Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Patriot is offering the Pyro in three capacity sizes; 60GB, 120GB and 240GB. The two largest capacity sizes are capable of delivering 550MB/s read and 515MB/s write speeds, while the 60GB is limited to 520MB/s read and 490MB/s write. The 4K random write IOPS is also staggered between the capacity sizes; 85,000 for the two large drives and 80,000 for the 60GB.
The Pyro uses the SandForce SF-2281 controller, the fastest on the market at this time, so you get all of the propriety SF technology like DuraWrite and DuraClass as well as TRIM support for operating systems that support it.
Then we have the current Patriot SSD line up and how it all breaks down by price; this is at the time of writing. The entry level product is the Torqx 2 and in the 128GB capacity size costs 199.99 at Newegg. The flagship Wildfire at Newegg costs 299.99 USD for the 120GB model. That leaves a pretty big gap open for the 120GB Pyro, but instead of placing the Pyro right in the middle, Patriot has positioned it at 209.99, on the low side. This is going to work out very well for consumers, but at the same time cause some confusion since the Torqx 2 is priced so close to the Pyro. The Pyro is the superior product.
