Product Description

Kingston 240GB HyperX SSD Bundle Kit

Kingston HyperX SSD combines the latest SandForce controller technology with premium NAND Flash, reducing load times while increasing performance and endurance. It provides high-speed SATA Rev 3.0 (6 Gb/s) transfer speeds for larger bandwidth, which power users require for advanced gaming, multitasking and multimedia computing power.
Kingstons HyperX SSD lets users load games and applications faster, increase frames per second (FPS) and quickly transfer and edit large media files. Its cool, silent and requires less power and no additional cooling requirements.
When configuring the HyperX SSD partition, YOU can choose between having the maximum available capacity for data storage or giving up a little space to increase performance and endurance. This additional space is called "over-provisioning" on an SSD. The amount of performance and endurance increase depends upon the type of data being stored on the HyperX SSD. The more data that is MPEG, JPG, ZIP or ARC file types, the greater the benefit for this increased "over-provisioning".
HyperX SSD uses an advanced wear leveling technology that distributes writes evenly across all the flash blocks in the SSD to maximize overall drive endurance. Additionally, wear leveling ensures that the individual Flash memory blocks are consumed at a very balanced rate, not to exceed a 2-percent difference between the most often written blocks and least written. This enables the HyperX SSD to provide the longest possible life for the user while maintaining optimal performance.
