The Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB delivers exceptional sequential read performance. It doesn't need a ton of outstanding commands stacked up to saturate the SATA bus, like many of the other products on our chart. This is a phenomenon we've observed from other Phison S10-controlled products, such as Corsair's Neutron XT and Patriot's Ignite. Phison's previous-generation S8 also excelled in this area.
