HyperX Savage USB 3.1 Flash Drive Review


Test System Configuration

Before we look at the numbers, lets take a brief look at the test system that was used. All testing was done on a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit and benchmarks were completed on the desktop with no other software programs running. Windows has had the power option set to high performance.

ASUS X99 Sabertooth Motherboard

The Intel X99 platform that we used to test the HyperX Savage 128GB drive was based around the ASUS X99 Sabertooth motherboard with BIOS 2001 that came out on 11/18/2015. We used the boards SuperSpeed+ USB 3.1 port to ensure the highest possible speeds.
