In CDM we are looking at 4K and 4K Queue Depth performance. Here we see the Inferno running as it should for a SandForce SF-1200 controlled drive with Intel flash. If you are a Patriot fan and saw the Zephyr on our charts, let me point out that the Zephyr is a new product from Patriot, but uses a JMicron controller that does not support NCQ commands.

The 4K write speeds of the Patriot Inferno are also very strong and tell us that the drive is performing as it should.

Enough with the synthetic benchmarks; let's take a look at how the Inferno will perform in your system in real world applications.
