Average Bench: 83.8% (149th of 873)

Based on 9,804 user benchmarks.  Models: KINGSTON SHSS37A240G, KINGSTON SHSS37A, KINGSTON KINGSTON SHSS37A, KINGSTON SHSS37A240G

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]

Overall a decent performer compared to my Samsung 840 SSD although I'm far from impressed with the HyperX boot speeds and even disappointed with Kingston for not offering or even releasing additional software for the HyperX Savage...
