The Patriot Extreme Performance Warp Series has become very popular with enthusiasts looking to get the latest SSD technology in their system. Last October we reviewed the Warp V2 128GB drive and were very pleased with the speed and price of the drive. Later Cameron took a set of 4 Warp V2 drives to the next level by placing them in a RAID array and the results were stunning. At CeBIT Patriot had a new Warp product on display; the Warp Version 3. We got goose bumps after hearing the specs list.
The third generation Warp drive is currently only available in 256GB capacity and uses a simulated RAID 0 technology internally to increase write speeds. The claimed read speed on the Warp V3 was quoted to us as 240 MB/s, so we are expecting to see some great numbers out of this drive. Hopefully these high synthetic numbers relate to a dose of intense real world performance.
Before you get wrapped up in performance, you have to prepare yourself for the cost to play at this level. As of today the Patriot Warp V3 is only a 256GB part and as such comes at a high cost. Newegg has the new V3 in stock for 595.00 USD. The G.Skill TITAN we reviewed a few weeks ago is now down to 525 USD. Let's see how the Warp V3 compares to the TITAN and all of our other selected 2.5 inch drives!
