The Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SATA III MLC Internal SSD takes the same technology as the HyperX 5K and makes it more affordable. The Kingston HyperX 3K uses 3000 P/E cycle NAND memory. This drives the price down significantly into a sensible range. The HyperX 3K is still driven by the same SandForce SF-2281 controller and uses SATA Rev 3.0 interface. The combination of those features gives the HyperX 3K the ability to boast speeds up to 555MB/s read and 510MB/s write. IOPS performance has been rated at 40K/57K sustained random 4K R/W and 86K/60K maximum random R/W. This specific model is the upgrade kit which features, in addition to the SSD, a 2.5” metal USB enclosure, 3.5” bracket with mounting screws, SATA data cable, HDD cloning software, and a multi-bit screwdriver.
