The Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 2,133mhz memory kit has impressed us. It is true that there is no shortage of quality memory on the market today, but we think these custom copper core heatspreaders really help to make the product stand out.
For those who look for high capacity for their memory configuration, Patriot G2 series 8GBx4 kit is definitely satisfactory. Recently lunched Intel 7-series platforms, also supporting 32GB memory, make the product even worth the money. Graphic workers who require lots of memory in their PC systems must consider Patriot G2 to improve their productivity.
Patriot PYRO SE, adopted SandFore SF-2281 controller, shows its level of performance. Currently the chip, SF-2281, has become mainstream not only because of its price advantage but also because of its performance merit. For consumers who look for a well-equipped SSD, this one is definitely worth to consider.
The Dual-channel kit of Patriot Viper Xtreme Division2 2133MHz, top of its line, shows us a satisfied performance. In addition, XMP supports simple 2133MHz overclocking that allows beginners to unleash the power of high-performance overclocking memory. As comparing to existing one, the special designed copper heatshields of the kit resolve the heat dissipation in a better way. With the upcoming Ivy Bridge platform, we believe the kit will show its full potential.
The good performance in all tested aspects speaks in favour of the Patriot Pyro SE. Besides the above average write speeds, the Pyro SE convinces with its low access times. ... Patriot Memory's Pyro SE is a high-performance SSD with useful features.
Patriot Supersonic Magnum, despite MLC, reveals its extreme performance out of the 8-channel technology and takes full advantage of USB3.0 bandwidth. The beauty of this product is the read/write speed, with connecting with USB3.0, is close to that of a SATAII SSD - a high performance device of true USB3.0 class. In addition, the aluminum housing with shock resistant of the product rules out the durability concern of daily use.
The AMD Performance Edition kit â?Â¦ is actually very high grade memory manufactured by Patriot which worked perfectly with every board we tested, on both AMD and Intel platforms. ... AMD Performance Edition is a quality memory kit that can run at 1866mhz with slightly relaxed timings and is supplied with low profile, thick aluminum heatspreaders for maximum heat dissipation.
The kit does not lack visual charm, the matt black PCB, the high cooling shield that does not go above the memory card are very good ideas.
In terms of performance, the kit meets present standards in the different benchmarks, only the compression does not seem to be its strength.
In terms of performance, the kit meets present standards in the different benchmarks, only the compression does not seem to be its strength.
Patriot has come through again with another quality memory kit. Â In our test the performance was very good and our system ran stable without any issues. Patriot memory has proved that they are one of the best companies in computer hardware manufacturer and we feel happy to announce award for Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 DDR3 8GB (1866Mhz) Memory kit.
When using ATTO to test this drive, the speed reached to outstanding read 91MB/s and write 30MB/s. Incorporating with its rugged robber housing, the drive brings more than performance but protection for your day-to-day using.
In the end , we must say that Patriot PYRO 120GB SSD is one of the good SSD drive in the market according to its price. It will do great job for you if you are willing to build a budget mid range gaming pc. Moreover its better to use as primary drive for operating system . The Patriot PYRO 120GB SSD receives the award from TechTipsnReview for their fantastic work on this SSD .
the Patriot G2 Series memory kit shone on its overclocking ability. We managed to push its operating frequency to a high of 1720MHz versus 1666.8MHz that was achieved by the Kingston HyperX memory kit. At such overclocked frequencies, the memory bandwidth of The Patriot G2 is approximately 3.6% higher at 40.52GB/s versus the recorded bandwidth of 39.10GB/s of the overclocked Kingston HyperX memory modules.
We were all surprisingly content with dual channel memory performance when Intel announced triple channel memory support in Gulftown processors. Then just as we got use to the high-speed triple channel performance being the most efficient method for delivering epic amounts of memory bandwidth for big projects, Intel again changed the way content creators get their work done by giving us quad channel memory support inside Sandy Bridge-E processors. But what exactly is the benefit of all those channels? Letâ??s see if the Patriot Memory Division IV Viper Extreme Memory Kit has those answers!
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.
When we think about performance storage in the consumer space, most of us skip quickly to the enthusiast-grade SSDs, and for most usage scenarios, that makes sense. But there are cases when even the fastest SSDs don't provide enough throughput - enter RAM disks. Storage devices built around volatile RAM have been in use for some time, but with RAM getting both faster and less expensive, there's an increasingly viable case to be made for using RAM as a semi-permanent storage solution. In this case, we take a look at Patriot Memory's Viper XTreme Division 4 RAM as used in a RAM disk scenario.
