Patriot Zephyr 128GB Review

maximum pc
13 July 2010
  • Excerpt: The JMicron JM602 controller, paired with insufficient cache, hobbled the first generation of consumer SSDs—once the cache filled, write speeds slowed to a crawl. Random-write latencies could get as bad as a fifth of a second (compared to .1ms for most modern SSDs), pulling average sustained writes down as low as 20MB/s in some cases.
  • Pros: 200MB/s+ read speeds; 64MB cache; competitive price.
  • Cons: Stutters under some write conditions; can't match performance of Barefoot or Indilinx SSDs.

  • Excerpt: The more solid state drives grow in popularity, the larger the need to make them affordable. As it sits now, companies are choosing between two paths to achieve low priced drives. The first has been to extend the lifecycle for current products on the market, either leaving the existing model numbers in tact or releasing a new product SKU based on existing technology.

  • Summary: The Patriot Zephyr is a solid addition to the existing line of Patriot SSD’s but may find itself getting the cold shoulder from consumers if the pricing doesn’t fall more in line with some of its peers.
