Patriot PXD M.2 PCIe External SSD Released

Patriot released the PXD SSD with USB 3.2 Type-C and PCIe Gen3x4 controller

First revealed last CES 2020, Patriot Memory recently announced the availability of the Patriot PXD M.2 PCIe Type-C External SSD. The PXD features PCIe Gen3x4 controller with a bus speed of up to 10Gbit/s and uses the latest USB 3.2 Type-C interface. It’s an ideal external storage solution for those who want a fast transfer speed; while accessing or transferring data on the go. The Patriot PXD is available in 512GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities. Check out more details below.

Patriot PXD M.2 PCIe Type-C External SSD Features and Specs

Fast portable storage devices are becoming more and more popular. This is thanks to M.2 NVMe SSDs becoming cheaper and more accessible. We previously reviewed a similar device, the Crucial X8 Portable SSD, but looks like the Patriot PXD features a smaller or slimmer body. The PXD measures 4.05” in length, 1.24” in width, 0.38” in height, and weighs around 35 grams.

The Patriot PXD SSD is also said to use Phison PS5013-E13T DRAM-less controller, paired with 3D NAND memory. Considering that it is DRAM-less, I don’t think its performance would be stellar; but that remains to be seen. Perhaps the performance would be similar to the Patriot P300 M.2 SSD, also a DRAM-less drive. PXD uses USB 3.2 interface that can support up to 10Gbps transfer. It is also backwards compatible with (slower) USB interface.

For maximizing the compatibility with the latest PC/laptops and MacBook’s, the PXD comes bundled with Type-C to Type-A and Type-C to Type-C cables. The drive is wrapped up under a sleek and sturdy USB-drive size aluminum chassis with shock absorption material for protection and durability.

The Patriot PXD is not only compatible with Windows 10 and Mac OS 10.13; but it is also compatible with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One X. The PXD offers console gamers a quick storage expansion; with faster sequential read and write performance and faster game loads.