Due to the excellent overall performance in our tests, considering the excellent overall quality and, ultimately, the three-year warranty offered by the manufacturer, we can only give the Pyro SE 120GB maximum of our votes.
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.
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.
Ever since I first heard about SSDs everyone has said so many great things about them yet I never jumped on the SSD bandwagon until now.
Tons of people have mentioned how fast they were compared to a mechanical hard drive but I figured that I could wait it out until they were around the $1/GB mark.
Product: AE34G1609U2 AMD Memory Entertainment Edition
The red sticker on the black heatshield builds a nice contrast and stands out from the otherwise dark appearance. Especially the black PCB is a plus for casemodders. ...
The modules show great results in the DDR3-1866 mode with CL9-10-9-27 at 1.6 V. ... For those who like to buy components from the same brand, they will definitely like AMD's memory modules.
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.
Finally, a set of sticks that does well out of the box (expected), and overclocked! Like 99.99% of all brand new in box items, you expect them to work per the factory specifications as described, and they do. Overclocking on this set of RAM was successful up to 952 MHz which inst bad at all for a 4 x 4 GB kit. We werenâ??t breaking any records with this kit, but those trying arenâ??t buying 4 x 4 GB 1600 MHz kits to do so either.
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.
For now Patriot is doing a reasonable job of competing with OCZ on the pricing front, though the Pyro SE series is still slightly more expensive than the Vertex 3 range. That said, when compared to other competitors such as Kingston, the Patriot drives are much cheaper. Therefore we have no problem recommending the new Patriot Pyro SE series as it provides strong performance at a reasonable price.
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.
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.
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.
As many of you may already know, the X79 motherboard combined with the Core i7 3960X is an extremely powerful platform for nearly anything you want to do. One key component of this platform is the fact that it supports Quad-Channel memory which results in a whole lot of memory bandwidth and memory slots. Most X79 motherboards either feature 4 DIMM slots or 8 DIMM slots depending on whether or not the manufacturer wants to tailor it for overclocking as many overclocking X79 boards only feature 4 DIMM slots or a single Quad-Channel setup.
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.
The Pyro SE has the latest SATA3 interface, and we were blown away by its performance in our file transfer tests. It wrote large files at 169MB/s and read them at a blistering 360MB/s. Small files were written at 161MB/s and read at 123.6MB/s, making the Pyro one of the first SSDs we've seen capable of fast speeds in our demanding small files read test. [...] It's a great buy if you want the benefits of solid state storage without spending a fortune.
The Division 4 Viper Xtreme is no doubt probably the cheapest kit we've so far, but in no way is the kit cheap. On the overclocking side of things we found ourselves really limited with no real headroom, but with that said, we've got some awesome performance out of the kit thanks to the more aggressive timings.
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.
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 Â£350.
Patriot's Pyro SE is the latest in a long line of blazing-fast SandForce SSDs. By using a high-speed SF-2281 controller and performance-orientated asynchronous NAND flash memory, the drive is able to churn out staggering numbers in all the common benchmarks.
Bottom line: the Pyro SE offers blistering all-round speed and acts as an excellent upgrade to any high-end system.
Looking at the Pyro SE from an all-around angle, we can certainly see why they have developed it to offer slightly better performance by use of the Micron synchronous memory which boosts things quite dramatically and by keeping a low price point, it still remains a fantastic, cost-effective product which in this current climate is what the consumer really need.
Overall, Patriot have got a great drive here, that offers good competition into the SandForce market and performs extremely well in all areas including synthetic and real-world usage, with the only downside being the slightly high price tag, but as they say, if you want the best, you do have to pay for it, so be prepared to get your wallet out with this one.
The bottom line is that the Pyro is a great budget drive and will be the perfect upgrade to anyone wanting a quick boost in performance ..., by offering 500MB/s speeds when needed most, the Pyro really is a great drive and Patriot have done a good job in marketing it by being truthful, upfront and brutally honest. It really is a simple, no-frills SSD.
Patriot's Wildfire 120 GB impressed me with its performance. ... The Wildfire 120 GB easily defeats the other SandForce drives ... Overall Patriot's Wildfire 120 GB SSD is a great choice if you are looking for the maximum in performance on a Sandforce driven SATA 6 Gbps SSD.
Generally Patriot provides a very good performance, and in most cases it is either the best or among the best results we've seen. The number of operations the device can process per second is a record high ...
It performs very well and is a good choice for both the workstation and enthusiast computer user.
Patriot Viper Extreme Division 2 2133MHz 9-11-9-27 2 x 2GB Kit being best performance model in the line, equipped with an extruded aluminum shield build around a copper core to provide improved cooling, unlike much other vendor with a simple piece of metal on top, Patriot has its solid one, heavy for its size and firm heatspreader that needless to afraid lost contact with chipset while installing the kit. Latency being less importance for bandwidth in sandy bridge platform, this 2133MHz kit definitely worth getting for new system builder.
