Final Thoughts

As we've noted previously, 2TB Phison E16 powered SSDs seem to hold a distinct advantage over competing 2TB SSDs other than just being faster overall on Zen 2 platforms. They are the only 2TB SSDs that do not lose a significant amount of performance in comparison to their 1TB siblings. 2TB E16 powered SSDs are only about 1% slower in real-world applications than their 1TB siblings. Other 2TB SSDs we've tested give up between 7% and 13% in performance compared to their 1TB siblings. So, when you buy a 2TB Viper VP4100, you can have your cake and eat it too.


If you are fortunate enough to be the proud owner of AMD's wildly popular Zen 2 platform, and you want to get the most from your system, you will be needing a Phison E16 powered SSD like Patriot's potent Viper VP4100. As we demonstrated, Optane aside, there is nothing currently available that will deliver a better user experience than a PCIe Gen4 SSD. It will cost you a bit more, but owning the best always does.

Patriot's Viper VP4100 2TB NVMe PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD is TweakTown approved and highly recommended.
