When we ran synthetic benchmarks, looking at the sequential performance, the EXO recorded 522.1MB/s read and 511.1MB/s write. in
When looking at its 2MB sequential performance, the EXO recorded just 522.1MB/s read and 511.1MB/s write. In comparison, the Transcend ESD250C posted speeds of 285.0MB/s read and 166.2MB/s write.
As far as gaming is concerned, some would say that buying an external SSD for almost half the cost is better to expand storage. What the Hyper X Savage EXO offers is convenience, versatility, portability and an easy way for you to carry your files around without the need to carry a bulky 2.5″ hard drive. Priced at P6,890 at PCHub, we feel as though this is worth the price tag that HyperX was able to put on it.
