KLEVV may not be as well known as their competitors in the storage market, but they want to make big waves. They have just launched two new M.2 NVMe PCIe SSDs, the CRAS C920 and C720.

We’re getting spoilt for choice when it comes to storage. Samsung, Seagate, and WD are just some of the vendors who have launched SSDs recently, with some also going for the budget-conscious.

Both drives come with a DRAM buffer (or called the DRAM Cache in the C720) that improves speed and durability. They also feature an intelligent SLC caching algorithm and hardware LDPC ECC engine to further improve endurance and performance.

The KLEVV CRAS C720 is an SSD for those looking for storage on a budget and is an upgraded version of last year’s C710 PCIe Gen3x4 SSD. While also a PCIe Gen3x4 SSD the read and write speeds are much faster, with speeds up to 3,400MB/s read and 3,100MB/s write. The fastest C710 by comparison only reached up to 2,100MB/s read and 1,650MB/s write. The C720 is available in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities.

The CRAS C920 is KLEVV’s first PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD. It has twice the speeds of Gen 3 SSDs with speeds of up to 7,000MB/s read and 6,850MB/s write. The C920 comes in capacities of 1TB and 2TB.

 

Pricing and availability

Both KLEVV’s C920 and C720 come with a five-year limited warranty. Included is Acronis True Image HD 2018 software for easy full disk-image backup and data migration from older drives. KLEVV products are distributed by Tech Dynamic Ptd Ltd in Singapore. KLEVV lineups are also available at local online/offline channels. We have yet to receive local pricing details but we will update this article with that information once we get it.
