The Patriot Inferno 100GB SF-1200 SSD
Here we get our first real look at our Patriot Inferno 100GB SandForce SF-1200 controlled SSD. Just like the box, a still image doesn't really show the finer details of the drive.
Under the anodized red is brushed aluminum that gives the drive depth when light reflects off the surface of the metal. I am not sure if the drive is actually anodized or uses two step candy color paint over brushed aluminum, but it is very hard and if paint it has been baked on perfectly.
The drive capacity was on the front sticker and on the back we found the official model and serial number for our sample Patriot Inferno. These were both laser etched in the case cover.
In the side image you can see some of the color depth a little better since the Inferno has a beveled edge. We also see that the correct mounting locations were used, making the drive very easy to mount in standard 2.5" form factor brackets.
On the back we found standard SATA power and data ports.
Inside we found what I am calling the 2+2 PCB named after the four chokes arranged in two by two fashion. The SandForce 1222 controller tells us that the Inferno uses the SF-1200 controller and the large I on the memory indicates Intel flash was used. We have seen the same flash used on all SF-1200 SSDs except the G.Skill Phoenix which used Samsung M Die.
On the back we found eight more Intel flash memory modules bringing our total to sixteen.
