Patriot, a leading manufacturer of computer memory, USB/flash memory, SSDs, mobile accessories, and gaming peripherals today announced the Viper Elite DDR4 memory intended for the latest Intel 100 series platform.
Earlier this year we took a look at our first Viper 4 DDR4 memory kit from Patriot. That kit was a quad-channel kit designed for the X99 platform. Now that Intel’s Z170 chipset is here we have dual-channel DDR4 which we’ve seen to be more stable at higher frequencies. Patriot has sent us one of their latest Viper 4 DDR4 kits which is an 8GB dual-channel kit that runs at 3400 MHz! With official timings of 16-18-18-36 at 1.35V the PV48G340C6K kit is set to perform quite well on Z170 systems. On top of the fast speeds the memory kit features a custom-designed heatspreader that is black and red that will match many popular motherboards out there. Let’s get this memory installed and see what it can do!
Patriot, a leading manufacturer of computer memory, USB/flash memory, SSDs, and mobile accessories, today announced the extension of their Viper 4 series of DDR4 memory with a new 3600MHz dual kit designed for the latest Intel Skylake core processor utilizing the 100 series platform.

Patriot has just announced the development of a Type-C USB flash drive for the new Macbook, Google Chromebook Pixel and other Type-C equipped notebook and systems. It seems we will start seeing many Type-C devices come out this summer as USB Type-C connections start showing up on more devices.
Patriot is no newcomer to memory and their Viper line has been around as long as I can remember. The Viper 4 series sits as the mid-range offering in their DDR4 memory line with the Viper Extreme sitting at the high-end and the Signature Line being more the entry level. We first got a glimpse of the Viper 4 series back in January at CES and now we have a kit of our own to test out. The kit we are taking a look at today is the PV416G300C6QK kit, which is a 16GB kit with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V. The memory kit is of course a quad-channel kit designed for Intel’s X99 chipset and has some pretty nice black and red heatspreaders that not only will keep the memory cool, but will look quite good in your system. Let’s see what this memory kit can do!
We have not seen a new solid state drive from Patriot in a while. Over the past couple years they sort of took a step back from the SSD industry and focused more on flash memory products and mobile accessories. Well it looks like they are back full a line of solid state drives. Today we will be taking a look at their Ignite drive, which sits at the top of the pack. This drive is powered by the Phison’s latest S10 controller and offers sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 545 MB/s respectively. The Corsair Neutron XT drive, which took home a perfect 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award is also based on the same Phison S10 controller so we are expecting good things from the Ignite. Will it perform? Read on as we find out!
If you own any type of mobile device you know keeping it charged is a pain. You lose the charging cable that came with the device, that cable breaks, or you lose the wall adapter. It just happens and it is annoying. Well Patriot who we typically know for their memory and solid state drives has an easy way for you to charge your devices that makes it much more convenient. The product I am talking about is the FUEL iON kit which is comprised of a phone case and charging stand. The thing that makes this kit different from other charging devices is that it features a magnetic power transfer pad that not only will charge your device without a “real” connection, but will also hold your device securely in place.

Patriot was showing a wide variety of new products at CES this year. The one product that really caught our eye was the new Ignite solid state drive lineup. These new drives are definitely targeted at the enthusiast and gamer.
Patriot’s upcoming Torch solid state drives have been listed on Amazon ahead of their official launch. These performance 2.5-inch solid state drives are 7 mm thick, have SATA 6GB/s interfaces and come in two capacities (for now) 120 GB and 240 GB.
