Starting out with read performance across the drive to get things off and running. The Patriot Pro SE 120GB has an average read speed across the drive of over 415MB/s. The minimum and maximum in this test are very close to the average speed, so there isn't a lot of variation when the drive is in a new state.

In the write test across the drive we achieved an average speed of just over 400MB/s. Once again the performance was smooth with the maximum and minimum speeds keeping very close to the average. This is important when running demanding applications that require a steady state of performance.
