As long as the firmware is up to date and drivers are running properly, SandForce is still the ideal controller for users who want optimal performance without spending too darn much money. Our testing revealed Patriot’s Inferno 120GB SSD is as...

An excellent SSD whose performance levels are up there with the best. The biggest fault we have is that it is not sufficiently widely available on the market; it is very difficult to find, and when you can find models for sale, their price is often...

So where are we after all that testing?It's difficult to say with any certainty. For every test that showed the fearsome potential of the SandForce controller paired to the Intel MLC, we have one that makes it appear like an absolute dog. In...

If Patriot's 120GB Inferno was the only SandForce-powered SSD on the market, we'd be lauding the drive for its super-quick performance. Realistically, the drive is one of many, and when put up against the award-winning OCZ Vertex 2, the...

Not really following Patriot that closely until now I am very impressed with the Inferno solid state drive. It out-performed our other 2 120GB SandForce-based drives in most of the tests. I was really impressed with HDTune write benchmark and our...

Though it excelled in many of our synthetic tests, the Patriot Inferno SSD doesn't distinguish itself much in practice from the existing SandForce drives. This isn't a bad thing though: these drives are all very fast, so it's not like you...

The Patriot Inferno drive was a mix of decent speed with unwanted inconsistencies. There were too many ups and downs during the testing that could not give a definitive look at the performance. We have seen this with a few SandForce based drives in...

As we’ve come to expect from SandForce driven solid state drives, the Patriot Inferno 120GB offers excellent performance overall. In every one of our tests, the Patriot Inferno competed favorably with other SandForce-based products from OCZ and...

Patriot has released a solid product with the Inferno SSD. As expected it performs very similar to the other 120GB Sandforce drives we reviewed earlier, the OCZ Agility 120GB. Sometimes the Patriot was a bit faster, sometimes the Agility 2 took the...

Looking at the results, the Inferno scores even better than the previous SandForce-based solid-state drive tested, in general. It only really faltered in the Windows 7 boot test, where it was behind by one mere second slower, and the AS SSD benchmark...

Patriot's SandForce SSD offers high performance—mostly SandForce-based drives have quickly emerged as the frontrunners in the solid-state wars, thanks to impressive read and write speeds, both sequential and random (which finally gives them an...

In terms of performance, the Inferno manages to produce excellent small file and random write performance that is truly impressive. And that is exactly the type of speed you want in a drive running your operating system and applications. The Patriot...

While the performance of the Inferno is nothing we haven't seen from other drives featuring the same controller, the inclusion of the adapter plate and generous five year warranty do help make the Patriot Inferno a compelling choice among its...

Patriot Memory recently introduced the Inferno series of solid state discs (SSD). The Patriot Inferno SSD offers all these great features found in SSD such fast transfer speeds, improved system responsiveness, quicker boot times, and shorter...

Patriot's Inferno 100 GB SSD is a typical Sandforce flash drive contender. This also makes it very hard for the drive to separate itself from offerings of other manufacturers. It delivers performance very similar to other Sandforce drives that we...

The Patriot Inferno is certainly an interesting drive and when we look back upon the results, there is no doubt it is extremely fast when compared to most other SSDs on the market. It offers great performance across every one of the programs you will...

Red hot performance from the latest solid state storage technology. That's Patriot's plan with its new Inferno 100GB SSD. Just in case you haven't got the message, Patriot has dressed the Inferno in funky, bright red anodised threads.Of...

Given what we had already seen from the previous Sandforce-based SSDs, the Patriot Inferno 100GB was never going to disappoint in terms of performance. However while Patriot seems to be leading the industry with their warranty, they are quite behind...

Basis für das flotte Tempo der Inferno-SSD ist der Sandforce-Controller SF-1222TA3, dem Patriot MLC-Flash-Speicherchips von Intel zur Seite stellt. Im Vergleich zu herkömmlichen SSD-Controllern verzichtet das Sandforce-Modell auf einen...
