PNY Technologies (PNY) considered one of the worldwide leaders in consumer electronics market and flash memory products, has launched one of the smallest, pocket-sized design SSD product to enter the global tech market, the ELITE Portable Solid State Drive (SSD).
Over the past year we’ve seen a new generation of solid state drives enter the market taking speeds and form factor to the next level. These are of course the PCI-Express M.2 NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) drives.

Patriot has presented us with their first ever PCI-Express M.2 solid state drive, the Hellfire. It is based off of Phison’s E7 NVMe controller and comes in 240GB and 480GB versions.