Let's say:It's not just great performance. It is so right to use with your lovely N/B. With the Patriot Pyro 60GB SSD's low power consumption, which contributed to lower temperature, and quiet operation, your N/B battery will enjoy a longer life. Patriot Pyro 60GB can answer user with its best performance and low price. For that, we honor the product Value Select award.
The Pyro is a no nonsense solid state drive that ticks all the right boxes and is accessible for a wide audience of enthusiast user. The Sandforce SF2281 controller continues the long run of class leading performance, and the Pyro is another top quality drive reinforcing the line up.
Patriot gives us 32GB of Awesomeness. A gamer with money to burn or someone who just requires huge amounts of RAM; Z68/P67 users, look no further than the Patriot G2 32GB kit we've got here today...Amazing!
For friends who want to ensure the smooth game play, Pyro does make it smoother for me to play my game and I do not have to wait a long time to load the game at all. Finally, I recommend the PATRIOT PYRO SSD 120GB SATA III, if you want to buy a SSD, because it is so cool to use!
We can see from our tests that the Patriot Wildfire has a clear performance lead over both of the Corsair drives [Force and GT] we used for comparison, so it is ideal for those looking for the ultimate performance from their drive. We are glad to see that Patriot is including a 3.5 inch adapter with the Wildfire as it ensures compatibility with virtually any PC case. This is something we would like to see all SSD manufacturers include with their drives in the future.
In fact USB 3.0 thumb drives are still not that easy to come by, with just a handful of options available. Furthermore, most of the better examples out there only boast read/write performance of about 130-80MB/s, making the Patriot Supersonic Magnum something special. Finally, we highly recommend the Patriot Supersonic Magnum 128GB to anyone seeking a compact thumb drive capable of SSD-like performance in a 64Gb or 128GB storage capacity.
Here we are at our final considerations that cannot only confirm that the pair of Patriot WILDFIRE has proved to be fast, stable and able to provide an excellent increase in performance compared to the previous generation SSDs.
In conclusion, Patriot WildFire, adopting SandForce 2nd Generation controller and 120GB MLC NAND Flash to support SATA3 interface, shows extremely outstanding on both read and write speed, especially the amazing 64MB/s speed of 4K write. Furthermore, the 2.5 inch form factor, bundled a 3.5 inch bracket, gives the most flexibility of upgrade for both desktop and laptop users.
Good out of the box performance, overclocking headroom and an excellent quality cooler, the Patriot Viper Xtreme PC3-17066 4GB kit is a great option for people who only want 4GB of RAM and are looking for something that is made extremely well.
The results today show that the Patriot Wildfire 120GB is right at the top of the performance pile, thanks to the use of 32nm Toshiba MLC NAND flash. ... There really is no faster 120GB drive on the market right now.
The Patriot Wildfire is a speedy, solid little SSD, and we've been impressed by the package it's put together. The drive keeps pace with the big boys of the SSD market and in some places actually manages to outshine them.
The Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 DDR3-1866 memory on the other hand finds itself at the opposite end of the spectrum, with a retail value of $80 US. When compared to other DDR3-1866 memory modules the Viper Xtreme Division 2 memory is priced fairly competitively.
...when testing we found that the relaxed CL10 timing of the Ballistix Sport memory made it much slower than the Patriot Gamer 2 memory which uses CL8 timing. Therefore in short we believe that the Patriot Gamer 2 is the best value DDR3-1600 memory money can buy and in fact we would go as far as to say it's the best value 8GB DDR3 memory kit available period.
Certainly and without any discussion, Patriot's Wildfire is one of the best, if not the best SATAIII 120GB SSD. MLC chips in 32nm are used to correct the lack of performance that models with 25nm show in transferring incompressible data. Wildfire shows maximized performance, especially in the most common tasks.
Many of you might heard of Sandforce 2200 series firmware bug, it is well known BSOD issue happening to OCZ Vertex 3 and also SSD of other vendors, Corsair even issue a recall for their early batch of Force series. I didn't face this problem with Patriot Wildfire...the performance is one of the best in the class and close to 240GB's.
I really liked that the Javelin S4 was both a simple plug and play affair for the novice user and still offered powerful features that you do not typically find on a SOHO appliance. I also appreciated that Patriot made sure this appliance supported the latest 3TB drives, something else not all 4 bay NAS products on the market can do today. ...
We were so impressed by the Javelin S4 that we awarded it our coveted Editor's Choice Award for Storage.
