    Patriot Memory, a global pioneer in high-performance memory, NAND flash, storage and enthusiast computer products, today announces the new Wildfire series solid-state drives powered by a new SandForce SSD processor. The Patriot Wildfire series obliterates expectations of storage devices and delivers enterprise-class performance to consumer desktops and notebooks.

    Storage bottlenecks are a thing of the past with the Patriot Wildfire series SSD. The new SandForce SF-2200 SSD processor enables the Patriot Wildfire series to shatter previous performance records with up to breathtakingly-fast 500 MB/s sequential read and write speeds backed by a SATA 6.0 Gb/s interface.

    "The Patriot Wildfire is the fastest SSD drive we have ever released to the public," says Les Henry, Patriot Memory's Vice President of Engineering. "SandForce has done a fantastic job engineering the SF-2200 SSD processor and combined with our research and development, we are able to further tweak the design and maximize performance with the processor and our flash memory."

    "We are happy to see Patriot Memory is expanding their current SandForce Driven product line with the new SandForce SF-2200 and SF-2100 Client SSD Processors," said Kent Smith, Sr. Director of Product Marketing of SandForce. "Patriot has won numerous awards and we anticipate they will win even more with our latest generation 6.0 Gb/s client processor."

    The Patriot Wildfire series feature a standard 2.5-inch form factor for compatibility with notebooks and select desktops. A 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket is included with the Patriot Wildfire for compatibility with standard hard drive mounting.

    Expect the Patriot Wildfire to ship in Q2 2011 in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities.

    I do hope Patriot has cleaned up their act and these drives don't have the insane failure rate of the TORQX series.

    Now if only we could keep SSD's from deteriorating after 10,000 writes wed be in business. One of two reasons I wont buy one.

    I was looking through newegg last night at SSD's and noticed that OCZ seems to fail completely with all lines of their SSD's. High failure rate. Seems like something they'd want to fix.
