Patriot Memory Viper VPR100 RGB PCIe 1TB M.2 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2020-10-14

If you do own a motherboard without integrated M.2 heatsinks and have a computer case with a glass/plexiglass window, the VPR100 SSD from Viper Gaming can deliver quite a show via its integrated RGB lighting system, which can be also synced with other compatible devices via the included Viper software or the tools from motherboard manufacturers. Since we are dealing with the same controller, the Phison PS5012-E12 controller and Toshiba 3D TLC NAND from the VPN100, the performance is around the same figures, which is in-line with mainstream drives.
