CES 2016 - If the new super-fast PCIe-based Hellfire SSDs weren't enough storage goodness for you from Patriot, the new Gauntlet 4 SSD enclosure should have you raising an eyebrow with its USB Type-C connectivity.


The Patriot Gauntlet 4 SSD enclosure converts any 2.5-inch SSD or HDD to an external storage drive, with Patriot providing two connector cables: a microB to Type-C and a microB to Type-A, which ensures that everyone can get use out of the SSD enclosure.

Saeed Arash Far, Global Director of Engineering for Patriot explains: "The Market is rapidly changing from the traditional USB connectivity and data transfer to the latest advancements in USB connectivity, such as Type-C, and the fast speeds of USB 3.1 Gen 2. With the Gauntlet 4, Patriot enables consumers to take full advantage of these speeds across different platforms in addition to Type-C enabled notebooks and computer systems".

The Gauntlet 4 SSD enclosure is backwards compatible with both USB 3.0 and USB 3.0, and will be available later this quarter for $39.99.
