DDR3 has really taken off in the past year and it only seemed like a little while ago 1333MHz DDR3 was the standard, but now it seems like 1600MHz DDR3 is now. While the 1600MHz memory is fine for most people us enthusiasts want the fastest memory possible for our system to run at its best. Today we will be looking at a very fast memory kit from Patriot. It is their Viper Xtreme PC3-16000 (2000MHz) 6GB triple channel kit with timings of 9-10-9-27. Let’s take a look at this kit and see what it can do!
We just started working with Patriot with our review of the Xporter XT Rage 32B Flash Drive. Well today we have another storage product from them, the Inferno 120GB Solid State Drive. This solid state drive is based off the SandForce SF-1200 controller. If you have been following solid state drives over the past year you know that the SandForce controller is what everyone is using in their new drives. This drive boasts read speeds up to 285MB/s, write speeds up to 275MB/s, native TRIM support and integrated DuraClass Technology. Let’s check out the Inferno and see how it performs compared to other SandForce-based drives.
The USB flash drive has not really changed much. We have seen all types of flash drives over the past few year, ones that are practically indestructible and other that are waterproof, but the technology in the drive itself really has not changed. Patriot has decided to change this with the Xporter XT Rage line of USB flash drives. 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. Let’s take a look…
