In 2020, we took a look at Patriot’s Viper VPR100 NVMe solid-state drive, the industry’s first M.2 NVMe solid-state drive with RGB lighting. Well, Patriot is back with a Gen4 drive with the same cool RGB lighting, the VPR400! To our knowledge, this is the first Gen4 drive with RGB lighting. In addition to the bling of the RGB lighting on this drive, Patriot uses the InnoGrit IG5220 DRAMless controller with Micron 176-layer TLC NAND flash, giving this drive sequential read and write speeds of 4600MB/s and 4400MB/s, respectively. s gets. This is the same configuration we saw on the ADATA XPG ATOM 50 drive. Let’s take a look and see what this drive is all about!
Special thanks to Patriot for providing the Viper VPR400 RGB Gen4 NVMe Solid State Drive to review.
Features and Specifications
The Viper VPR400 comes in a very nice box. On the front, we have a photo of the drive, as well as a list of speeds and our capacity, which is 1TB. Patriot will also offer this drive in a 500GB version. If you turn the box backwards, you’ll see a simple list of speeds and capacities in a handful of different languages.
The front part of the box opens up like a book, so you can take a closer look at the drive and learn more about it. When you open the box you will find inside the drive nicely protected in a clamshell-like package.
