I think that most of us understand the benefits that a SSD brings to the table when compared to a traditional HDD. The only reason most of us don’t take advantage of a SSD is that they are still too expensive for the storage capacity they offer. Patriot has a new SSD that is seriously fast for those who are ready to upgrade.
The new SSD is called the Inferno and it uses specially screened MLC NAND chips to deliver the best performance possible. The SSD is offered in 100GB and 200GB capacities and uses a SandForce controller with DuraClass technology.
DuraClass promises to enhance the SSDs endurance and reliability by 20x compared to traditional SSD controllers. Patriot claims that the Inferno offers 285MB/s read speeds and 275MB/s writes. Pricing on the SSDs is unannounced at this time.
