Hardware lottery with Kingston NV1 SSD

The 9-month-old drive is equipped with two types of controllers as well as NAND flash memory, and lutri, what do we buy – or not?


Kingston’s entry-level, released in March this year, NV1 Named NVMe, the NVMe SSD follows a manufacturing strategy similar to the not-so-patchy A400, meaning the company doesn’t guarantee fixed hardware components, but throws multiple controllers and NAND flash chips into the condenser to effectively target the lowest possible price levels. As a result, the speed and write tolerance specifications listed on the product page are quite restrained, as it is necessary to present numbers that can be brought in with any component lineup, but the company has never made it particularly clear that this variation is included in the deck for affordability.

In this case, the blender may consist of SMI SM2263XT and Phison PS5013-E13-31 controllers and TLC and QLC NANDs. TLC chips can typically be placed on low capacity specimens, and a TechPowerUp one of his readers pointed out that even without unpacking the blister pack, we can ascertain which controller is working on the container; if a glossy component peeks out from under the paper at the top right corner of the sticker, we’re dealing with an SMI version, and if capacitors are watching here, Phison will be the runner-up.
