Patriot reveals its new Hellfire M.2 PCIe SSD and the Hellfire PCIe AIC (Add-in Card) solid state solutions at CES 2016. Both SSDs wil start shipping in March 2016.
Hellfire M.2 PCIe SSD
The Hellfire will be Patriot’s first M.2 PCIe SSD, and an impressive one at that. With a Gen 3 x 4 interface and NVMe 1.2 compliant, the Hellfire M.2 will reaches speeds of up to 2,500MB/s read and 600MB/s. Designed with the needs of content creators, gamers and PC enthusiasts in mind the, Hellfire will lower latency while increasing the productivity and response times of any PC, laptop or notebook.
The Hellfire M.2 will be released in capacities of 240GB, 480GB and 960GB in a M.2 2280 form factor to fulfill the high performance storage needs of consumers looking to upgrade their systems. Powered by the Phison 5007 controller and MLC NAND, the Hellfire will be your weapon of choice when battling those latency bottlenecks.
Hellfire PCIe AIC SSD
In addition to the Hellfire M.2, Patriot will also launch the Patriot Hellfire PCIe AIC for those looking for the ultimate performance boost to their PC. The Hellfire PCIe AIC with a Gen 3 x 4 interface is Patriot’s top of the line choice for a storage solution. With sequential read speeds of up to 3000MB/s and write speeds of up to 2200MB/s the Hellfire PCIe AIC smokes the competition to position itself as Patriot’s premium performance drive.
With varying speeds between capacities, the Hellfire PCIe AIC will be available in capacities of 240GB, 480GB and 960GB to meet the market needs of every demographic. Also utilizing the Phison 5007 with MLC NAND , the Hellfire PCIe AIC will set your system ablaze.
“We are very excited to get into the PCIe storage space,” said Les Henry, VP of Engineering at Patriot. “With the launch of Intel’s latest Skylake Processor, we are seeing more motherboards available in the consumer market that support PCIe devices. Along with the launch of Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, which supports PCIe storage devices without the need for additional drivers, we feel this will be the future trend and will allow users to take full advantage of the PCIe storage speeds.“
