Kingston SSDNow V+100 96GB Review

The Kingston SSDNow V+100 is outwardly similar to all the other Kingston SSDs we've seen. The drive is already 9.5mm tall so no spacer is necessary.

The SSDNow V+100 uses Toshiba's T6UG1XBG controller, which supports TRIM as well as OS-independent garbage collection.

Next to the Toshiba controller (the square chip) is a DRAM cache. There are eight NAND modules here; The underside of the PCB is empty.

Test Setup

The following setup was used for benchmarking:

Motherboard Gigabyte H67A-UD3H
Processor Intel Core i3-2100
Graphics Intel HD Graphics 2000
Power Supply Cooler Master Silent Pro 1000W
Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit
Drivers Intel Chipset Drivers
Intel Rapid Storage Technology

For comparison, we will be using two other SSDs: The Corsair X128 128GB, which uses the Indilinx Barefoot controller and the Intel SSD 320 120GB, which uses Intel's proprietary controller.
