Patriot Viper VPR400 RGB 1TB Gen4x4 M.2 SSD System Setup Table

System Setup

We are using the motherboard’s current default BIOS settings.  We have DOCP enabled.  We are running the latest motherboard BIOS.  We have Windows 10 Pro configured to run in the “High Performance” power profile.  Windows has the latest updates.  NVMe drivers are installed if present on the manufacturer’s webpage.

We compare SSDs on our graphs by PCIe or SATA version. For example, all PCIe Gen4 SSDs are on a graph for comparison, and all PCIe Gen3 SSDs are grouped together separately when reviewed. SATA is also grouped separately when reviewed. In this way, we are comparing similar PCIe or SATA performance, so that it doesn’t skew the results and you can see the best drive in that grouping based on the generation of performance.
