Patriot Blaze 240GB SSD

Here we get our first look at the Blaze packaging. As mentioned, this product does have some brick and mortar availability; we've seen the Blaze products for sale at Fry's Electronics in the past month.

A few of the product features are listed on the back of the package.

Inside, we found the Blaze 240GB SSD, and a color manual that details the warranty terms.

Patriot uses the same case for both the Blaze and the Torch products, but the label is different for each.

The model and serial numbers are both listed on the back of the drive.

The Blaze uses a 7mm case design, so it will fit in new notebooks and Ultrabooks that require the thin design.

Inside, we found a very small PCB with four NAND flash packages, a controller, and a DRAM package.

There isn't much to the design. Patriot used a Phison S8 controller, and paired it with third-party packaged 16nm ONFi flash, and a DDR3-1600 DRAM package.

Two additional 16nm flash packages are on the backside of the PCB.
