Patriot Memory has announced the availability of its P400 PCIe Gen4 x4 m.2 SSDs. They come in 512 GB and 1 TB sizes and are priced at $104.99 and $179.49, respectively. The drives feature onboard Smart ECC technology to prevent data corruption. Cooling is achieved via a graphene heatshield that “can avoid any physical interference when using this drive-in system with limited space, such as a thin laptop.” The single-sided 2280 M.2 drives are engineered for the thinnest laptops and small form factor desktops. Transfer speeds are up to 2x that of Gen 3 x4 PCIe m.2 drives.
FREMONT, CALIFORNIA — Jan. 18th, 2022 —PATRIOT, a global leader in performance memory, SSDs, gaming peripherals, and flash storage solutions, is pleased to announce the PATRIOT P400 PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe m.2 SSD with capacities of 512GB and 1TB. The PATRIOT P400 was built using the latest PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe controller and best-in-class components to deliver faster data access, multi-application processing, and quick transfer speeds up to 5000MB/s in sequential.
A limited 3-year warranty is included, but “Patriot reserves the right not to service any SSD failure due to misuse or user damage.” The disclaimer goes on to clarify that misuse includes such activities as “mining/farming operations where rapid increases in data writes to the host causes abnormal drops in SSD speeds or wear damage.” This is no doubt in relation to the brief surge of Chia farming during summer 2021.
