Patriot debuts Ignite series M.2 solid-state drives

Patriot Memory has officially unveiled the new Ignite series of M.2-based solid-state drives. The new SSD line will be used in various notebooks, ultrabooks and compact PCs but despite the small size of the new SSDs, they will still provide fast data access, low power consumption and virtually no noise when compared to modern hard drives. Currently the Ignite line includes two models only with capacities of 240 GB and 480 GB.

“We are happy to announce the Ignite M2 addition to our family of SSD products,” said Les Henry, VP of Engineering at Patriot. “With the Ignite M2, Patriot now offers a full range of SSDs, from 2.5″ SATA 3, to mSATA and now M.2. The Ignite M2 drives are the perfect storage solution for those looking to build/upgrade their small form factor PCs.”

The new Patriot Ignite SSD line comes in the popular M.2 form factor and features Next-Generation-Form-Factor (NGFF) case free design that measures just 22 x 80 mm (W x L). The drives are powered by Phison’s new S10 memory controller and thanks to its efforts they reach up to 560 MB/sec of read speed and up to 320 MB/sec of write speed as well as 90 000/70 000 IOPS of random 4K reading and writing. As expected the Ignite line fully supports SATA 3.0 and comes with a 3-year warranty as well as smartECC, Smart Refresh, end-to-end data protection, advanced wear-leveling, advanced garbage collection and other modern SSD technologies. In addition the Ignite SSDs can work under Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Linux.

Patriot’s Ignite line will be available in early May at various online retailers. The 240 GB model will sell for USD 109.99 while the 480 GB model will cost USD 209.99.
