Patriot Viper Announces VP4300 M.2 Gen4 SSD Series

Patriot Memory's gaming brand, Viper Gaming, today announced the VP4300 series M.2 NVMe SSDs that take advantage of the PCI-Express 4.0 x4 bus. The drives combine Innogrit IG5236 controllers with 3D TLC NAND flash memory, and come in 1 TB and 2 TB capacity variants. On offer are sequential transfer rates of up to 7400 MB/s sequential reads, with up to 6800 MB/s writes for the 2 TB variant, and up to 5500 MB/s writes for the 1 TB variant; along with 4K random access performance of up to 800,000 IOPS.

The Viper VP4300 comes with two thermal solutions in the box. You can choose to run it bare (in notebooks, where it might thermal-throttle); with a thin copper heatspreader that uses a graphene-based thermal pad, or a slightly thicker aluminium heatsink. The drives are backed by 5-year warranties.

Update Apr 16th: Patriot reports that the 1 TB version will be priced at USD $254.99, and the 2 TB version at $499.99.

Can you trust an SSD with a Chinese controller? Or does it send all your data to Emperor Xi?

Didn't watch the video, but the controller is great at synthetics

I've already seen the first tests online, we have a rival for the Samsung SSD 980 PRO

Incorrect, it only beat the 980p on sequential. For day to day normal transfer (eg. 4k QD1) its much slower than the 980p. But this seems to be the case for a lot of these 'PCIe 4.0', all mouth and no trousers, as in stupid fast seqentials but slower on the smaller files transfer, as in where it matters for most users.

Having something to compete with the 980Pro is good but Patriot pricing is not good at all ( which is surprising given they tend to offer good value ) :

980Pro 1TB goes for 250$ , or here in EU it goes for 220eur .
980Pro 2TB goes for 350$ , or here in EU it goes for 400eur .

Safe to say the VP4300 priced at 255$ and 500$ for the 1TB and 2TB respectively is quite a bad purchase ( especially for the 2TB model ) all things considered !
