    There's not much to argue here, the numbers speak for themselves. The Price may be a little steep for some, but we've not tested another drive of this capacity and performance that is cheaper. Patriot's done a stellar job with the PYRO SE and this is definitely a drive to buy if you're in the market for a high performance SSD., The Overclocker Read More
    2011 has come to an end, but that doesn't mean technology is slowing down one bit. For the second year in a row the solid state drive market was dominated by SandForce. If you wanted to produce a drive that was capable of the highest performance possible, you needed to start with a SandForce SF-2200 Series controller and pair it with either ONFi 2.0 or Toggle Mode NAND flash. , TweakTown.com Read More
    Patriotâ??s SandForce SSD lineup is already quite impressive, as both the WildFire and Pyro performing flawlessly for their respective price points. However, adding the Pyro SE to the lineup allows Patriot to offer a drive that performs nearly at the same level as the WildFire, but at a lower price point. This offers potential buyers a better value without them having to sacrifice too much in the way of performance., Neoseeker.com Read More
    The Pyro SE is the latest SSD from Patriot and is a new and improved version of the Pyro, both of which are powered by SandForce's SF-2281 processor. The main difference between the two is that instead of asynchronous NAND, the Pyro SE is equipped with 25nm synchronous MLC NAND, which can deliver up to 550MB/s read and 520 MB/s write speeds and a maximum of 85,000 IOPS., Storagereview.com Read More
    The recent advancements in technology has been advancing at nothing short of a breakneck pace as of recent. Not too long ago, SSD's with JMicron controllers experienced stuttering issues amongst the many other growing pains that came with the advent of the solid state drive. Needless to say the SSD race has moved far past those issues in a short time and has now moved into a speed war to see who can get the highest read/write speeds. The PYRO SE looks up to the task by spec to take on the top contenders in the category., bjorn3d.com Read More
    Among computer enthusiasts the name Patriot is synonymous with quality and value. Founded in 1985, this California-based company has established itself as a leader in the industry by delivering high quality memory solutions powered by the latest technology. Along with a full range of memory modules for desktops, laptops and servers, Patriot offers an assortment of flash-based data storage products including memory cards, solid state drives (SSDs) and USB flash drives. , cdrlabs.com Read More
    We've seen SandForce-based solid state drives become very popular over the last couple of years, as prices have continued to drop and consumers are taking notice of the impressive overall system boost that SSDs can offer. Today we will be taking a close look at a mid-range drive from Patriot, the Pyro SE 240GB SATA 3. This drive falls in-between Patriot's top drive, the Wildfire (with toggle NAND), and their original Pyro, which features more cost effective asynchronous NAND internals., Pureoverclock.com Read More
    Not long ago, OverclockersClub looked at both Patriot's offerings in the Sandforce 2281 equipped market, the Patriot Wildfire 120GB and Patriot Pyro 120GB. The Wildfire used Toshiba Toggle mode NAND, while the Pyro used 25nm MLC NAND flash as the type of memory. The performance targets for both drives were obvious, with the Pyro falling slightly lower in the spectrum than the Wildfire in both pricing and performance. While the max reads and writes are similar, the real world performance between the two drives was evident in the testing. The Pyro SE or "Special Edition" fills the performance gap between the two drives. Read/Write speeds come in at 550MB/s/520MB/s respectively, with 85,000 IOPs 4k aligned random writes. which seems to be pretty much the standard for a SF-2281 based drive., Overclockersclub.com Read More
    Benchmark Reviews has previously tested the Patriot Pyro SE, a second-generation SandForce SF-2281 solid state drive, which is considered their standard-IOPS enthusiast storage solution. Now we return to test the Patriot Pyro SE, which pushes the throttle on synchronous NAND flash for the best operational performance possible. Patriot rates the Pyro SE to deliver SATA 6Gb/s read speeds up to 550 MB/s with 4K aligned operations reaching 85,000 IOPS. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the Patriot Pyro SE SSD, 240GB model PPSE240GS25SSDR, against the leading competitors to find out just how much speed and performance this new solid state drive really offers. , BenchmarkReviews.com Read More
    As we have seen, the new Patriot SSD offers truly excellent performance. With synchronous chips in 16GB and a firmware update, it can even do better than the 240 GB Vertex 3 Max IOPS., Cowcotland Read More
    Our report today is going to examine the Patriot Pyro SE SATA 3 SSD. The Patriot Pyro SE (Special Edition) is the big brother of the Patriot Pyro SSD that we reviewed a few months back. The difference between the Pyro and the Pyro SE is that the Pyro SE that we are reviewing today utilizes premium synchronous NAND flash memory whereas the Pyro contained more value conscious asynchronous memory modules. At the end of the day, the Pyro SE is the true performer of the family while the Pyro has a lower price., TheSSDReview.com Read More
    The Pyro SE 240GB is an interesting product. Patriot have taken the older Pyro drive and have re-engineered it with Micron 29F128G08CFAAB synchronous NAND flash. This has helped to improve overall performance and to bring it almost right up to the performance level of the flagship Wildfire 240GB drive. [â?�] It would be difficult to find fault with the drive, especially with a competitive retail price of £350., Kitguru Read More
