PATRIOT, a global leader in performance memory, SSDs, gaming peripherals, and flash storage solutions today has announced the availability of the EVLVR Thunderbolt 3 external SSD, offering a breakthrough evolution in SSD technology. The amount of data that users transfer and store has been getting larger over the years due to major evolutions in technology and the ability to quickly process large amounts of data. Ideal for HD content, portable boot drives, video game libraries, high capacity jobs and more, Patriot’s EVLVR Thunderbolt 3 external SSD brings fast speeds and convenience for consumers everywhere.

“EVLVR” is an abbreviation for “Evolver”, and the technology itself presents a breakthrough evolution in SSD technology. “We dedicate to offer power users an evolutive idea about an SSD product, evolving appearance with an evolutionary technology, that’s how EVLVR has been created. It’s perfect for video editing, photography, multi-app usage, and more content creation. “said Les Henry, Vice President of Engineering at Patriot, “Our R&D team especially proud of implementing Thunderbolt 3 which allows Patriot to build such portable storage solutions with blasting-speed and ultra-quality,” he added.

With unparalleled speed delivered by the Phison E8 PCIe controller and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, the EVLVR can reach up to 1600 MB/s in sequential read and up to 1000 MB/s in sequential write speeds with the help of an internal PCIe SSD. In addition, the Thunderbolt 3 technology can reach speeds up to 40 Gb/s – up to 8 times faster than USB 3.0.

Thanks to Thunderbolt technology, users can experience the speed of Thunderbolt 3 with transfers of 4K video in under 30 seconds. The EVLVR does not require any external power supply and is entirely self-powered from the laptop, desktop and other devices with a Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C connection. Data can be transferred while simultaneously charging the devices over a single USB type-C port thus reducing the number of cables needed when operating an external SSD.
