650 respectively. The product is backed by a limited five-year warranty and free technical support.
The Kingston A2000 has read/write speeds up to 2,200 / 2,000MB/s1, respectively, thus delivering 3x the performance of a SATA SSD. It is ideal for entry-level users and DIY system builders who appreciate responsiveness and ultra-fast loading times.
The A2000 is a self-encrypting drive that supports end-to-end data protection using 256-bit AES Hardware-based encryption that allows the usage of independent software vendors with TCG Opal 2.0 security management solutions including Symantec, McAfee, WinMagic and others. The drive also has built-in eDrive support, a security storage specification for use with BitLocker.
“With a single-sided slim M.2 design, A2000 works to its full potential when installed in an Ultrabook or other small form factor system making it the perfect drive for those seeking to upgrade their PC,” said Kingston. “Plus, with the drive being self-encrypted, users can trust that their data is protected and secure when used with the right TCG Opal 2.0 management solution.”
