Patriot

Phison introduced a reference design for entry-level Thunderbolt 3 SSDs at the 2018 CES. Patriot was one of the first to announce a product based on the reference design - the Patriot Evlvr comes with a PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe SSD sporting the Phison E8 controller and Toshiba BiCS 3D TLC NAND. An Alpine Ridge Thunderbolt controller bridges the NVMe SSD to a Thunderbolt 3 device port. The PCIe 3.0 x2 link means that the product is not going to set any benchmark records. However, Patriot plans to make it quite wallet-friendly. Read on to find out how the product performs, particularly in the price to performance ratio aspect.
