“We first saw the Patriot Wildfire back in June of 2011 and at the time it was one of the hottest new SSDs on the market. That was around 9 months ago so while no longer new, Wildfire is still competitive with, and considered one of the best on the market today. The key to Wildfire’s longevity is the Toshiba Toggle Mode flash Patriot chose to use on this SSD.
Toshiba and their partner SanDisk has received a lot of press lately for their new 24nm Toggle Mode flash. The new 24nm flash has proven to be very fast, but that is about the only thing it’s proved so far. We’re still seeing issues in our labs with write performance degrading rapidly until TRIM finishes its cycle. This was not a problem on the older 32nm Toggle Mode flash, the same used on the Patriot Wildfire.”
