This is yet another Sandforce 2881 based SSD from Kingston, this time coupled with newer 19nm Nand flash. In terms of performance the V300 is nothing we haven't seen before with other Sandforce based SSDs. A side-by-side comparison with the HyperX shows that the two drives have a near identical performance profile which is more than a little disappointing given that the V300 is 16 months newer. With a sequential write speed of just 280 MB/s the V300 lags the group leaders by 62%, an expected result for a Sandforce based drive. To conclude, Kingston aren't offering anything new with the V300, consequently there are far faster (and cheaper) drives available elsewhere including the excellent Samsung Evo which is the current group leader. [Jan '14 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]