In other words, the Pyro is less expensive than some other SSDs on the market yet it still performs considerably well. In fact, the average consumer that is using their SSD for standard computing tasks such as web surfing, gaming and image/video editing would hardly notice any performance difference between the Pyro and more expensive drives.
At $209, the Patriot Pyro is the cheapest 120GB SATA III SSD we have tested. In my opinion, this makes it a great drive because while it did fall behind in quite a few benchmarks, it was able to hold its own against the more expensive drives. In some ways I would even agree that the Patriot Pyro has the best price/performance ratio of the SATA III drives we tested.
With the new SandForce Processor the Patriot was able to beat the Crucial RealSSD. Now I will have to say that the Crucial is using an older Processor, but it is still selling for a higher price than the Patriot PYRO. This is where the Patriot Pyro drive really shines above all other drives at the moment. When you take the performance and pricing and do some quick calculations, you find our quickly that you get a huge return on your investment.â??
Patriot came to the table with the mindset to make a fast drive, and price it aggressively, priced near the cheapest 60GB SATA III drives, and the other models priced similarly. It certainly brings a lot of speed to the table at a price point that, last year, would have bought you half the drive the 60GB Pyro is, a value drive that has the consumer winning in the SSD market, and driving competitors to follow suit. The Pyro makes a very strong case in its performance/price ratio and sets to best the Vertex 3 that has done its best to keep the bar high, but the price-to-performance ratio of the Pyro series may be difficult to beat. This aggressive pricing strategy and the Pyro's fast Sandforce 2281 chip set it up to make a splash!â??
Patriot's performance claims are spot on. In ATTO we saw 552MB/s read and 517MB/s write. This is spot on with what we've seen from other drives using this same controller / flash combination. ...
With an MSRP of just over 200 USD, the Patriot Pyro should soon be below the 200 Dollar price point at Newegg in no time at all. Patriot is known for aggressive pricing and that 200 Dollar point has a stigma about it in the same bang for the buck group of buyers as the Pyro is targeting.
At that price, the 120GB Patriot Pyro comes in at approximately $1.87 per gigabyte, which put it on par with CorsairÃ¢??s Force Series 3 drive and makes it one of the more competitively priced SandForce SF-2200 based drives out there. Looking back at its performance and knowing that the drive is backed by a 3 year warranty, we canÃ¢??t help but recommend the Patriot Pyro. If youÃ¢??re looking for a fast, relatively affordable solid state drive the Patriot Pyro should be on your short list of considerations.
Performance users have different demands than enthusiasts, hence the name Performance Class. An enthusiast desires the best at any cost and will go out of their way to obtain it. A performance user is more frugal and their decision is based on price performance. Being price performance conscious, they are aware of what may be the benefits and disadvantages of their purchase. The Patriot Pyro 120GB SATA III SF-2281 SSD was designed with that in mind. A SandForce SF-2281 Controller, 550/515 MB/s read/write, multiple technologies to ensure reliability which rivals the enthusiast class with affordability.â??
Our experience with compressible data was much better where the ATTO benchmark showed performance that backed up Patriot's max performance specifications of 550MB/s read and 515MB/s write.â?? â??In terms of value, we're looking at roughly $1.88 per usable GB for the 120 GB Pyro drive which is a pretty good value relative to what we see for comparable drives and as compared to the faster Wildfire lineâ?¦â?? â??If the best bang for your buck performance is more your speed, the Pyro is not a bad choiceâ?¦â??
As for the Pyro 120GB Async SATA 3 SSD, congratulations to Patriot for having the foresight to push the Pyro through production as it will prove to be a wise move indeed. The Patriot Pyro has the advantages of being one of the first to offer a low 60GB solution containing the SandForce SF-2281 SATA 3 processor and we guarantee that Patriot will remain very competitive as the companies history has shown. Its performance, build, 3 year standard warranty and packaging are all of a very high levelâ?¦â??
Patriot's Pyro SSD is based on a pairing of a SandForce SF-2281 controller and affordable 25nm asynchronous NAND flash memory; an attractive combination that's becoming increasingly popular. [... ]Patriot's Pyro SSD offers tremendous SandForce performance at a tempting price.
When comparing actual score of 512K sequential write, Wildfire managed to reach around 465MB/s, outperforming the others twofold... bottom line, the potential of the 2.5 Wildfire SSD, or the processor contributed to the fastest testing result on 0Fill as seen from the figure.
In addition, the SandForce controller is able to support blisteringly fast speeds that exceeded 500MB/s according to Patriot, and we verified in our testing that the Wildfire can support read speeds of up to 555MB/s, write speeds of up to 520MB/s and 4k aligned random writes of 85,000 IOPs. This all adds up to the Wildfire boasting best in-class performance, not to mention making it the fastest SSD we have tested.
