Patriot Viper VPR100 and VPN100 SSDs Pictured

Patriot showed off many new M.2 NVMe SSDs at its Computex 2019 booth, led by two Viper series models that caught our eyes, the VPR100 and VPN100. While technically an M.2-2280 drive, the Viper VPR100 features a chunky heatsink that makes the drive wider than 22 mm. This could be a problem if you're trying to install it in an M.2 slot positioned between two PCIe slots. The heatsink is studded with RGB LEDs. The drive is based on the Phison E12 controller and offers sequential transfer rates of up to 3450 MB/s reads, and up to 3000 MB/s writes. The Viper VPN100 is practically the same drive, but with a heatsink that sticks to the 22 mm width limit. You can run both drives without their heatsinks.

Nice looking drives, also nice to see some other mfgrs FINALLY catching up to Sammy & WD speed-wise..... now if we only could know the prices.......instead of having to go elsewhere & search for them...

Well the 'Zon has the 1TB VPN100 listed at $179, which is a a good bit lower than the ^^ competition :D
