Share this:

Patriot Memory recently released its new and faster Gen4 SSD – the VIPER VP4300 PCIe Gen4 x 4 NVMe M.2 SSD. Patriot’s new Gen4 SSD is built with an Innogrit IG5236 Gen 4×4 NVMe controller; offering sequential speeds of up to 7,400MB/s read and up to 6,800MB/s write. Interestingly, the Viper VP4300 also comes with two optional heatshields; an aluminum and a Graphene heatshield. It also features Thermal Throttling technology and has a built-in thermal sensor that protects and helps sustain optimal performance under heavy workloads. More details including its pricing, and availability below.

Patriot VIPER VP4300 PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD Launched

PATRIOT VIPER launches its Viper VP4300 PCIe Gen4x4 NVME M.2 2280 SSD today. The SSD is built using the latest Innogrit Gen 4×4 high-speed controller-IG5236, paired with a high-quality DDR4 DRAM cache. It is built on a 10-layer PCB to guarantee excellent signal integrity and stability. Viper’s all-new Gen4 SSD is available in capacities of 1TB and 2TB.

The VP4300 offers 4K random read and random write of up to 8000K IOPs. In addition, it also offers sequential read and writes speeds up to 7,400MB/s and 6,800MB/s, respectively. As a result, users get faster overall performance from system boots to accelerating system responsiveness when loading games or data-intensive applications.

To keep the NVMe m.2 SSD thermally stable, the Viper VP4300 SSD comes with two heat spreaders: an aluminum heatshield and an extremely thin, single-use, graphene thermal pad. Interestingly, Patriot says both heat spreaders can be used together or independently in a variety of different system configurations; from a full tower desktop to a restricted ITX tower or gaming laptop.

Graphene or Aluminum? Why Not Both?

The aluminum and graphene heatshields offer two height profiles and can be used independently or together for superior heat dissipation in any build. The Graphene heatshield is an ultra-thin and lightweight thermal pad. It is best used when space is limited, or an integrated heatsink is being used. Users can choose which one to use according to the allowed installation space.

Viper VP4300’s Thermal Throttling Technology

Many traditional NVMe SSDs set performance restrictions that limit Read and Write data transfer speeds to maintain a workable operating temperature. The Viper VP4300 is designed with a cutting-edge Thermal Throttling technology that uses a built-in thermal sensor and firmware to manage the SSD temperature. This will prevent overheating and easily leverage the best performance under a variety of different system tasks.
