Patriot Memory has just rolled out its new Zephyr series of Solid State Drives, also known as SSDs. For folks who want an alternative data storage system apart from the traditional hard drive system can always check out SSD technology, where it offers a much faster data transfer rate, and with the advantage of not having any moving parts, you can rest easy knowing that noise problems will be a thing of the past, not to mention having less chance of a mechanical breakdown or failure during your data transfer process. The new Zephyr SSD series will come with improved system responsiveness complete with quicker boot times and shorter application loading times. To know more, why not head on after the jump?
The Patriot’s Zephyr SSD series will come in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities, depending on your needs and budget. Needless to say, the smaller capacity model is a whole lot more affordable compared to the 256GB model, but then again you get what you pay for. This new series was designed around the latest generation controller from JMicron known as the JMF612, where it is also equipped with a controller level cache of 64MB DDR2. Not only that, you can be sure that the Zephyr series offers stutter-free performance as well as the capability to hit speeds of up to 240MB/s read and 180MB/s write.
In order to maintain performance integrity throughout the drive’s entire life, the Zephyr series SSDs will come with native support for the TRIM command in Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. Boasting an aluminum housing that further minimizes typical wear and tear, you won’t have to worry about any moving parts to fail as we mentioned before. Not only that, you won’t have to worry about your SSD being damaged from daily use in portable computing solutions. Nice to know that you will be able to enjoy a 3-year warranty with each purchase, eh?
