How We Tested

During our testing procedures, we used the configuration listed below. The only variable component between each benchmarking session was the SSD being tested.

The HyperX Predator was installed at a PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots using the adapter card, while the HyperX Savage was connected to a SATA-600 port.

Benchmarking Software

Error Margin

We adopted a 3% error margin in our tests, meaning performance differences of less than 3% can not be considered meaningful. Therefore, when the performance difference between two products is less than 3%, we consider them to have similar performance.
