Patriot entered the DDR4 arena with their Viper 4 Series DDR4 memory. We reviewed both a quad channel kit for X99 and a dual channel kit for Z170. Now Patriot has unveiled the Viper Elite DDR4 memory, which is set to be their best and highest performance DDR4 memory available. This memory is available in dual channel 8GB and 16GB kits with speeds ranging from 2133 MHz all the way up 3200 MHz. It also features one of the coolest looking heatspreaders that we’ve seen in a long time! The kit we are taking a look at today is the PVE416G300C6KRD which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit with speeds of 3000 MHz. It has official timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V and is designed to perform best on Intel Z170 systems. Let’s get this memory in our test system and see what it can do!
When Intel Z170 motherboards came out we were introduced to USB 3.1. USB 3.1 doubles the speed of USB 3.0 from 5 gbps to 10 gbps! With all of these new motherboards offering USB 3.1 connectivity we are starting to see many new USB 3.1 devices. Today we are taking a look at Patriot’s latest USB 3.1 flash drive, the Supersonic Magnum 2. This drive has advertised read and write speeds of 400 MB/s and 300 MB/s respectively, making it one of the fastest flash drives currently available. Today we will be taking a look at the 256GB version, which happens to be the lowest capacity that Patriot offers. Let’s take a look and see just how fast it is!
As our multimedia demands increase along side the quality and subsequent file sizes we are starting to need better solutions for transporting large amounts of data. The most straight forward solution is to use faster nand and interfaces in a traditional USB flash drive. Enter Patriot and their memory expertise with three new USB flash drive products.
Many of us have small form drives that we would like to access outside of our desktops or laptops. Or perhaps you have a particular SSD that you really like that you would like to use as an external drive. These situations are typical of when you could really use an external drive enclosure in particular the Gauntlet 4.
While the first round of Viper gaming accessories was successfully launched Patriot has been hard at work creating their next expanded and more developed line of products. While none of these products are finished or ready for production it is cool to see where they are headed and get an idea of what is coming.
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.
