Patriot Viper VPR100 RGB 1TB SSD Review

To test real life performance of a drive we use a mix of folder/file types and by using the FastCopy utility (which gives a time as well as MB/s result) we record the performance of drive reading from & writing to a 256GB Samsung SSD850 PRO.

We use the following folder/file types:

  • 100GB data file.
  • 60GB iso image.
  • 60GB Steam folder – 29,521 files.
  • 50GB File folder – 28,523 files.
  • 21GB 8K Movie demos.
  • 12GB Movie folder – 24 files (mix of Blu-ray and 4K files).
  • 11GB 4K Raw Movie Clips (8 MP4V files).
  • 10GB Photo folder – 621 files (mix of png, raw and jpeg images).
  • 10GB Audio folder – 1,483 files (mix of mp3 and .flac files).
  • 5GB (1.5bn pixel) photo.
  • Blu-ray movie.

256GB Samsung SSD850 PRO


The Patriot Viper VPR100 had no problem dealing with any of our real-life file transfers, averaging well over 500MB/s write performance for the majority of the tests.

OCZ RD400

To get a measure of how much faster PCIe NVMe drives are than standard SATA SSDs we use the same files but transfer to and from a 512GB Toshiba OCZ RD400.


Adding another NVMe drive to the mix saw those 500MB write figures for the SATA transfers dwarfed by the NVMe drive’s performance, with over 1GB/s transfer rates for most of the tests. The 5GB Photo, 4K Movie Clip and 12GB Movie folders topped at over 2.5GB/s.
