Patriot Viper VPR400, 1TB Of RGBs

Need A Little DRAM-less TLC?

The Patriot Viper VPR400 RGB 1TB is currently selling for $128 on Amazon, which is not bad for a PCIe 4.0 NVMe 1.4 SSD but not spectacular; not even as good as Josh’s pick from this week’s PCPer Podcast.  Then again, not many of those competitor’s heatspreaders are this luminescent and that can be very important to some.

The Innogrit IG5220 Gen4x4 controller is new to Patriot, as their Viper SSD software does not recognize the drive currently however the Viper RGB 3.0 Sync App does work and allows you to control the RGBs.   This wasn’t too much of an issue, as The FPS Review were able to install the Viper VPR400 RGB using the default Windows NVMe driver.  

As far as performance goes, apart from the random write performance which all TLC drives suffer from, this is an impressive drive.  It isn’t the fastest at everything but it is definitely the fastest at more than a few tests.  If you have a need for read intensive performance, the VPR400 is not a bad choice.

The Patriot Viper 1TB VPR400 RGB PCIe M.2 Gen4 x4 (VPR400-1TBM28H) SSD is the world’s first Gen4x4 SSD with RGB lighting and an integrated heatsink. This one is rated at 4600MB/s read and 4400MB/s write speed, powered by the Innogrit IG5220 Gen4x4 controller, and has a 512GB and 1TB capacity option.
