Testing is done with the following software, AS SSD, Aida64, Pcmark 7 and HDtune.
The read results are quite satisfying as they are close to the specifications. Patriot states the drive should run at 270MB/s at read and 230MB/s at max writing speed. We can see that we almost reached a 249MB/s read and almost 174MB/s write. The write speeds are a tad to low but read speeds are still good.
Aida64 Linear Read:
Aida64 on the other hand shows an average 231,4MB/s read speed with a maximum 242MB/s and 217,6MB/s low.
Aida64 Linear Write:
When it comes to write speeds this drive is specified to 230MB/s. During our Aida64 testing we got a average speed of 150,4 which is way below the specified speed.
