Patriot Burst 240GB 2.5″ SATA III SSD Review


Our test platform is the latest AMD Ryzen 2200G APU installed on the ASRock X370 Gaming ITX motherboard. As a system drive has been used Patriot Scorch 256GB SSD which you will see in our next storage review in couple of days. Except that in the box is 16GB of Patriot Viper LED DDR4-3200 memory which works at XMP settings so DDR4-3200. Used operating system is Windows 10 x64 with the latest updates. We can say that this platform is a budget gaming PC but also performs well.

Let’s start with ATTO Disk Benchmark.

Patriot declared ATTO performance at about 555MB/s read and 500MB/s write. In our tests results are clearly better. Each run gives us bandwidth at about 561MB/s read and 543MB/s write what is pretty big difference. Maximum bandwidth is also one of the best we have seen on the SATA SSD.

CrystalDiskMark is showing us similar situation. Results are better than expected. Sequential bandwidth is up to 560MB/s read and 505MB/s write.

A bit worse looks random performance and I guess it’s because of quite small and not the fastest cache. 27MB/s 4KiB Q1T1 is still not bad but let’s say it’s just standard for SATA SSD and we’ve seen faster Patriot drives in the past.

Anvil’s Storage Utilities is always showing lower results so it’s not a surprise that also here we see quite low bandwidth comparing to previous tests. Some readers wish to see these results but I wouldn’t focus much on them.

At the end PCMark 10 which is showing general performance of our PC.


Even though scores are not telling us much then we can compare them to other hardware and that says it’s not bad and actually our results are pretty good.

The Burst SSD handles all operations well. There are no delays during work so most users will find it perfect for daily work. More demanding users should take a look at M.2 NVMe SSD like Scorch or Hellfire. Both are offering higher performance but also cost more so all depends what we need.