Patriot has come to market with a drive that delivers excellent performance characteristics with its combination of Sandforce 2281 controller and 32nm MLC NAND in place of the 25nm delivered on the other 22XX-controlled comparison drives. In much of the testing, the lower-capacity Wildfire delivered performance on par with the 240GB Vertex 3 from OCZ.
Our performance rating considers how effective the Patriot Wildfire solid state drive performs in operations against direct competitor storage solutions. For reference, SandForce specifies the SF-2281 with 500 MB/s read and write, which Patriot increases to 555 MB/s read and 520 write maximum speeds for this SSD model. In our storage benchmark tests, the 120GB Patriot Wildfire Solid State Drive (model PW120GS25SSDR) performed at or above this speed, and many other SATA-based SSD's. Our test results proved the Patriot Wildfire was good for delivering 558/518 MBps peak read and writes speeds using ATTO Disk Benchmark SSD speed tests.
Probably the most impressive performance comes from the Crucial and Patriot sticks as the chunky heatsinks on the former and the large copper sections on the latter keep the modules cool, despite the 2000MHz+ speeds.
The four NAS drives can meet the needs of average to advanced users, offering a large storage capacity (up to 12TB using Disk 3TB) combined with good flexibility and expandability.The included software provides a simple configuration even for novice users, and greatly simplifies the backup process.
During our tests we were able to fully test the Torqx 2 and, among the strengths identified, we must
mention the consistency of performance in reading and writing on the pattern of medium and large size, even in extreme situations, where the controller Phison proves more efficient.
The Patriot Wildfire 120GB proved to be a blistering fast competitor. The support for SATA-III and the drive's SandForce SF-2200 processor combined in the Wildfire to create a benchmark shredding drive. The Patriot Wildfire line is proof positive that SSD performance is constantly increasing and that an SSD upgrade can have a great impact on your system's performance, even if you are currently running an SSD that is only a generation or two old.
Get a load of this! Not only is the Patriot Wildfire able to break 1000MB/s read, but it almost does so when writing data as well. What's crazy is we are using a standard motherboard, no add-on RAID controller like the LSI units we test to achieve incredible speeds like this. The Intel Z68 and X68 motherboards are almost as fast as the add-in cards for RAID 0 with a pair of drives.
The Patriot WildFire 120GB SATA 3 SSD is a great entry for Patriot into the SATA 3 SSD arena and performance of the WildFire is found to be excellent.
We do believe that the Wildfire is one of the most well rounded drives to date, in that, it is an upper tier SSD supported by the new standard 3 year warranty and it includes a 3.5â?³ bracket.
Patriot's 555MB/s was a little conservative. I was able to knock of the door of 560MB/s when reading from the drive.
Right out of the gate Patriot released a flagship drive with the highest specification rating available.
We loved the copper, silver and black design which looks awesome in person. It's not all about looks though as the Viper Xtreme give us the option to run at 2000MHz and beyond, scoring well in all of our tests whether it is synthetic, real world, overclocking or thermal performance.
Patriot Memory announces record performance and that's true! Testing the transfer of files in Windows, the key reaches 202 MB/s read and 107.7 MB/s for writing! It takes about 3 seconds to read a DivX type file of 700 MB and 6 seconds to write it.
This memory kit represents the perfect balance between price and performances. In fact, this 8GB memory kit has a price of about 75EUR, a very good price for such amount of memory. We recommend this memory kit to people that want big quantity of memory at a low price.
It is no news that the USB 3.0 flash drives have very good read speeds compared to their USB 2.0 counterparts, but this last Supersonic drive from Patriot Memory really exceeded my expectations in terms of write speeds, reaching with ease 70256 kbytes/s transfer rate, without the need of extra software.
For most, dollar for dollar, the 8GB kit would be a better buy as it will bring with it more performance in real world applications thanks to the extra RAM on tap. Either way, though, you're getting a great kit of RAM for a great price.
What else can we conclude except that this memory has win written all over it? Don't let the mid-range price, or the diminutive heat-spreader fool you, this memory is serious about its mission: maximizing performance per dollar.
In all, the Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 memory is an outstanding product that includes a very robust heatshield, has great performance, plenty of overclocking headroom and is optimized for the Intel 6 series platform.
I can say today that Patriot had made its way onto my key chain with an excellently performing device that I can carry around with me 24/7 and hold pretty much everything I'll need to have with me when it comes to digital data!
