Patriot introduces new PS-100 SSD series

By on November 20, 2009, 3:06 PM
Patriot has announced the release of its PS-100 solid-state drive series. The new lineup is the latest in the company's "cache-based" SSDs, and targets budget-minded consumers seeking the performance and reliability of solid-state technology without having to spend big.

The PS-100 series drives conform to the 2.5" form factor, feature 64MB of cache, have a MTBF of 2.5 million hours, and consume about 5.3W of power during operation and .5W when in standby, which should prove useful in portable systems. The drives deliver sequential read speeds of up to 210MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 150MB/s. Unfortunately, there are no details about the NAND chips or controller.

The PS-100 series will consist of four drives, including 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models. According to Patriot's director of marketing, Eric Ackerson, the drives will be aggressively priced and should arrive just in time for the holidays, but no specifics were given in the press release.

Think I'll hold off until those OCZ 3.0 USB SSD's come out that was listed in a previous article. Especially considering the price of these little toys....
