VIPER GAMING, a trademarked brand of PATRIOT and a global leader in performance memory, solid-state drives (SSDs) and flash storage solutions, is releasing their new PCIe 4.0 SSD, the VIPER VP4100 M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 x 4 SSD.

VP4100 M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 x 4 SSD is an excellent M.2 SSD choice for hardcore gamers, PC enthusiasts, content creators, and video rendering professionals who are looking into blazingly fast startup times and instantaneous access for superior productivity. VIPER VP4100's blazing transfer speeds empower the user to access and get back into their games faster while accelerating the overall responsiveness of the system. The VP4100 is ten times faster than the traditional SATA III SSD speeds and deliver remarkable sequential Read speeds of up to 5 GB/s and Write speeds of up to 4.4 GB/s. The drive also provides up to 800K random Read and Write IOPs for massive throughput. 4K Aligned Random Read and Write optimizes the SSD for multi-threaded and data-intensive applications for when the system is accessing multiple applications at once.



"The PATRIOT VIPER VP4100 M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD has been designed to deliver unparalleled performance on the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors and X570 motherboards allowing PC enthusiasts and video creators to take full advantage of the Phison PCIe 4.0 controller and the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Desktop platform," said Roger Shinmoto, the Vice President of PATRIOT and VIPER Gaming.

Traditional NVMe SSDs have a performance restriction to maintain a workable operating temperature which can limit read and write data transfer speeds. To address this issue, the VP4100 M.2 SSD has been designed with an External Thermal Sensor to monitor internal temperatures and prevent the risk of overheating. Aiming to decrease performance drops, VP4100 features a built-in military-grade aluminium heatshield for providing exceptional thermal dissipation under the heaviest of workloads. Designed with durable aluminium, asymmetrical, and tilted thermal fin aesthetic gives the VP4100 the striking edge to any build. Its slim and compact 3 mm height fits perfectly in any PCIe slot, allowing more space for various connections. Backed by VIPER GAMING's 5-year warranty, the VP4100 delivers one of the most reliable choices in high-performance class M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSDs available today.

Features Highlights
  • Built with the latest Phison E16 PCIe Gen4 x 4 NVMe controller to unlock ultra-fast sequential Read and Write speeds.
  • Compatible with the latest 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors and X570 motherboards.
  • Onboard thermal sensor to provide additional protection under intense workloads.
  • Delivers the perfect combination of overall performance, ultra-fast transfer speeds, and enhanced multitasking capabilities.
  • Built on a 10-layer PCB to guarantee excellent signal integrity for ultra-stability.
Pricing and Availability
PATRIOT VIPER VP4100 M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD is expected to be available at major retailers for a suggested retail price of $599.99 for 2 TB, and $ 399.99 for 1 TB.

Compared to the VP100, that has a tiny heatsink...

The last Patriot SSD I had died after a week. Not sure if I'd try them again.
Sent back my first VP100 for RMA, as there was a gap between the controller and the thermalpad/heatsink...
It made it throttle like crazy and it couldn't even complete Crystal Disk Mark.
The replacement drive has been fine though.

The same controller shares the same competition and similar results. but each model is more expensive, 2Tb is $ 200 market value and everything else is a mass extortion. They had the most reasonable prices with the Patriots, and I don't know if the value of the money dropped overnight or we're talking about Hong Kong dollars. The Patriot had more reasonable prices than the competition and the piece of aluminum required here is not that expensive. Chinese extort extortion price .
Thank you for the US economic war ! (this is thought sarcastic) .

Time to put on your reading glasses, it's $600, minus 1 cent.

Prices in the news post appear to be wrong.
MSRP of $229.99 and $429.99

Double the price for 1TB over the 970 evo, all because it has PCIE4? :kookoo:

As opposed to it being perfectly acceptable to pay that much for something that only works on Intel rigs? Especially given that AMD dominates in content creation right now, arguably the only market that can benefit from these things?
