With data getting bigger every day, from photos to videos and to even applications, manufacturers needed to come out with faster solutions for backing up your data. This is where Kingston comes in with their External USB 3.0 HyperX SSDs. For video enthusiasts like me, the fastest and most affordable solution till now was an external firewire based hard drive, but now with the new HyperX SSD from Kingston, the write and read speeds will be 3x-4x faster then what we have seen so far, making backing up data much faster and enjoyable.
On the following pictures, we see the USB 3.0 HyperX SSDs as well as some tests. The first test on the left with the blue results shows the read and write speeds of the new external HyperX SSD running through the new USB 3.0 interface, while the results shown in green are showing the results on a USB 2.0 interface. We can see a tremendous speed increase just by using USB 3.0. So this means that the Kingston HyperX SSDs will be also compatible with USB 2.0 in case the user did not get a chance to upgrade their system yet.