The newly released Xporter XT Rage USB Flash drive from Patriot Memory comes with a Quad Channel technology which is not a marketing gimmick, it really enhances the product read and write performances.
I'm more than happy to recommend this drive to anyone who is looking for a USB drive as the write speeds really are second to none, the design of the drive will help it to live longer unlike others I have used in the past.
The Patriot Xporter XT Rage proved to be one of the fastest drives we have seen with 29MB/s read and 26MB/s write in ATTO. With these speeds you will not have any trouble transferring files or even watching HD videos from the drive itself.
I have to say that using Inferno in my system was great experience and pleasure. I would like to notice that running applications such as Word 2007 and Excel 2007 took less than one second after start command was launched when we used Inferno.

Isn¡¦t a product that allows for greater productivity/time always better? We think YES!
This Patriot Xporter XT is a great drive
as far as I can see. It is extremely fast,
durable with its rubber coating and
has a large capacity of 4GB.
This drive is fantastic and I would
whole-heartedly recommend this flash
drive to anyone who may be looking to
buy such a device.
Patriot modules offer a solid performance
at their rated speed.
Even more, they significantly exceed
their specified timings...
Looking at the current pricing landscape
for high performance memory across all
brands... these PC2-8500 modules from
Patriot are a real steal.
With the current price drops, Patriot
definitely gets in top memory
to buy. Its 800 MHz and 4-4-4-12
work great and if this is not
enough for you, you have the
chance to make it work at 1000
MHz at 5-5-5-15. They dont call it
Extreme performance for nothing.
"... on our tests we could put it working at
1219 MHz maintaining its default voltage
(2.3 V ), so we are talking about 153 MHz
above DDR2-1066. Increasing voltage to
2.4 V we were able to put this kit running
at 1280 MHz."
"... perfect for overclockers that want to
achieve a higher overclocking level with
their systems... "
"With an affordable price of about 30EUR,
the Patriot's Xporter XT was convicing. The
only down side we could find was the
limited performance with the SiSoft Sandra
Write test for data-exchange, which is well
compensated by the extremely high performance
in all the other tests. We actually
deliver close to 2GB when we claim 2GB. Patriot
Memory receives the Computerbase.de
'Hardware Hammer'. "
"From our test results it's true to say that more
expensive doesn't necessarily mean better quality
or higher performance. In fact in the case of the two
modules we tested, the Patriot Extreme is by far
cheaper than Kingston's HyperX range and offers
slighly better results. The performance and speed
of the Patriot modules was outstanding, and with
their overclocking capabilities, at a mere £170 for a
2GB kit, Patriot have certainly set the standard
when it comes to high quality, high performance
ram at a very competitive price."
It's always a nice benefit when you purchase a
product that has hidden potential not listed on
the packaging or features. The PC2-6400LLK
Extreme Performance memory is one of those
particular products that is an example of a good
cost-benefit ratio. You go in to the store or online
to buy some nicely priced DDR2 memory and get
the same modules found in their PC2-8500 built
in to the their LLK series. Whether you're an avid
overclocker or regular PC user, this allows you to
use the memory in some newer upgrades in
The Xporter XT surprised everyone here by coming out top in all our ReadyBoost tests on Windows Vista, it even outdid our previous leader by over 1000 points in the read speed tests by gaining a score of over 9000
"JEDEC standards are intended to
ensure steady functionality of memory

Patriot once again brings a solid competitor to the market space, giving the consumer a nice alternative to the well known brands that also looks good while doing it with the all black heat spreaders!... (more)
The Patriot Memory Extreme Performance 2GB DDR500 DC Kit is very overclockable RAM. Furthermore, it comes with a premium aluminum heat spreader. This pair of DDR PC4000 is able to run at 500MHz... (more)
Patriot Memory's PC2-6400 with 4-4-4-12 timings is some of the fastest PC2-6400 memory I have ever seen. Of course it helps when you start out with a great motherboard like the EVGA 680i. The PC2-6400 delivers rock solid...(more)
As for practical tests, the Patriot PDC22G8000+XBLK modules proved to be the fastest among all the memory kits included in this review.
They stopped just a little short of 1067MHz at 4-4-4-12 timings, but notched 1145MHz at 5-5-5-15 timings. Note that the Patriot PDC22G8000+XBLK kit remained stable at the highest frequency (among the tested memory kits).
Patriot Memory continues to impress with their overclocking and budget friendly memory modules. For most people, hitting just shy of PC2-8000 is more than enough, especially when you're only paying for PC2-5300's. A little more voltage and we probably could have broken it too!
