The drive speeds are pretty impressive. The breakdown by SSD size follows:

The SSDs also support RAID (0, 1) and come with a 64MB cache, three year warranty and durable aluminum casing.
Patriot hasn't yet announced availability or pricing, though they claim the SSDs will feature "aggressive pricing."
