Patriot Torqx 2 256GB Solid State Drive Review - PCSTATS.com Patriot Torqx 2 256GB Solid State Drive Review
Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 12:03PM | Filed under: Hard Drives| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"Back in May we previewed the Patriot Torqx 2 120GB solid state drive and found that it offered average mainstream performance that was better than the large OEM system builder solutions. In short, that was code for saying the 120GB model sucked for enthusiasts, but then again, this isn't an enthusiast SSD. The Torqx 2 did offer low access times that were a lot less than platter drives, so Twitface and web surfers still get the SSD feel, but only see small performance increases when transferring data. After Patriot released the Torqx 2, they followed it up with the 2011 flagship WildFire that uses a SandForce SF-2281 controller and synchronous flash, and then the Pyro that uses the same SandForce SF-2281 controller, but paired it with asynchronous flash. The price difference between the Pyro and the Torqx 2 at the time of writing is very small, so that leads us to wonder what Patriot is planning to do with the Torqx 2 and the long established Torqx Series of products all together."
