Patriot Memory has announced its latest SSD series, the Inferno range, based on the SandForce SF-1222 controller.  These feature an average of 20x improved endurance and reliability like that of enterprise class SSDs with SandForce’s DuraClass technology, which gives much more efficient wear levelling.

The Inferno family feature a unique aluminium housing for additional robustness and sequentional throughputs of up to 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write.  To show Patriot’s confidence with these SSDs, they are backed by a 5-year warranty.  Each drive is shipped with a 3.5″ adapter to allow mounting in a desktop PC 3.5″ bay.

Patriot’s Inferno series, available in 100GB and 200GB capacities, is designed around the highly acclaimed SF-1200 processor series. Paired with specially screened MLC NAND Flash the Inferno drives deliver class leading performance with sequential read and write speeds of 285MB/s and 275MB/s respectively. SandForce DuraClass™ technology provides enhanced endurance and reliability by an average of 20x over traditional SSD controllers through innovative write technology and Wear Leveling.
