Kingston HyperX Predator 480GB m.2 PCIe SSD Review

Total Storage Bandwidth

Looking at the throughput performance of all tests combined, we see the Predator in the middle of the pack. Clearly, a second here and a second there add up to more notable performance differences over time.

For most users, simply moving from a mechanical hard drive to a SSD on the low end of the scale is significant enough to feel from day to day. More demanding enthusiasts want the best performance available and are willing to pay for it. All of the products in the PCIe-based M.2 category are premium models at this time.
