Patriot Warp v2 SSD

EDITORS NOTE: Please read Solid State Drive (SSD) Benchmark Performance Testing to understand how the benchmarks used in this article should be interpreted.

Solid State Drives are rapidly changing the computing landscape, and many enthusiasts are using SSD technology in their primary systems to help boost performance. Benchmark Reviews has tested nearly all of the products available to the retail market in this sector, and several do well while others fall flat. It used to be that performance was the largest hurdle, but now we're seeing that stability is a major factor. In this article, we test bandwidth performance on the Patriot Warp 128GB SATA-II SSD PE128GS25SSDR and compare it against the competition.

Since first making a commercial public debut at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show, Solid State Drives (SSD's) have been a topic of hot discussion among performance enthusiasts. With virtually no access time delay, these nonvolatile flash memory-based drives were quick to promise a more reliable storage device with greater performance while operating at a fraction of the power level. Moving further into 2008 they have become a reality for many performance-minded power users. I suppose it's been a slow ramp-up for consumers to accept Solid State Drive technology, similar to the struggle DDR3 SDRAM has seen.

Perhaps Benchmark Reviews likes to ride the edge of technology just a little too close, since we've tested more DDR3 and SSD's than almost everyone else on the web. The bleeding edge is where most enthusiasts like to live, but seldom enjoy the price tag. Because I am in a position where cutting edge technology are within my reach (if only for a few weeks of testing), my experience is valuable to the small niche of consumers that might actually want these premier products. Benchmark Reviews has been hard at work trying to ride the wave of innovation into the next big technology. It only took a few years of development, but Solid State Drives can now offer superior speed over Hard Disk Drives; but they are still extremely expensive.

According to a Q1 2008 report by the semiconductor market research firm iSuppli, the SSD market will grow at an annualized average of 124 percent during the four-year period from 2008 until 2012. iSuppli now projects SSD sales to increase by an additional 35 percent in 2009 over what it projected last year, 51 percent more in 2010, and 89 percent more in 2011, and continue to show dramatic increases in subsequent years.

Patriot Extreme Performance (EP) Warp series Solid State Drive (SSD) is the latest in storage technology. Using the state-of-the-art NAND flash chips and ultra-fast controller, the Warp v.2 SSD is available from 32GB to 128GB capacity delivering a blazing transfer speed up to 175MB/s read and 100 MB/ write. Compared to conventional disk drives, built with 100% moving-free parts and housed in a vibration and shock resistance housing, the Warp SSDs provide a rock solid operating environment even during the most extreme working conditions. A perfect solution for a wide range of applications which demand ruggedness, minimal power consumption, cooler temperature and silent operations. Built to sustain heavy usage, the Warp SSDs have built-in wear leveling technology in addition to the standard 2 year warranty to maximize the life span of the drive and preserve your data integrity by automatically marking and blocking bad data cells.

Helo, where i can find firmware update for the Patriot Warp V2 SSD HDD drive PE128GS25SSD-2E22B0908, S2SN-A28SMDCJ022-12E, TW92020005?
On ##patriotmemory.com/support/driversp.jsp i cant find this model.

Disk sometime freeze system on startup with Gigabyte T1125N notebook. When i try start system few times again, and system at last start begin, disk works propertly. Problem its only with starting system.

With another SSD disk OCZ agility3, or standard disk, notebook works propeltly. Notebook have instaled latest firmware from gigabyte.

Thanks for answer
