editor's comments:- March 2013 - Patriot Memory is a me-too supplier of consumer SSDs. The company has never been listed in the Top SSD Companies List, nor in the fastest SSDs list.

    In December 2010 - Patriot Memory launched a single chip native USB 3 flash drive - which offers faster performance than other designs which use include a USB bridge chip.

    In March 2013 - Patriot's SSD product line still looks thin and me-too.

    A report in speculated that Patriot may phase out its own SSD products.

    That could be due to a problem which is symptomatic for many consumer SSD companies. Although the SSD market is large and growing - most SSD companies don't have any worthwhile SSD IP, and many consumer companies aren't doing anything different to 100 plus other SSD competitors.
