Occasionally impressive performance, but it’s too expensive compared to its rivals...

The results reveal an easy conclusion. It also reveals that the name Wildfire is duly justified. If I were to make an analogy, it would be that the 120GB Patriot Memory Wildfire SSD is a Formula 1 race car. The performance coming from this SSD is...

As we compare the 120GB Patriot Wildfire in it's out of the box new state to a beaten near-to-death state, the results are pretty impressive. Granted this is a single drive sample, but consumers looking for a mainstream SSD should be at least...

The Solid State sector has been thriving in 2011, with a plethora of low cost models available to suit the mainstream audience. The high end enthusiast sector is significantly more demanding, with manufacturers working around the clock to get the...

Along with the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS, the Patriot Wildfire is one of this year’s super speed storage success stories. Some careful internal design from Patriot, along with some interesting component choices, means we’ve...

So after reading all the results i am sure many of you are wondering about which SSD is currently the best one in the market. Well if you can afford the extra premium then the RevoDrive3 240GB is without doubt faster than every other SSD in...

Patriot's Wildfire 120 GB impressed me with its performance. At first I thought "just another Sandforce-based drive", but after seeing the results, where the drive often ends up being the fastest SSD in our test group, I'm starting to think...

For their Wildfire SSD Patriot give us a decent box with plenty of protective material inside that ensures the drive arrives in perfect condition. The device itself has a solid chassis and inside we find a quality controller with the same Toshiba MLC...

Patriot has really proved once again that they can hang with the big boys when it comes to solid state drives. They did this with the Inferno drive and they have done it again with the Wildfire drive. It is not the single fastest 2.5-inch solid...

While it couldn’t match the advertised performance in our tests, the Patriot Wildfire 240GB is still a very quick solid-state drive. In simple drag-racing terms – the sequential read/write tests – it could easily surpass the...

We can see from our tests that the Patriot Wildfire has a clear performance lead over both of the Corsair drives we used for comparison, so it is ideal for those looking for the ultimate performance from their drive. The performance differences...

This isn’t Patriot’s first rodeo. The company’s Torqx drive (reviewed September 2009) was one of the best Indilinx SSDs on the market for a while, and the Inferno (October 2010) was a perfectly cromulent first-gen SandForce drive, only...

Most of our testing shows the Wildfire solid state drives from Patriot are the fastest of the ones we had on hand to test against. This includes units that share the same SandForce controller. This goes to show that you don’t have to be the larger...

It's been a long time coming, but Patriot has finally released its own SandForce-based SSD, the performance-oriented Patriot Wildfire 120GB.Like primary school kids vying for peer respect by racing up and down the school field, solid state drives...

Earlier this year, the first real native SATA3 (6G) controllers popped in that Intel series 6 chipset, after which raving reviews in terms of performance spread like a fire all over the web. Just over half a year after that SATA3 controller...

The 120GB niche has certainly become crowded as of late but due to a myriad of reasons, innovation has been sorely lacking. Companies seem to be in rush to homogenize their lineups with that of their competitors in order to get their share of this...

These ultra-fast drives come at a cost premium, so if you’re cautious about spending £2/GB for a Wildfire to revive your aging PC, perhaps you’re better suited to something a little more tame. However, if you’ve got the cash to...
