Patriot P210 SATA 3 1TB SSD 2.5 Inch
About this deal
Patriot P210 is using SMI SM2259XT SSD controller to connect the NAND memory to the SATA/AHCI interface. The controller has Single-core, 4-ch, 4-CE/ch configuration.

Typically, SSD controllers are microprocessors. In this case we have Single-core, 4-ch, 4-CE/ch processor The secure erase tool can be useful for permanently deleting data from a Patriot solid state drive while the optimizations may be performed to hopefully improve the performance of your device. The optimization works by freeing up space that's occupied by data that's no longer required.Patriot P210 has no separate DRAM chip to store the SD mapping tables to speeds up the data access.

Some games may not even read from your storage device very often. If you have an adequate amount of memory (RAM), optimized closed-world games may load much of the level into memory as the level first loads. Memory is much faster than even a solid-state drive, so it makes sense for a game to keep game data in memory when it can. Learn more about recommended memory capacities in my article, How Much RAM Do You Need for Gaming? .
Hard disk drives will extract files slower due to the resulting files being non-contiguous (i.e., spread out across the disk). Because storage device writes are often slower than reading speeds, we've found that game installs/ patches can be pretty frustrating to wait for if you're using a slower storage device. For gaming, this means that your levels could load 35x faster by upgrading to the latest SSD devices and PCI-Express versions. This speed increase assumes that level data is collected into files that correlate with the level or map region. Unoptimized games with no asset organization could see a 1000x performance boost when loading data. All in all, this utility is pretty basic but does provide some functions but only for Patriot devices.
