California-based company Patriot Memory announced today its new lineup of notebook-size SSDs called Pyro. These SATA III drives will deliver “enterprise-like performance to consumer desktops and notebooks” with “unmatched price per performance.”
At their maximum, the Pyro drives will provide 550MB/sec sequential read and 515MB/sec sequential write, which are similar speeds to the Kingston HyperX drives released just yesterday.
Additionally, the new Patriot drives will sport the SandForce SF-2281 controller, the same one found in the OCZ Agility 3, Corsair Force Series 3 and the aforementioned Kingston HyperX. SSD enthusiasts may remember that certain Force Series 3 drives were recalled back in early June due to performance stability issues, so hopefully any related issues would have been solved before these Patriot drives reach consumer hands.
The Pyro series will come in 60GB, 120GB and 240GB capacities with TRIM support. A launch date and price were not mentioned in the press release, but thessdreview.com lists the 120GB and 240GB models for $209 and $449 MSRP, respectively.
