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.

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!