So overall .. I'm really impressed with the PDC22G5300LLK memory DIMMs from Patriot. This lovely DIMM couple is dreadfully fast, very stable, and extremely overclockable with the right mobo and CPU. Highly recommended
We were able to run up to 250 MHz (DDR500) using 2.5-3-2-5 latencies, an excellent result. Increasing the memory latencies we were able to put this kit running at 270 MHz (DDR540), a clock almost 25% higher than the maximum clock rate labeled by the manufacturer (216.5 MHz/DDR433). Outstanding.
Another review draws to an end and Patriot Memory has churned up a kit that matches the performance of the big leaguers while keeping its price at a very affordable range. Sticking to the stock timings, we were able to push the kit up to 260 MHz which is respectable for the Samsung UCCC.
Patriot does a nice showing for modules rated at PC2-5300 (667MHz), climbing to 833MHz while maintaining timings is no small feat....t appears as though Patriot not only brings a cost effective 2GB kit to market, they bring one that can compete as well!
The Patriot PDC22G8000+XBLK Rev.2 is truly remarkable DDR2 memory, and we can only hope that more vendors in the memory industry follow this route and release truly awesome lower-latency memory like this. Not only are the PDC22G8000+XBLK Rev.2 modules able to scale to high speeds, they do so while running fairly tight timings as far as DDR2 is concerned.
Users who do want 2GB of system memory will be happy to know that they do not have to sacrifice much speed for the increased memory capacity. There are quite a few 2GB high speed memory kits available, and the latest set from Patriot Memory we tested in this review is certainly quick.
If you are looking for a good performance 2 GB kit with intentions of overclocking your system, these sticks are the real deal. I couldn’t even push my system far enough to make the memory miss a step, but what I was able to pull out of it was quite impressive.
You will find this kit very competitive in the high-speed DDR2 arena. For most PC2-5300 kits, the 4-4-4-12 latency timings are among the best seen. Add to the fact that the kit is very capable of hitting 800Mhz, and its overclocker value and appeal is near perfect. All of this matched with a very reasonable price and a lifetime warranty makes the Patriot PC2-5300LLK a very solid investment.
I was very impressed with the performance of the Patriot memory. The memory performed flawlessly all the way up to 275MHz. For a 2GB kit, 275MHz is amazing. For any size kit, 275MHz, 1:1 isn't very shabby. Overall Patriot has put together a great kit just waiting for you to overclock it.
What can I say? This Patriot memory literally kicks ass! Granted, I'm doing the testing on a stripped down review rig with only the bare essentials installed, and it was for all you AMD fans an Intel Northwood processor; nevertheless, I was overjoyed with the results.
Patriot PDC22G8000ELK DDR2-1000 memory is probably the most versatile set of DDR2 DIMMs uncovered thus far. The low latencies should keep AMD AM2 users happy once that CPU launches, and its ability to clock sky high will keep current Intel users satisfied as well.
Being able to run DDR600 is a great feeling. And that is actually what Patriot did. It is always a good thing to be able to lower that CPU multiplier and crank up the HTT to get max performance. With Patriot offering the end-user a great set of ram makes all the above possible.
The only other vendor that offers comparable figures is the newcomer Patriot Memory with its DDR2-1000 memory modules. With maximum data transfer rates of 8.6 GB/sec for reading, both of these vendors proved unbeatable, and no other offerings achieved genuine memory speeds of 500 MHz.
Overall, Patriot Extreme Performance (EP Plus) 2GB SD card is the fastest and huge capacity SD card that I ever owned. With the high speed transfer rate up to 133X, you can save a lot of time for it during the read and write activity. You will get what you paid for, the huge size, the high transfer speed and also life time warranty by Patriot Memory.
The Patriot's DDR2 PC6400 memory modules are very overclockable RAM. Furthermore, it comes with a premium aluminum heat spreader. This pair of DDR2 PC6400 is able to run at 800MHz with the timing of 3-4-4-8 even at default CPU speed.
Overall, the Patriot PC3200LLK 2GB kit is a good investment given the few 2GB choices. The memory looks great with the matching red aluminum heatspreaders and the red PCB. The memory will not win any overclocking contests, but its affordable price tag definitely deserves notice.
Patriot is no longer a common name in the enthusiast crowd. Their reputation of having high quality enthusiast memory spread as fast as a nasty rash, which in this case, is a very good thing. Their XBL line of memory targets overclockers and hardware enthusiasts. (more)
Patriot PDC1G5600ELK does really offer the best of both worlds. It is able to scale fairly high with tight timings hitting a nice 247 MHz mark, loosen those timings up a bit and the memory achieves a remarkable 674 MHz!
