Patriot Releases Viper VPR400 PCIe 4.0 SSD with RGB lighting
Patriot announced the launch of the Viper VPR400 PCIe 4.0 SSD to replace the Viper VPR100 released two years ago. It is said to be the world’s first PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 SSD with RGB lighting effects. The specially designed aluminum heat sink improves heat dissipation and keeps the SSD running stably.
Roger Shinmoto, vice president of Viper Gaming at Patriot, said that the Viper VPR400 PCIe 4.0 SSD is designed to provide ultra-fast data speeds for intense gaming scenarios and complex video content creation. The RGB lights on the heatsink can be synchronized with other Viper Gaming RGB peripherals with the help of Viper RGB 3.0 software, allowing users to customize their lighting profiles or select any of the pre-programmed RGB lighting modes.
Viper VPR400 PCIe 4.0 SSD uses InnoGrit’s IG5220 controller and high-quality 3D NAND flash memory chips. The highest sequential read and sequential write speeds reached 4600 MB/s and 4400 MB/s, respectively, providing two capacities of 512GB and 1TB. It is understood that the Viper VPR400 PCIe 4.0 SSD is different from other NVMe SSDs. It is not simply to limit the read and write performance to prevent the SSD from overheating but to supervise the operation and stability of the SSD in a more reasonable way through the built-in thermal sensor and related technologies and provides the best performance with dynamic management.
It is reported that Patriot Viper VPR400 PCIe 4.0 SSD will be launched in late June, with a five-year warranty, and the price is not yet clear.
