Patriot Memory's SSD lineup for 2019-20 includes two new SATA SSDs to cater to the mainstream market, the P200 and Burst. Both drives are built in the 2.5-inch form-factor, with SATA 6 Gbps interface. The Burst is available in capacities of up to 960 GB, and is powered by a Phison S11 controller with DRAM cache. The drive offers sequential transfer rates of up to 560 MB/s reads, with up to 540 MB/s writes, and endurance of up to 835 TBW, benefiting from the drive's overprovisioning. The P200 is an interesting drive, in that it comes in two controller options. Capacities 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB ship with Silicon Motion SM2258XT DRAM-less controller, while the 2 TB version is powered by a Maxiotech MAS0902A. On offer are up to 530 MB/s reads, up to 460 MB/s writes, and up to 1 PBW endurance.
