For real world benchmarking, we take several custom made folders full of different types of files of varying sizes and time their transfer to and from the device – thereby determining its read and write speed. For the first test, we used 8GB of MKV video files. On all of our tests, the files were transferred from a Kingston V300 240GB SSD.
As you can see from our performance results, the Kingston HyperX Savage is quite the performer when it comes to large file transfers with read and write speeds similar to what is advertised on the box. However, we did see things dip in the 1GB image transfer test.
