Kingston has announced several new solid state drives that will be a part of its HyperX lineup, as the Savage SSD series.

To be available in 120, 240, 480 and 960GB capacities, the new Kingston HyperX Savage SSD series is based on a quad-core, eight-channel Phison S10 controller paired up with Toshiba's 19nm MLC NAND. The new HyperX Savage SSD series will be the fastest SATA-based SSD series in Kingston's HyperX lineup and will replace the HyperX 3K SSD lineup.

With the quad-channel Phison S10 controller, the HyperX Savage SSD series will offer sequential transfer speeds of up to 560MB/s for read and up to 530MB/s for write while random 4K performance is set at up to 100,000 IOPS for read and up to 89,000 IOPS for write.

The HyperX Savage is based on SATA 6Gbps interface and a standard 2.5-inch 7mm form-factor. Like other Kingston SSDs, the HyperX Savage will also be available as a stand-alone SSD or with an upgrade bundle kit that includes a 2.5-inch USB 3.0 enclosure, 3.5-inch bracket and mounting screws, SATA cable, hard drive cloning software, screwdriver and a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter.

While Kingston did not reveal any details regarding precise availabilty date or the price a quick check shows it listed for pre-order in retail/e-tail with a price set at €85 for the 128GB model, 135€ for the 240GB one, 265€ for 480GB and 660€ for the 960GB model.
