480GB HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSD (SHPM2280P2/480G)



Predator Blank Drive

AS SSD likes the Predator and sequential reads hit 1,443.13MB/s and sequential writes hit 885.37MB/s. The 4K test in AS SSD is brutal and dropped reads to 38.76 and writes to 91.30, but even those scores are good compared to other drives we’ve tested. The overall score was 1509 and the Predator is still showing its speed demon teeth and snarling at these tests.

Predator With OS Installed

We get similar results with an OS installed on the Predator;  a few MB/s difference here and there, but given the overall speed of the Predator, this is a very minuscule difference given the magnitude of speeds we are talking about with this aggressive drive.


As the industry’s leading provider of high-performance storage & network connectivity products, ATTO has created the widely accepted Disk Benchmark freeware utility to help measure storage system performance. As one of the top tools utilized in the industry, Disk Benchmark identifies performance in hard drives, solid state drives, RAID arrays as well as connections to storage. Top drive manufacturers, like Hitachi, build and test every drive using the ATTO Disk Benchmark.

ATTO runs a wider spectrum of tests than a lot of drive benchmarks and the Predator ate them up with the high speed hitting 1,548.66MB.s read and 998.67MB/s write.

The HyperX Predator with the OS installed gives much the same performance as the blank drive and the top end read speed was 1505.85MB/s while writes hit 983.75MB/s and single drive speeds just don’t get any better than that.

  1. The Samsung XP941 is commercially available! You don’t know what you’re talking about. Moreover the Plextor M6E doesn’t quite give this a run for its money but in most practical situations you’re not going to see much difference.

    • The Samsung XP941 is not the same speed drive and substantially slower ergo my statements hold true, The XP941 runs at max 1GB/s and 800MB/s a second read. As mentioned the Plextor M6E is also substantially slower and close to impossible to get. Intel now has a drive that smokes the Kingston drive but you better believe it will smoke Kingston’s price as well.
