CES 2010 - Patriot is a company most tend to think of when it comes to desktop memory and secondly SSDs. We visited the Patriot suite today here during CES and the company that is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year made it rather clear to us that it intends to break out of its mold and stick its nose into new products to expand its range.
Besides this upcoming range of new SSDs that Chris will cover separately, we were able to get a first look at a whole range of new storage based products that Patriot intends to launch in 2010.
In the video below you'll see Patriot's first serious NAS device, its upcoming USB 3.0 caddies as well as its 4 x 4 unit that excepts four 2.5-inch hard drives or SSDs and is able to offer some rather solid performance numbers since it can be ran in various RAID modes.
Patriot also has some interesting driver tweaks for its pen drives and SSDs drives that is able to significantly improve random write performance by telling the flash controller to write sequentially rather than randomly. It's over my head, but you'll read more from Chris soon on this as well.
