The HyperX Savage 240GB SSD is powered by a quad-core, 8-channel Phison S10 controller providing speeds up to 560MB/s Read and 530MB/s Write. The IOPs on this Savage Monster are 100K/89K read / write and it represents Kingstons fastest Sata drive to date. Sata 6G tops out at 600MB/s per controller but sustained drive operations run more in the 560MB/s range so for Sata 6G the HyperX Savage saturates practical bandwidth. The HyperX Savage challenges the bandwidth Sata 6G offers and shows that drive technology has outstripped the Sata 6G interface. Leave it to Kingston to taunt the Sata 6G interface and challenge the Sata 6G interfaces speed.
