When Intel Z170 motherboards came out we were introduced to USB 3.1. USB 3.1 doubles the speed of USB 3.0 from 5 gbps to 10 gbps! With all of these new motherboards offering USB 3.1 connectivity we are starting to see many new USB 3.1 devices. Today we are taking a look at Patriot’s latest USB 3.1 flash drive, the Supersonic Magnum 2. This drive has advertised read and write speeds of 400 MB/s and 300 MB/s respectively, making it one of the fastest flash drives currently available. Today we will be taking a look at the 256GB version, which happens to be the lowest capacity that Patriot offers. Let’s take a look and see just how fast it is!

The Patriot Supersonic Magnum 2 comes in an informative retail package that lets us know the capacity as well as expected speeds of the drive.
The front of the package is actually open so you can get a good look at the drive before you buy it. Flipping over to the back there is even more information about the drive.
When you get everything out of the package all you have the Supersonic Magnum 2 flash drive.
