Sandforce SF-2200 based
Patriot has finally rolled out its own Wildfire SSD based on the Sandforce SF-2200 controller.

The new Patriot Wildfire SSD features a SATA 6Gbps interface, Trim support and is capable of achieving speeds of up to 555MB/s for read and up to 520MB/s for write. The 4k random write peaks at 85,000 IOPS and it ships with a 3.5-inch bracket. According to William Lai, Patriot Memory's Product Manager, the reason for the delayed introduction is the fact that they wanted to ensure that the technology was rock-solid and that the drive performs at its best.

The new Wildfire SSD will be available in 120 and 240GB capacity while the 480GB model will ship a bit later. Unfortunately, the price still remains a mystery, at least until we see those on retail/e-tail shelves.
