Sources indicate that Patriot has prepared another line-up of solid state drives. In addition to already released Inferno and Wildfire series the new one is named Pyro. The new line-up include three models: 60GB, 120GB and 240GB.
All of them use SandForece SF-2281 controller and MLC NAND flash memory. These 2.5.inch drives are specified to have the following performance numbers : read/write rates for two senior models are 550/520 MB/s. The 60GB model is a bit slower — 515/490 MB/s. Same goes for 4K randoms: 85 000 IOPS for two senior models and 80 000 IOPS for junior model.
The novelties are equated with SATA 3 interface and three-year manufacturer warranty. Patriot Pyro series SSDs should become available really soon although price info is not disclosed.
