Kingston HyperX Predator 480GB PCI-Express Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, May 09 2015 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCI-Express storage is nothing new, we have seen many different PCI-Express storage options over the past few years. The biggest advantage of using PCI-Express storage is that you overcome the typical 6.0Gb/s theoretical bandwidth limit of SATA-based solid state drives. If you have been following the storage industry you know that solid state drives have been bottlenecked by the SATA interface for years now. Well Kingston is presenting their first ever PCI-Express solid state drive. Part of their high-end HyperX brand the HyperX Predator boasts sequential read and write speeds of 1400 MB/s and 1000 MB/s respectively. That is some serious speed! While many PCI-Express storage devices we have reviewed in the past have featured a custom PCB with the drive on it Kingston has gone the M.2 route. So you can either buy the single M.2 device to use on an M.2 slot or you can buy it pre-installed in a PCI-Express adapter. We received the version with the adapter, let’s jump in!"

Samsung SM951 NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD Review
     Thu, May 07 2015 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung SM951 AHCI M.2 PCIe SSDs might be the most talked about enthusiast SSD at this moment, but what about the Samsung SM951 NVMe drives? If you thought the OEM-only Samsung SM951 AHCI drives was tough to purchase you will likely lose some hair trying to find someone that has the Samsung SM951 NVMe drives available to purchase today. Though the SM951 NVMe drive is not available through retail channel just yet, we managed to get our hands on one and have been using it on a number of systems over the past few weeks.

Kingston HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSD Review
     Tue, May 05 2015 | 12:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State Drives continue to be one of the more sought after (and effective) upgrades for both desktop and mobile systems. But as drives have matured, and newer generations have been released, the bandwidth limitations of the legacy SATA interface have become increasingly more apparent. Even relatively affordable, mainstream solid state drives are bumping into the SATA bandwidth limit right alongside more expensive flagship drives, which makes it difficult to differentiate between them based on performance alone. The answer to eliminating the bandwidth limitations of the SATA interface is PCI Express. The latest high-end solid state drives connect to a system using the PCI Express interface, which can offer up much more bandwidth than SATA in the right configuration—GB/s versus MB/s. One of the first true PCI Express solid state drives to arrive is the Kingston HyperX Predator we’ll be showing you here today...

Eluktronics Eluktro Pro Performance SSD Review (250GB/500GB/1TB
     Tue, May 05 2015 | 12:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Eluktronics isn’t a name brand you think of when you start looking for a new SSD. Up until just recently we didn’t even hear about this company, let alone know they offered some very price competitive SSDs. Well, it turns out, this USA based company has been in business since 2011 as an authorized reseller of performance laptops with SSD and RAM upgrades ever since. In Q2 of 2014 they decided to step into the SSD market and produce their own SSDs. Most of their flash comes from Asia, but their products are built and assembled in the USA.

el 750 Series PCIe SSD 1.2 TB
     Tue, May 05 2015 | 12:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's new 750 Series SSD is a technology marvel. It is built on an 18-channel controller, using a PCI-Express x4 3.0 interface with the NVMe protocol. This provides transfer rates of well over 1 GB/s, which clearly impresses. With a price of $1 per GB the drive is also not prohibitively expensive.

A 500GB SSD for less than $200? Crucial does it with the BX100. Let us see if it is any good.

ton V310 960GB SSD Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are one of those users who demands a massive primary drive in a system then today’s review will be of interest. We look at the new Kingston V310 Solid State drive, which ships in a whopping 960GB capacity. The big question which we answer today – does it compare well against market leaders such as the Samsung 840 EVO 1TB?

Angelbird 512GB wrk SSD Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Angelbird. Not the first name many would associate with SSD technology – however this Austrian company have earned a reputation in the high end sector dealing with design professionals, music producers and film makers. One of the interesting aspects with Angelbird is that their drives are designed and manufactured in Austria. Today we are looking at their new 512GB wrk drive – a high end model using the Silicon Motion 2246EN controller.

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SSD @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to SSD shopping you have to consider your budget, speed requirements, and also your brand preference. For me personally, I have been using Kingston drives in basically all of my builds as well as all of our test benches for a few years now. This is partly because Kingston has always been great about supporting us but it is also because when I visit their offices and their US manufacturing I watched them jump through hoops testing and retesting their Memory. I realized that they take their quality very serious and for me more than anything else I can’t afford to have my SSD die. So while there have been other drives that are faster, I stuck with them. Why am I telling you this today? Well that is because today I will be taking a look at a MUCH needed new SSD in their product line called the Savage. The Savage line from HyperX isn’t new, they have a nice set of RAM under the name already but today they officially introduce the new SSD. So kick back for a few while I dig into the HyperX Savage SSD and see what it is all about.

Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 SSD Review
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are you in a hurry? Solid state Drive Technology has been serving up data at the fastest rates available to consumers, quickly earning the distinction of ‘instant’ storage. SSDs built for the SATA interface already make most computers open applications in a snap, but the latest generation of PCI-Express 2.0 based SSDs bring that title closer to the truth. The new Kingston HyperX Predator PCIe M.2 SSD is one such example, and boasts 1400 MB/s read speeds with 1000 MB/s compressible data writes. Available in 240/480GB storage capacities, and available as a single M.2 drive or installed to a half-height half-length PCI-Express 2.0 adapter, in this article Benchmark Reviews tests the Kingston Predator against the fastest SSDs on the market.

Global HDD demand to keep falling, says HGST executive
     Fri, May 01 2015 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Global demand for hard disk drives (HDDs) of all sizes will continually decrease from 561 million units in 2014 to 550 million units in 2015 and further to 538 million units in 2016, according to Taiwan and Shanghai general manager Vincent Chen for HGST.

Intel SSD 750 NVMe PCIe SSD Review
     Fri, May 01 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel recently launched the SSD 750 series, which is first set of SSDs that support NVM Express (NVMe) or Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface Specification (NVMHCI) technology. NVMe is set to replace the AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface) technology that came out in 2004 when the PC market was still dominated by hard drives. AHCI has served us all well over the past decade, but the NVMe specification was build specifically for Solid-State Drives (SSDs) that are attached through the PCI Express (PCIe) bus. The enterprise space has enjoyed NVMe technology for over a year, but sadly no consumer oriented PCIe SSDs with support for NVMe has made it to the market. Intel changed all that this month by releasing the Intel Solid-State Drive (SSD) 750 Series, its highest performing SSD for use in client PC storage devices and workstations.

Kingston HyperX Savage SSD Review (240GB)
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 6:25P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HyperX Savage fills the mid-range performance spot in their SSD line up. For those looking for a step up from their HyperX Fury, but who don’t want to go as far as to buy their HyperX Predator, the HyperX Savage is the SSD to look at. It is powered by a Phison S10 quad-core, eight channel controller and filled with Toshiba’s A19 NAND. These components make for a great combination and place this SSD as Kingston’s fastest SATA-based SSD with sequential speeds up to 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write!

Kingston HyperX Savage SSD Review
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 6:24P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HyperX, a division of Kingston, had been making headlines. It began with their Predator PCIe M.2 SSD, which fetched data at more than 1400 MB/s. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the HyperX Savage SSD, designed for performance enthusiasts and replaces the HyperX 3K solid state drive. HyperX Savage utilizes a quad-core eight-channel Phison PS3110-S10 storage controller capable of 560 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write speeds. The 240GB HyperX Savage SSD Upgrade Bundle Kit received for testing (SHSS3B7A/240G) will be tested against the fastest solid state drives available for the SATA interface.

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SSD Review, Raw Savage Speed
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 6:24P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
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.
