Patriot has decided to come up with its own solution for the limitations of storage spaces with its launch of the Supersonic line of 3.0 USBs. Three new versions of USB 3.0 flash drives were added to this Supersonic line. These include the Supersonic RAGE XT 128 GB, Supersonic Boost XT 128 GB and the Supersonic Pulse 128 GB.
We have so many devices that we access data from these days. It is not just our computer anymore. Many people are using their smartphone or tablet as their only device for computing. While these devices can do what many people want them do they are limited at how much storage space they actually have. Wireless storage is nothing new, network attached storage devices have been out for quite a long time, but they also lack one thing…portability. This is where Patriot’s Gauntlet Node Wireless Enclosure comes in. This enclosure supports 2.5-inch hard drives, is small enough to take with you, has its own power source and allows you to stream content to up to 8 different devices wirelessly. Read on and to see if this is the device you need at add to your mobile arsenal.
I am a huge fan of special or limited edition memory kits. Memory has sort of been boring the past year as not much has really changed and products like SSD’s are being chosen as the main component to speed up your system when it comes to an upgrade. The kit we are taking a look at today from Patriot was made for Intel’s Extreme Masters gaming tournaments. The kit features a very unique and stylish design and is available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB kits up to 2133MHz in either dual or quad channel configurations. The kits are tested to work with Intel 6 and 7 series chipsets, are XMP certified and have a lifetime warranty. Read on as we take a look at this limited edition memory!
A little over a year ago we took a look at our first Patriot Viper Xtreme memory kit in their 6GB DDR3-2000 kit. These kits are just awesome! Each module in the kit features 6 grams of copper at its core paired with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum outer shield, which not only is going to keep the modules cool, but makes for a pretty cool look. Today we are taking a look a the Division 4 kit of the Viper Xtreme Series, which is designed specifically for Intel’s X79 platform and 2nd generation Core™ processors. We are checking out the PXQ316G1866ELQK kit, which is a 16GB kit running at 1866MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. Read on as we take these for a ride.
Our friends over at Patriot Memory have sent us one of their latest memory kits, the Division 4 Viper Xtreme DDR3 Quad Channel Memory Kit. This 16GB kit is a PC3-15000 kit so it is going to be running at 1866MHz. The timings are 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. The Division 4 series kits are designed specifically for Intel’s X79 platform and 2nd generation Core™ processors. Like all Viper Xtreme kits these featurethe 6 gram copper core and aircraft-grade aluminum heatspreaders. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video.
When Patriot started to release their SATA 6GB/s solid state drives they started with 2 drives. The Wildfire that was more on the high-end with Toshiba toggle memory and the Pyro which was the more consumer-focused drive that used asynchronous flash memory. Now Patriot has the Pyro SE, which will be using Micron 25nm synchronous memory. Using synchronous memory we should see better performance when it comes to incompressible data. Today we will be taking the 120GB version through the paces, read on to see how the drive performs.
Today we are unboxing another solid state drive. This time it is the Patriot Pyro SE, which is Patriot’s 3rd SATA 6GB/s drive. Their Wildfire drive uses Toshiba toggle memory, the original Pryo uses asynchronous memory and this drive will be using synchronous memory. This drive still features the SandForce SF-2281 controller and has read and write speeds of 550MB/s and 520MB/s respectively. Read on to check out our unboxing and overview of the 120GB version.
As many of you know our friends over at Patriot were nice enough to send us over 48GB of their 8GB G2 Series single modules. That is six 8GB modules, giving us a total of 48GB of DDR3! It is really crazy to think about that much memory in a system, it is close to a small solid state drive. We’ve had a lot of fun with all of this memory over the past couple of weeks and yes we installed all 48GB in a single system. Read on to check all the fun we’ve had with this memory!
Have you ever held 48GB of DDR3 in your hand? Maybe you have but probably not in only 6 modules! That is right these are 8GB single modules. They are Patriot’s G2 Series which run at 1333MHz with timings of 9-9-9-24. Patriot is one of the few companies making 8GB single module units so let’s open the 6 kits we received and see what they are all about. Read on to check out our unboxing video and see what we will be doing with this 48GB of DDR3!
Patriot is getting in to the SATA 6Gb/s game with the other big players in the solid state market with their Wildfire and Pyro solid state drives. Last year we were very impressed with the Inferno solid state drive from Patriot. Today we are taking look at Patriot’s Wildfire drive which sports the SandForce SF-2281 drive controller with Toshiba 32nm MLC NAND. It boast sequential read and write speeds of 555MB/s and 520MB/s respectively and max random write IOPS up to 85,000 (4K aligned). Let’s see how it performs against other 6Gb/s drives we have recently tested.
