Are you running out of capacity in your Xbox One or PlayStation 4? Or Perhaps you move large amounts of data around regularly and require more speed than your typical USB pen drive? HyperX may have the solution for you.
The HyperX SAVAGE EXO uses 3D NAND and the USB 3.1 Gen. 2 protocol to present speeds approaching 500MB/s in sequential reads and 480MB/s writes. The USB 3.1 Gen. 2 connection is catered for in both Type-C and Type-A, depending on your use-case. HyperX claim the drive can reduce PS4 and Xbox One game loading times by as much as 20%.
The sleek outer shell is thin and light, weighing only 55g, making the device perfectly portable and easy to hide behind the PS4 or Xbox One.
480GB or 960GB are your capacity choices, which is ample storage space to carry around with you; a typical console game takes up around 50GB. The drive is also supported by a 3-year warranty and comes with free technical support. Today we're investigating the 480GB model so lets take a look.
