Patriot Launches 60GB, 120GB and 240GB Inferno Series Sold-State Drives

Patriot Memory, a global pioneer in high-performance memory, NAND flash and computer peripheral solutions, today announced the immediate availability of three new capacities to the award winning Inferno Series of SSDs. The Inferno 60GB, 120GB and 240GB drives build upon the earlier 100GB and 200GB product offerings found in the family.

Designed around the SandForce SF-1200 SSD processor, the Inferno series delivers incredible performance while also providing superior reliability and longevity utilizing SandForce DuraClass technology. Inferno’s blazing performance of 285 MB/s read and 275 MB/s write (sequential) are more exceptional when the 24K IOPS (write) at 4K file sizes are considered. The result is a series of SSD optimized for enthusiast use as a primary system boot drive.

“The Inferno series of SSDs are the fastest and most exciting that Patriot has yet brought to the market,” states Les Henry, Vice President of Engineering at Patriot. “Our Inferno series has been well received and reviewed. We are excited to expand the product family with the introduction of the new larger capacity Inferno drives as well as the new 60GB capacity option. With the addition of the 60GB capacity drive, enthusiasts can enjoy the blistering performance of the Inferno SSD at a more affordable price point making it ideal as a boot drive in a high performance system.”

Patriot Inferno SSDs are paired with specially screened MLC NAND Flash to deliver class leading performance, include a 2.5” to 3.5” adapter plate for easy installation into desktop computer chassis and are covered by a 3 year warranty. SandForce DuraClass technology provides enhanced endurance and reliability by an average of 20x over traditional SSD controllers through innovative write technology and Wear Leveling.

And the price is "surprisingly" missing again... At least they've stopped writing rubbish MTBF values...

what does Raid 0 have to do with the Sata type? every sata port has its own sata 2 interface.. so adding more drives wont do anything to it. its 300mbps per a port.

Why so? This is SATA, not USB. Bandwidth is not shared between ATA channels like it's shared between USB ports.

Well, with so fast drives, SATA2 is becoming slightly saturated already...

SF1222 doesn't use over 285 MB/s. So it's not that SATA 6 Gb/s is going to make this faster.

Who the hell gives a crap about any SSD from any manufacturer over 32GB. There is absolutely no reason even to get anything else than RAID-0 4 Sata-III 4x16GB. So, where are the top of the line performing low space SSD driver selling less than 50$ a piece at absolute maximum.

Why would anyone be so stupid to pay for anything with more space in ANY scenario while you can get 2TB drive at 100$ to store the actual data, if space is required ???

god damn marketing crap..

Maybe because people don't want to use RAID on a chipset nor buy a RAID controller? All RAID does is add STR anyway, it doesn't change the greatest advantage of SSDs which is great access time.
