Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB Review


Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB Testing:

PCMark 8 Storage test. This test is used to measure the performance of SSDs, HDDs, and even hybrid solutions by running a set of traces through real world applications to determine drive performance. Each of the routines, as well as the overall scoring and bandwidth tests, are used for a performance comparison with higher results indicating superior peformance.











IO Meter is an I/O subsystem measurement and characterization tool for single and clustered systems. It was originally developed by the Intel Corporation and announced at the Intel Developers Forum (IDF) on February 17, 1998. Since then, it has seen widespread use within the industry.




As I saw with the Patriot Phison-based drive, PC Mark 8 delivers a strong dose of real world reality when subjected to performance with everyday workloads. In IO Meter, Kingston's HyperX Savage drive again steps up and competes with the higher capacity comparison Phison drive. Here we see CPU usage is in the 8-9% range.


USB 3.0 Testing:

When Kingston puts together an upgrade bundle kit, it comes with a pretty comprehensive list of features that with the HyperX Savage line up includes a 2.5" USB 3.0 enclosure that will allow you to use the drive as a large capacity portable storage system. As you would expect, using the HyperX enclosure through a USB 2.0 port is going to deliver lower throughput than when running through a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port, so you can take the following results as best case results for the package.
