COMPUTEX TAIPEI 2008 Among its DDR3-2000 memory running at CL9, Patriot showed off its SATA-II 256GB SSD drive at its booth today out in Nangang. Here is a shot of it for all of you.


The friendly folks we talked to were hush hush on pricing but said they expected it to be on sale by July. It's going to set you back quite a few pennies, so start saving them. Patriot claim incredible read and write speeds but since we spoke to them today (Day 0), the live demo was not up and running when we visited them.

We will check back with them later in the week and see what it is capable of when put to the HD Tach test.
