Crystal Disk Mark and PC Mark Vantage

Patriot Inferno 60GB SSD Review

Crystal Disk Mark

Against a couple of different sized, and differently controlled, SSDs the Patriot clearly struggles, in Crystal Disk Mark at least. Although down at the 4KB end it's not too bad as the block size increases the performance doesn't increase at a level we'd expect. Write speeds in particular are the worst we've seen yet.

PC Mark Vantage

Finally we move to the HDD test suite of PC Mark Vantage which utilises the drive to perform general tasks and get a feel for the performance in more real-world applications. Contrary to the tests of the past couple of pages the Patriot actually performs with aplomb in all the tests and even dominates some of them. Nothing if not unpredictable.

Very Well written review Bryan, I do have a couple of questions and it may be an oversight by me, what OS were you using? and was it 32bit or 64bit. I do not know how much this may impact on results and wonder whether that is also a test that should be done just to see if different OS do make a difference.Quote
