The solid stock market is likely to move slowly toward units. PCIe SSD with NVMe protocol. And no less: they are the fastest units of the models that use the SATA standard. Although, for now, the difference in real life, the user experience, between both types of units, is small.
That's why a company is like Patriot took the opportunity of his visit to CES 2020, to introduce his two new SSDs: the model P210 and the model P220 Both are produced as 2.5 inches units, instead of the standard M.2 slot.
The P210 model is the successor to the current Patriot P200 SSD this company is making. So it's a SATA SSD, but with acceptable performance, as you can see in the following picture.
It will be 4 in size storage available in this model: 256 and 512 GB, with 1 and 2 TB as the highest internal capacity.
Prices for transfer They are standard SATA SSD standard drives. However, it is interesting to note that, for models above 256 GB capacity, they can reach 555 MB / s in file readings. Although writing these is the most flexible, the inability to reach 500 MB / s.
The Patriot P220 will be available in size 4 TB only
The next SSD Patriot to take to CES 2020 for a model P220
The memory controller he uses, the Phison S12, is a model specially designed for use with NAND Flash memory for summer QLC. Something not to be surprised too, because the storage unit size is 4 TB. This size in the storage capacity of these SATA SSDs is quite large, and there is nothing out of the ordinary desktop market. There, despite the sharp decline in the price of these units we saw in the last year of 2019, their prices are still quite high. In particular more than 1 TB units.
The fact of the matter is that the Patriot is also not very much alive with the details he offers on the new P220 at CES 2020. He lists only one Type 4 TB For this type of unit. Which leads us to think that, at least initially, this will be the only size available for purchase. The biggest obstacle, as it is logical, is for a company to decide to introduce smaller units to the market, over time. In particular, because the market for 4TB units, given their price, is still limited to the average PC user.
