Patriot Viper VP4300 M.2 PCIE Gen4 x4 2TB SSD Review

Today, we’ll be taking a quick look at the Patriot Viper VP4300 M.2 PCIE Gen4 x4 2TB SSD. It’s powered by the super fast Rainier IG5236 SSD controller from Innogrit, and supports the PCI-E 4.0 Gen4x4 standard for super fast data transfer, offering a read speeds of up to 7,400Mb/sec, and a write speed of up to 6,800Mb/sec. Our review sample has a total capacity of 2TB of 3D NAND flash memory, and comes with SLC caching and DRAM cache buffer, as well as supporting NVMe v1.4. The package includes 2 new, low profile heatshields to choose from. One is a sleek-looking aluminum heatshield, while the other is a unique super thin graphene heatshield, all of which will help reduce full load temperatures.



Confused and NAND flash memory? Well, there are several types of NAND flash memory used in most of today’s SSDs. The two most popular are SLC and MLC, and now TLC. Here’s a little background taken from HowToGeek.


Viper Gaming is a brand of Patriot Memory, a global leader in performance memory, Solid State Drives (SSD’s), and flash storage solutions. Viper Gaming was established in 2007 with the unveiling of the well-known, top-tier line of computer memory. Since then,
the Viper Gaming brand has become synonymous with elite performance and reliability among gamers worldwide.

In 2015, Viper Gaming decided to expand its product categories to include gaming keyboards, headsets, and mice. Offering entry, mid-level and high-end solutions with rich feature sets. Viper Gaming’s award-winning peripherals provide gamers everywhere the best price-for-performance and reliability that enables every Viper Gamer to dominate in their sport.




Patriot Memory has over 30 years of experience building high performance memory kits and has been providing Viper memory to the gaming enthusiast audience for over 10 years. We have harnessed that same passion to develop our line of gaming peripherals as well. Viper Gaming is committed to designing and engineering products that gamers of all kind will appreciate, plain and simple.

We’ll be putting the Viper VP4300 through its paces on our test rig, which is comprised of an AMD Ryzen 5600X, an ASRock B550 Taichi motherboard, 16GB Thermaltake Toughram RGB DDR4-3200, as well as a GeForce RTX 2080 … all powered by a Cooler Master V850 power supply.



If VP4300 SSD does what it says on the box, with read speeds of up to 7,400Mb/sec, and a write speed of up to 6,800Mb/sec … then I’m expecting truly phenomenal performance, which should make this one of the fastest SSDs we’ve tested so far. 

You can buy the Patriot Viper VP4300 Gen 4 x4 M.2 2TB SSD for around USD $449.99 from Amazon –
