Patriot

At this year's CES, Patriot has introduced an enhanced version of its EVLVR (Evolver) Thunderbolt 3 external SSD. The new drive is set to offer radically improved sequential read/write performance versus the earlier EVLVR, and will come in capacities of up to 2 TB.

Patriot’s original EVLVR was based on Phison’s PS5008-E8 chip, which a low-cost controller featuring four NAND channels...
