Kingston HyperX 240GB 6Gbps SSD Review

Kingston's HyperX brand is synonymous with high performance which is why they've placed that badge prominently on their newest SSD. So when we received their newest and first HyperX SSD, we were very curious to see how it stacked up against other SandForce SF-2281 drives. How will they set their drive apart from the growing SandForce powered SSD crowd? Read on to see.

The Kingston HyperX 240GB SSD either led or was right behind the leader in nearly every benchmark we threw at it. Kingston rates the maximum read/write specifications as 555MB/s for max reads and 510MB/s for max writes. We actually saw slightly more than that on the ATTO benchmark so their numbers appear to be spot on. The combination of the SandForce SF-2281 controller and the Intel 25nm ONFI 2.2 MLC NAND is a powerful combination.
