Built for performance, these MLC-based drives boast up to 285MB/s read and up to 275MB/s write speeds, as well as an obscene 24K IOPS (write) at 4K file sizes. In other words, these little fireballs are fast, which is starting to become standard fare for SSDs built around the SandForce SF-1200 controller.
"The Inferno series of SSDs are the fastest and most exciting that Patriot has yet brought to the market," states Les Henry, Vice President of Engineering at Patriot. "Our Inferno series has been well received and reviewed. We are excited to expand the product family with the introduction of the new larger capacity Inferno drives as well as the new 60GB capacity option. With the addition of the 60GB capacity drive, enthusiasts can enjoy the blistering performance of the Inferno SSD at a more affordable price point making it ideal as a boot drive in a high performance system."
For those who plan to do that, all Inferno series SSDs ship with a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch adapter plate. No word yet on price or availability.
