Kingston to release HyperX Savage solid-state drives

Kingston to release HyperX Savage solid-state drives

About six months ago, back in fall 2014, Kingston announced the HyperX Savage line of memory modules, created to replace the HyperX Genesis memory line. Apparently the US maker of memory and SSDs has decided to expand this brand name and readies a new SSD line that will be called HyperX Savage too.

Just like in the case with the Genesis memory line, the new HyperX Savage SSD line will retire the HyperX 3K series, which has been around for approximately three years. The release of the HyperX Savage SSD line will also mark the arrival of the new Phison PS3110-S10 memory controller, which has eight channels and is obviously better than the LSI SandForce SF-2281, used in the HyperX 3K line. The upcoming HyperX Savage solid-state drive line will include four models with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB and will offer 520 MB/sec of read speed and 350/510/500/490 MB/sec of write speed, depending on the model. The line will also offer up to 100 000 IOPS when reading 4K blocks and up to 89 000 IOPS when writing 4K blocks. Strangely enough the TBW (Total Bytes Written) characteristic is rather low – the models allow 113 TB for the 120 GB model, 306 TB for the 240 GB model, 416 TB for the 480 GB model and 681 TB for the 960 GB model. All models come in the usual 2.5-inch form factor and measure 100.0 x 69.9 x 7.0 mm, weighing 96 grams and 92 grams (960 GB model only).

The availability date and pricing are unknown as of now.
