Patriot Inferno 120GB SandForce-Based SSD

4 thumbs up

 

Our next series of Vantage tests will stress the write performance. Applications like video editing, streaming and recording are not what we would call a strong suit for the average SSD, due to their high mix of random write transactions.  We should also note that it's not so much a weakness of the memory itself, but rather the interface and control algorithms that deal with inherent erase block latency of MLC NAND flash.  SSD manufacturers are getting better at this, as is evidenced by our results below...

The remainder of the PCMark Vantage tests show a similar performance trend. The Patriot Inferno finished slightly behind the other SandForce based OCZ and Corsair drives in three of four tests, but in the fourth test (media player) it was actually the best performer of the bunch.

If you’re familiar with other enthusiast-class SandForce based offerings, many of the features and specifications should come as no surprise.

I have an OCZ Agility-II with the Sandforce controller and it's blazing fast.

All of these drives seem to perform about the same, and that's FAST!!

My desktops WEI score was 6.0 because the lowest part was the 6.0 of the HDD storage device.All other parts were in the 7.3~ 7.6 range.

I replaced the HDD with an OCZ 100gb Vertex 2 I purchased in June before the 120gb extended version came out.

My WEI score shot up to 7.3 due to the CPU and Vertex 2 being 7.3.

These drives really shine in the 4K and 4K QD32 read and writes.

I recently moved it to a netbook for evaluation but the netbook is such a PITA to open up that I decided just to leave it in there.

I feel these drives will soon be replaced by new SATA 3.0(6 gb/s)drives or more advanced technology.

There is now a $30 MIR on this drive at NewEgg, making it one of the more affordable 120GB SandForce based SSDs available.  If you're in the market for new SSD, check this baby out...

The more competitive players the better my prices, and Patriot seems to really be competing.
