Trim support and higher performance

Kingston has announced its second generation of Kingston SSDNow V solid state drives. The new V+ series drives feature Windows 7 TRIM support, will be available in capacities of up to 512GB and provide higher read and write speeds.

Unlike the previous V-series drives which had a maximum read and write speeds of up to 100MB/s and 40MB/s, the new V+ series are much faster as they are rated at 230MB/s for read and 180MB/s for write. The new V+ series will also feature higher capacities, up to 512GB, which is quite an improvement when compared with the old series which topped at 128GB.

Same as the previous V-series, the new one will also be available as a "desktop" bundle which includes 2.5-inch enclosure, 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting brackets, cloning software and SATA data/power cables.

The higher write and read speeds do also bring a higher price tag as well, so unlike the old V-series which started at €90 for the 40GB one and topped at around €180 for the 128GB version, the new V+ series starts at around €160 for the 64GB one and all the way up to around €1130 for the 512GB one.

You can find them all listed here.
