Breakthrough tech powered by Phison’s E8 PCIe controller and features Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity, available in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB capacities
FREMONT, CALIFORNIA, JANUARY 8, 2018 – PATRIOT, a global leader in performance memory, SSDs, gaming peripherals, and flash storage solutions today announced the new addition to their performance SSD line, The EVLVR Thunderbolt™ 3 Portable SSD, offering an evolution in SSD technology.
The EVLVR Thunderbolt™ 3 Portable SSD outpaces the speeds of traditional external SSDs by three-fold. With outstanding speed delivered by the Phison E8 PCIe controller and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, the EVLVR can reach up to 1500MB/s in sequential read and up to 1000MB/s in sequential write speeds. On top of being extremely fast, the EVLVR is also power efficient and does not require any external power supply. Thunderbolt™ 3 brings Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gb/s, creating one compact port that does it all. With Thunderbolt 3 a single cable now revolutionizes connection technology – simultaneously supporting high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices while also supplying power.
The name “EVLVR” is an abbreviation for “evolver”, and the technology itself presents a major evolution in SSD technology. According to Les Henry, Vice President of Engineering at Patriot, “We are pleased to add the Patriot EVLVR Portable SSD to our SSD line, and our team is especially proud of implementing Thunderbolt™ 3 which allows Patriot to build high-speed and high-quality portable storage solutions.”
“We are happy to be able to collaborate with Patriot in bringing a high-performance and power efficient external SSD experience to the Thunderbolt™ 3 eco-system,” said KS Pua, Chairman and CEO of Phison. “We believe the Thunderbolt™ 3 device market will experience a healthy growth in the coming years.”
