Patriot has introduced a new series of affordable Viper VPR400 NVMe SSDs in M.2 PCIe 4.0 x4 modules. The series consists of two models with a capacity of 512 GB and 1 TB. Both are based on the InnoGrit IG5220 microcontroller. However, the company does not specify what type of 3D NAND flash memory is used.
The manufacturer specifies sequential read speeds of up to 4600 MB/s for both models of the Viper VPR400 drives. Sequential write speeds for the 512GB version are up to 3600MB/s, while that number hits 4400MB/s for the older 1TB model. Random read and write performance for new products is 600 and 500,000 IOPS respectively.
The Patriot Viper VPR400 drives are equipped with aluminum heat sinks. Additionally, the use of a dynamic throttling algorithm is designed to prevent media overheating to ensure the advertised speed. The manufacturer says that the 512GB model Viper VPR400 is ready to give 400TB for rewriting information. And the resource of the 1 TB version is 800 TB of information. Both models have a 5-year guarantee.
The heatsinks of the Patriot Viper VPR400 drive are equipped with RGB lighting. Support for the popular lighting control programs ASUS Aurora Sync, ASRock Polychrome Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion and MSI Mystic Light Sync is announced.
The manufacturer hasn’t disclosed the cost of the Viper VPR400 solid-state NVMe drives, but based on the models’ characteristics, they shouldn’t be high.
