Whichever testosterone booster wins this match-up, you lose.
Performix is a notoriously high-priced supplement manufacturer.
Buuut …if you’re wondering whether the expensive price tag is worth it, look no further than these two extremely high priced supplements: Performix Super Male T v2X and Performix Iridium Super Male Ti.
We’re looking at two $150+ priced supplements here. So, yeah, we get it: you want to make damn sure whether or not these are products worth the purchase.
Our only question is: Have you tried other options?

Round 1: Formulas
Let’s review each Performix formula one-by-one, starting with:
Performix Super Male T v2X: Test Boosting Fat Burns
The Super Male T v2X formulation of the Performix brand takes the hybrid approach to male enhancement, stacking up two proprietary blends, each with their own particular function:
- Super Male Performance Complex – the testosterone boosting portion of the formula, mixing traditional male enhancing herbs, such as Fenugreek, Tribulus, Maca, and, a BIG List of T-Boosters favorite, Mucuna Pruriens.
- Super Suspension Thermo Complex – the fat burning portion of the formula, which sits on a hefty dosage of caffeine. That’s right: caffeine in a testosterone booster — as well as the controversial stimulant synephrine (and other bitter orange compounds).
As far as energized test boosts go, Super Male T v2X isn’t bad. It selects, for the most part, the right ingredients for the job — even sliding in a few male healthy vitamins and minerals, e.g., vitamin B’s, D3, and Zinc.
For reasons we’ll get into in the next round (Round 2: Dosages), the proprietary blends are mysteriously insufficient at hitting critical mass dosages for each ingredient. And with 200 mg caffeine in this supplement, an unnecessary amount for a testosterone booster, we have to wonder if this product has its priorities straight.
Performix Iridium Super Male Ti: One Big Blend
Whereas Super Male T v2X splits its formula into two proprietary blends, Iridium Super Male Ti keeps it simple by forcing 12 of its 16 ingredients into just one blend.
Which isn’t really a good thing: this means more ingredients are hidden under a single dosage. (But, again, we’ll tackle that issue in the next round.)
Of the four ingredients not hidden away in the proprietary blend, two are Best5 favorites (D3 and Zinc) for their direct correlation with testosterone levels. However, these ingredients are also found in the previous Performix product — ditto for the best ingredients in the Performix Iridium Super Male Ti Performix Complex. Yet, the Iridium Super Male Ti proprietary does display a more focused variety of male enhancers than its Performix opponent, leaving out any unnecessary stimulants or cheap caffeine.
By avoiding the stimulants, Iridium Super Male Ti is able to notch in a few more estrogen control ingredients than Performix Super Male T v2X’s diindolylmethane (which is also found in Iridium Super Male Ti). For that, Performix Iridium Super Male Ti wins the first round.
Round 1… Performix Iridium Super Male Ti Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Frankly, neither supplement looks good in this round. And this has become a Round 2 trend for Performix due to the manufacturer’s attachment to the proprietary blend.
Essentially, the proprietary blend enables manufacturers to hide their individual ingredient dosages beneath a single, all-encompassing dosage — the idea being that this allows manufacturers to hide their “proprietary secrets.” Unfortunately, this hides their secrets from the customer as well as the competitors.
So, you’d think Performix would make up for this by adequately dosing their proprietary blends, but… this doesn’t seem to be the case.
For instance, Performix Super Male T v2X only sets aside 750 mg and 325 mg for its two blends, respectively. Which is almost mind-blowingly low given the supplement’s 4 cap serving sizes. Despite hiding its ingredients under just one proprietary blend, Performix Iridium Super Male Ti at least supplies a slightly higher overall dosage than Super Male T v2X — and this supplement only has 3 capsules per serving.
Round 2… Performix Iridium Super Male Ti Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
Okay, let’s lighten up the mood just a little bit. That last round got a little bit dark and depressing. This one is different: Both supplements look good.
However, one supplement looks gooder here.
In each corner, we’re finding an impressive range of patented ingredients. For Super Male T v2X, we’re seeing ZX3, Furosap, Testofuranol, Sensoril AdvantraZ, and BioPerine, and for Iridium Super Male Ti there are ZX3, KSM, LJ100, and Furosap. Both supplements also carry potent, non-patented herbal extracts, such as Horny Goat Weed and Mucuna Pruriens, a prime male testosterone boosting extract.
Given that both supplements rate highly in this round for the reasons, we have no choice but to resort to a tie. (Which is perhaps the best Super Male T v2X can hope for in this match-up.)
Round 3… Tie.
Round 4: Price
|Performix Super Male T v2X||VS.||Performix Iridium Super Male Ti|
|1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$179.99||1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$169.99|
|Price Per Capsule||$1.50||Price Per Capsule||$1.89|
|Price Per Serving||$6.00||Price Per Serving||$5.67|
Round 4… Performix Wins. The Consumer Loses.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
Rounds 1-3 seem irrelevant now that we’ve finished round 4.
Six dollars per serving?? That’s an insanely expensive supplement, and $5.67 isn’t much better at all — especially considering that you’re getting even smaller servings with Iridium Super Male Ti …well, kind of (smaller servings, potentially better dosages).
Either way, the price per value for each product is almost unreal, especially when you check out the price tags of other effective muscle building testosterone boosters that manage to show all of their ingredient dosages and pack in heavier, harder hitting test boosts.
If you don’t have to choose between these two supplements, we’d recommend trying out a more cost effective test booster. But, for whatever reason, if you have to go with Performix, we recommend Performix Iridium Super Male Ti. It’s a more focused product than Performix Super Male T v2X, and it’s $10 cheaper …which is something, I guess.
