The OCZ Vertex 460A is basically a tweaked re-release of last years Vertex 460. The two drives share the same controller and the same basic NAND, although the 460A apparently uses a newer version of Toshiba's 19nm MLC. Unsurprisingly there is little difference in performance between the 460 and 460A. In absolute terms, with peak sequential read/write speeds of 516/500 MBps and peak 4K random read/write speeds of 25/120 MB/s the 460A does have a rock solid performance profile but OCZ cannot afford to re-release 12 month old technology, at least not of they want to continue to compete with the likes of Samsung, SanDisk and Crucial who are continuously innovating. Overall the 240GB 460A still sits amongst the top handful of drives both in terms of outright performance and value for money[Jan '15 SSDrivePro]

The 240GB Kingston HyperX Savage sports a Phison PS3110 controller. This marks a welcome departure from Kingston's use of Sandforce 2281 controllers and for the first time in years gives Kinston a shot at competing in the enthusiast/performance segment of the SSD market. Comparing the HyperX Savage and Fury shows that the new Phision controller has an effective speed that is around 40% faster than the Sandforce based Fury. But then comparing the similarly priced OCZ Vertex 460a and Savage shows that, although the overall effective speeds are similar, the Vertex has three times faster 4K Mixed IO speeds. The HyperX Savage is very good for typical consumer use but power users with more demanding I/O loads should probably look elsewhere. [Jun '15 SSDrivePro]
