The HyperX 3K is one of Kingston's newer SATA 6Gbps solid state disks,
it features the popular second-generation LSI SandForce SF-2281
controller and 25nm MLC NAND synchronous flash memory rated for 3000
program/erase cycles, hence the 3K in the product's name. Kingston's
regular HyperX SSDs have higher-quality NAND flash memory with a p/e
rating of 5000 cycles, so the HyperX 3K should be seen as a more
budget-friendly version of the HyperX.
