Coming from an already notable lineage, the Patriot Pyro SE 120GB SSD adds synchronous NAND to its award winning design to raise the bar on performance, increases write speeds across the board on compressed and non-compressed files. The Patriot Pyro SE 120GB features the SF-2281 second generation SandForce controller and MLC NAND Flash for stellar performance, with read/write speeds clocking in at a blistering 550/520 MB/s respectively.

The SSD Review has put together a 6Gbps ShowDown that we don't ever think can be matched. Total value of testing equipment exceeds $45,000 US. Top speeds come in at 2.7GB/s performance performance and over 461000 IOPS and we have absolutely pushed two RAID cards and 13 SSDs as far as we think they can be pushed. Grab a seat and buckle up because this is going to be our best ride yet, one you definitely won't be seeing attempted elsewhere anytime soon!
