We have our standard cast of characters lined up for this review and added the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G to the mix since it was the fastest SSD we've tested to date thanks to a firmware update from SandForce. The Kingston HyperX has even newer firmware and as you can see here, SandForce and Kingston have made the SF-2281 controller paired with synchronous flash even faster. So far this is the fastest single drive we've tested when measuring read speed across the drive.

The write speed across the drive was also impressive, the fastest recorded so far.
