Patriot recently announced a new PCIe Gen4 M.2 SSD – the Patriot P400 M.2. While it may not be the fastest Patriot has, that title goes to the Patriot Viper VP4300 (review here), it offers a decent performance comparable to a 1st gen Gen4 NVMe SSD. The P400 offers a sequential read speed of up to 5,000MB/s, and a sequential write speed of up to 4,800MB/s (for the 1TB capacity). I don’t know what controller the company used on the P400. Patriot claims that the P400 is “built with the latest PCIe 4X4 controller”. This drive is now available on Amazon.com here and you can check out more details from the official news release below.
PATRIOT announces the availability of the P400 PCIe Gen4x4 m.2 SSD
PATRIOT announces the P400 PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe M.2 SSD with capacities of 512GB and 1TB. The PATRIOT P400 was built using the latest PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe controller and best-in-class components to deliver faster data access, multi-application processing, and quick transfer speeds up to 5000 MB/s in sequential.
The PATRIOT P400 can offer double the transfer speeds compared to standard PCIe 3×4 solutions with lower power consumption making it the best solution for laptop battery efficiency. In addition, the exclusive thin graphene heatshield provides outstanding heat dissipation, especially in systems with limited space.
Roger Shinmoto, the vice president of PATRIOT MEMORY:
“The PATRIOT P400 M.2 is designed to be an ideal solution for budget-minded users looking to achieve a cost-efficient storage solution with PCI Express gen4x4 performance. Our design team has created an excellent thermal solution using a slim graphene heatshield which can avoid any physical interference when using this drive-in system with limited space, such as a thin laptop.”
The Patriot P400 is built from a single-sided M.2 designed to save space and ensure maximum compatibility with the thinnest laptops and small form factor desktops. Stability and reliability are critical issues when creating outstanding storage products, and each P400 comes with advanced firmware to provide end-to-end data path protection and a Smart ECC technology to ensure data integrity and avoid data corruption during intensive processing. These ensure that peak performance will be sustained while preserving high-performance data transfers across a wide variety of workloads, from video editing, gaming battles to visual and audio creative projects.
The PATRIOT P400 is designed to strengthen the system’s overall performance and is backed by PATRIOT’s 3-year warranty. The P400 delivers one of the most reliable price-to-performance SSD’s on the market.
