Description

Kingston's HyperX SSD combines the SandForce controller technology with premium NAND flash, reducing load times while increasing performance and endurance. It provides high-speed SATA Rev 3.0 transfer speeds for larger bandwidth, which power users require for advanced gaming, multitasking and multimedia computing power. Kingston's HyperX SSD lets users load games and applications faster, increase frames per second (FPS) and quickly transfer and edit large media files. It's cool, silent and requires less power and no additional cooling requirements.

When configuring the HyperX SSD partition, the user can choose between having the maximum available capacity for data storage or giving up a little space to increase performance and endurance. This additional space is called over provisioning on an SSD. The amount of performance and endurance increase depends upon the type of data being stored on the HyperX SSD. The more data that is MPEG, JPG, ZIP or ARC file types, the greater the benefit for this increased over provisioning.

HyperX SSD uses an advanced wear leveling technology that distributes writes evenly across all the flash blocks in the SSD to maximize overall drive endurance. Additionally, wear leveling ensures that the individual flash memory blocks are consumed at a very balanced rate, not to exceed a 2-percent difference between the most often written blocks and least written. This enables the HyperX SSD to provide the longest possible life for the user while maintaining optimal performance.

I have bought a lot of SSD's in my time, and in general, despite all the figures, it really doesn't matter which manufacturer you choose. They are all fast, and even relatively large differences in speed don't make that much perceived difference to the performance of the PC. Compared to a mechanical drive, everything is faster. However, Kingston do make some rather outrageous claims about games performance! Do they increase FPS? NO they don't! Do they reduce game load times? Well, actually, mostly no! If you are an online player, load times are often restricted by the response of the server, and have little to do with your PC.
Is it a worthwhile updage? Yes! But it doesn't solve all your PC issues...!!

This is an easy to set up drive but does not come with any supporting software or cables.
I cloned it with Acornis wd package and it had no difficulty in loading the drive. You must of course remember to format the drive first or Windows will not find it.
Definitely value for money.