Previously, we have reviewed and tested a number of DDR2 modules ranging from relatively well-known manufacturers to not-so-well-known manufacturers. In this review, we take a look at a new comer into the DDR2 enthusiast market that has a patriotic theme with it...
I would highly recommend the Patriot PC2-5600+ XBLK modules for use on the C19 chipset based motherboards and may do as well or better on i955X chipset based boards. The end user can use extremely low timing values and achieve or exceed bandwidth close to running the maximum speed that is achievable with slack timing values as seen in this review and others published here on Xtreme Resources.
Out of all the DDR2 I've gotten to test, I feel the Patriot Memory modules tested here today offers the most value to users of a broader range. I can say that I'd recommend this memory to people looking for fast, stable, and high performing memory.
They have brought to market a module that will maintain pace with the best of them, and even treat you to a performance gain (however slight) at stock speeds. Bravo PDP Systems, Bravo, for doing your homework and not flopping on intro.
All of this adds up to Top Performance and Top Value, which is high praise for this Patriot memory. Our test modules actually performed much better than these base settings, reaching a stable DDR630 at 2.5-4-3-7 timings at 2.9V on the AMD Athlon 64 platform.
Patriot's version of low latency memory certainly gave me a nice first impression. It has been quite a success and provides tough competition to top rated companies and manufacturers. For Patriot's first few lines of memory in the highly competitive market, it sure performed exceedingly well.
I easily hit 280HTT 2.5-3-3-9 which was the highest stable clock I've reached. It is never-the-less always impressive when PC3200 memory can go 1:1 at DDR600 speeds. Patriot's TCCD offering is the cheapest on the market and is worth the small investment.
Patriot...didn't disappoint us with such capable modules. CAS 2.5 is where TCCD modules shine, and Patriot PDC1G3200+XBLK is no exception. At these moderately tight timings, they managed to hit 275MHz, which is 25MHz higher than what Patriot have rated them to run at.
With the success of the XBL, Patriot is following up with their new PDC22G5600+XBLK DDR2 memory. Boasting 3-2-2-4 timings at 533mhz, this new part has been tested to hit 700MHz at 4-3-3-12 for a PC5600 rating. This should be some of the fastest ddr2 available today.
The Patriot memory on test today is every bit the match of competition, yet costs substantially less. Considering how close the various TCCD contenders are in performance, it is small wonder that the Patriot's low price point and superlative performance gain it our top award, the Editor's Choice.
Putting this new RAM into my PC at stock was an upgrade unto itself. This is some serious ram. I would highly recommend this RAM for overclockers. It can reach eXtremely high speeds while maintaining incredibly low and tight timings.
We can confirm that Patriot currently offers the speediest DDR2 DIMMs by far. Not only did the 1 GB Patriot DIMMs work at DDR2-533 at sensationally fast CL3-2-2-4 timingsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦.At DDR2-710 we still recorded timings of CL4-3-3-12.
Maybe Patriot Memory have hit on something with their cherry red heatspreaders! The performance of the Patriot PDC1G3200+XBLK Dual-channelÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦.memory kit scored near the top of the charts in every benchmark, impressing us with its consistency
The PDP PatriotÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s DDR2 4200+ memory module is a very overclockable especially at the aggressive timing. As for the performance, with the slightly lower the CAS Latency, the RAM was able to hit 334MHz which is equal to DDR 668. That was an excellent result.
These modules kicked some serious butt. I was able to reach PC4000 on a rather tight timing - 2-3-3-5 to be exact. Once again, Patriot Memory does not disappoint. These modules are priced slightly lower than the competition which will be an added plus for those on a tight budget.
These Patriot Memory are the lowest latency modules we've seen to date and they performed well above any expectations we may have had.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â What really stood out to us was the overclocking performance with low latencies, where the modules easily topped our comparison chips by a decent margin.
One such company is Patriot, and their new series of memory Patriot Extreme . You may be wondering how good is this memory? Well with lack of better words, we'd like to say its the best we have ever tested on a socket 939 platform...
In terms of overclocking, the Patriot PC2-4200 DDR2 XBL memory does extremely well for itself. At the moment, it is among the best overclocking DDR-2 DIMM's we've tested! We were able to hit a maximum speed of 672 MHz with 4-3-3-12 memory timings.
TheÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â PDP PatriotÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â 1GB Dual Channel DDR400 memory module will meet the needs of most enthusiasts. These dual channel ram are able to run at tight timing which is the best and basic requirement for a good memory module.
I would like to single out Patriot XBL memory, as this is a universal solution combining the features of both other memory types. It should be a good choice for almost any overclocker. 285MHz is a phenomenal overclocking achievement. It would correspond to DDR570 or PC4560, if it ever existed.
