In earlier versions of the V300, including those that were sent to review sites, the Kingston V300 used a Toshiba 19nm Toggle-Mode 2.0 NAND. This NAND has theoretical speeds up to 200 MB/s.  at some point they now have switched to Micron’s 20nm asynchronous NAND which is only expected to get performance to about 50 MB/s, a big difference.  Anandtech did some tests with AS-SSD: Comparison of Kingston V300 Revisions Revision Original (no longer available) New (currently available) Pre-Istalled Firmware 505A 506A ...

Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary 2400MHz 16GB Memory Kit

Kingston as a whole has been around a long time, but they created the HyperX brand when they realized there were people that wanted to push the limits of their system memory in order to increase performance.
