The days of an SSD being a luxury seem to be all but in the past. Not only that, but the SATA interface, being all but saturated, is starting to look a bit out dated. Sure, with technologies such as 3D NAND, the SATA interface is still very much used still. But, with more and more companies producing NVME, or Non-Volatile Memory Express, drives, it’s only a matter of time before SATA drives go the way of IDE. With the launch of their all new Hellfire NVME M.2 SSD, Patriot understands what enthusiast wants these days. They proved this with the launch of their first NVMe SSD, the Patriot Hellfire, based on Phison's PS5007-E7, PCIe Gen3x4 SSD controller. We recently tested their 240gb model of the Patriot Hellfire M.2. With advertised speeds of Up to 3000 MB/s Read and Up to 2300 MB/s Write, it’s hard to argue with them. However, in a market cornered by the likes of Samsung and Intel, can the Hellfire stand up to the competition? Let’s look and see how it held up.
