Test Rig

Big thank you to CryoPC for providing the following test rig:

CPU: Core i5 750 @ 4GHZ
Motherboard: Asus P7P55D-E
RAM: Corsair Dominator 4GB PC3-12800 DDR3
Storage: Samsung F3 500GB 16MB
PSU: Corsair TX 650w
CASE: NZXT Hades

Methodology

To test out the Patriot XT memory device I ran a quick synthetic test: the SiSoft Sandra portable memory benchmark. This test measured the read/write and latency of a storage medium and is designed for testing portable drives.

Results

Write

Well, while the Kingston drive is certainly more expensive, more than double in some places, you would expect a price hike simply because of the double storage capacity. That said, I think the Patriot does quite well to hold its own, even if its quite evidently outclassed.

Cost

The patriot Supersonic 32GB drive will run you anywhere between £70 and £90 depending on where you shop. This seems quite expensive, but its about what you’d expect to find a USB 3.0 drive of this capacity at with most manufacturers.

    Very poor review, only one synthetic test is less then minimum.
    And one mistake: Patriot provides info, that the enclosure is aluminum, not plastic.

      Thanks for the heads up about the enclosure and sorry for the lack of testing. We’ve been under tight schedules recently and have had trouble fully testing products. Things should return to normal soon never fear.
