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.
Today we have another unboxing video for you! Remember if you like these videos let us know by liking the video on YouTube or leaving us a comment. We are unboxing the Patriot Wildfire 120GB Solid State Drive! This drive features the SandForce SF-2200 controller paired with qualified MLC NAND flash for best performance, value and reliability. The Wildfire boasts speeds of 555MB/s read and 540MB/s write! Read on for more information and to see our unboxing video!
Well it is that time again, time to give something away to you, our readers! This time our friends over at Patriot Memory were nice enough to hook us up with an Xporter XT Rage 32GB Flash Drive. These drives feature a Quad Channel configuration, data is intelligently managed and transferred simultaneously to 4 NAND chips resulting in vastly enhanced performance, particularly write speeds: Rage improves on traditional USB 2.0 Flash Drives to offer up to 27MB/s read and 25MB/s write transfer speeds. So how can you win this awesome flash drive? You will need to complete these 3 tasks…
We’ve all seen different branded kits of memory, from memory that has the strangest heatsink design to SLI-ready memory. But what a lot of people haven’t really encountered before is AMD Ready memory. Today we’ll be looking at one of the few AMD Black Edition Ready Memory Kits, which work great with an AMD based system. Read on further to find out what unique AMD only software we used to help us along with the review.
USB 3.0 has really been catching on. Every new motherboard coming out has USB 3.0 connectivity and almost all the new cases have front-mounted USB 3.0 ports. USB 3.0 is 10 times faster than USB 2.0, but the only devices that can truly take advantage of this speed is solid state drives and flash drives. Today we will be looking at a 32GB USB flash drive from Patriot dubbed, “Supersonic”. Let’s check it out!
The living room is the new battleground for old and new entertainment companies. Patriot’s PBO Core is one of the latest devices battling for position next to your Blu-ray player and game console.

We’ll take an in-depth look to see if the PBO Core can be your core multimedia playing device.
A little while ago we took a look at Patriot’s Viper Xtreme triple channel memory that is designed for Intel X58 systems. Today we are checking out the Viper Xtreme Division 2 Edition memory which is designed for Intel’s 2nd generation “Sandy Bridge” Core processors. This memory has been rigorously tested and validated on the Intel 6 Series platform to achieve maximum performance and stability. The Division 2 memory has all of the same features as the original Viper Xtreme memory like the 6 gram copper core and aircraft-grade aluminum heatspreaders. Today we will be putting the 8GB DDR3-1866 kit to the test.
Patriot Memory signed on as a sponsor of ThinkComputers this past year and they have quite a selection of different products. At CES 2011 they showed us that they are revamping many of these product lines. They also showed us a new product line that we really did not expect from them. Read on to see what it is…
