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]


Solid State Drive Rankings (Price vs Performance) January 2018 SSD Rankings.

Welcome to our consumer SSD comparison. We calculate effective speed based on real world performance then adjust by cost per GB to yield a value for money rating. Calculated values don't always tell the whole picture so we check them against thousands of individual user ratings. The customizable table below combines these factors and more to bring you the definitive list of top SSDs. Share your opinion by voting. [SSDrivePro]
