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.

The drives are also available with a Upgrade Bundle Kit the includes a USB 3.0 enclosure, 3.5″ bracket and mounting screws, SATA data cable, Multi-bit screwdriver, 7mm to 9.5mm adapter, and Acronis data migration software.
