Patriot Injects Inferno Series with Additional SSDs

PC enthusiasts looking for higher capacities in an SSD now have a few more options from Patriot Memory. The company revealed the new drives Tuesday, reporting that its Inferno Series of MLC NAND-based SSDs now have 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB versions. Previously the Inferno line consisted of 100GB and 200GB SSDs.

"Designed around the SandForce SF-1222 SSD processor, the Inferno series delivers incredible performance while also providing superior reliability and longevity utilizing SandForce DuraClass technology," the company said. "Inferno's blazing performance of 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write (sequential) are more exceptional when the 24K IOPS (write) at 4K file sizes are considered."

All three drives come packed with a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch adapter plate for desktop chassis installation and a 3-year warranty. Other features include TRIM support, Intelligent Recycling that improves management of free space, Intelligent Read Disturb Management, Native Command Queuing (NCQ), DuraWrite for extending the life of the SSD and more.

Currently the drives are not listed on Newegg and Amazon, however the 200GB version retails for $679 and the 100GB version retails for $329.

    Love the OCZ sticker "MY SSD IS FASTER THAN YOUR HDD"

    I have a single 100GB Inferno and it feels even a bit snappier than the 3 x 500GB WD Blacks in RAID 0 I used to use as my OS drive. Not dramatically, but a little quicker.

    To people who are used to single 7200rpm drive as an OS drive would be blown away IMO

    My buddy has 3 Infernos in RAID 0 and that machine feels absolutely insane.

    Great SSDs, we are both very pleased with them.
