Kingston has just released its HyperX Savage SATA SSD line. We had an opportunilty to review the 240GB version, when it was released. Now we have the its larger 960GB on our test bench. With sequential speeds up to 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write, plus IOPS up to 100,000 read and 89,000 write, it is designed to be the fastest SATA-based SSD in the HyperX line up. The new drive has rather bold cosmetics that should appeal to many enthusiasts.

On paper the specs are very similar as well. The rated speeds of up to 555 MB/s read and 500 MB/s write are similar to the MX100 and M550 that came before it.
The arrival of the Intel 9 series motherboards also meant the arrival of the M.2 slot, formerly known as the Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF).
