Maxed-Out Performance

This testing is just to see what the drive is capable of in an FOB (fresh out of box) state under optimal conditions. We are utilizing Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit for this testing.

100% Compressible data

The HyperX Savage intrigues us with its 100% compressible data performance; however, this "artifact" for lack of a better word, disappears as soon as compression is introduced into the mix.

Even with compression at only 8% the result is exactly the same as 100% compression.
