Thanks to the new Phison PS5012-E12 NVMe controller, the upcoming Viper M.2 SSDs will be able to provide almost identical speeds for sequential reads and writes, and will come in capacities ranging from 240 GB to almost 2 TB.

Patriot has managed to position itself quite well on the US memory market with its RAM products and, as of late, SSDs and gaming peripherals. The Californian company announced recently that its NVMe SSD roster will be updated with the new Viper series based on Toshiba’s 64-layer BICS 3D NAND flash memory and Phison’s PS5012-E12 NVMe controller. The new Viper models will replace the existing Hellfire products, and will be compatible with desktop PCs , as well as laptops and convertibles.

Phison’s PS5012-E12 controller can support up to 8 NAND channels, uses four PCIe 3.0 lanes and compatible with the NVMe 1.3 standard. Capacity options include 240/480/960/1920 GB, while Patriot demonstrated back at CES 2018 that the Phison controller is able to provide impressive 3200 MB/s sequential reads and 3000 MB/s sequential writes. Also worth mentioning is the parity of the 4K random reads and writes, both going up to 600K IOPS.

The Viper series is expected to debut on the US market this spring, however, Patriot did not provide any information regarding prices, as Phison has not yet officially released the latest PS5012-E12 controller.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
