Patriot Memory updates its SSD lineup with the release of the Pyro SE SSD series, which utilizes synchronous MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash memory versus asynchronous MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash memory.
Patriot Memory Pyro SE SSD is a 2.5-inch form-factor based on the SATA 6.0 Gb/s interface and the SandForce SF-2281 controller. The Pyro SE will be offered in 60 GB, 120 GB and 240 GB capacities. In addition, the drives include DuraClass, DuraWrite, TRIM support and comes with a 3-year warranty. The Pyro SE's performance is expected to deliver sequential read and write speeds of 550 MB/s and 520 MB/s, along with a maximum 4K random write of 85,000 IOPS.
"The Patriot Memory Pyro SE will offer increased performance while still maintaining our aggressive pricing strategy”, says William Lai, Patriot Memory’s Product Manager. “The Patriot Memory Pyro SE will be the ultimate choice for performance users looking to increase productivity while not bankrupting their budget.”
Though pricing has not been announced, users should expect the pricing for the drives to be close to the current pricing of the Pyro SSD drives: 60 GB - $110, 120 GB - $205, and 240 GB - $440. Read more on the new Patriot Memory's Pyro SE SSDs at the product page.
