Patriot Wildfire 120GB

Looking for a snappy new SSD for your PC? Overclockers Club has the Patriot Wildfire 120GB in house today for a round or two of benchmarks and they seem to really like the drive.

On paper, the specifications include 555Mb/s read speeds and writes of 520MB/s, along with 4k aligned random write performance of 85,000 IOPs آ— marks the Wildfire easily delivered. This makes the drive, at times, more than twice as fast as many previous-generation drives controlled by Sandforce 1222 and INDILINX Barefoot controllers آ— numbers it took previous-generation drives in RAID to achieve.
