Hellfire M.2 PCIe SSD.
The Hellfire will be Patriot’s first M.2 PCIe SSD. With a Gen 3 x 4 interface and NVMe 1.2 compliant, the Hellfire M.2 reportedly reaches speeds of up to 2,500MB/s read and 600MB/s. Hellfire will lower latency while increasing the productivity and response times of any PC, laptop or notebook, says Les Henry, vice president of Engineering at Patriot.
The Hellfire M.2 will be released in capacities of 240GB, 480GB and 960GB in a M.2 2280 form factor. It’s powered by the Phison 5007 controller and MLC NAND.
In addition to the Hellfire M.2, Patriot will also launch the Patriot Hellfire PCIe AIC. 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.
With varying speeds between capacities, the Hellfire PCIe AIC will be available in capacities of 240GB, 480GB and 960GB. The Patriot Hellfire drives will be available for purchase at the end of quarter one. Pricing hasn’t been announced.
