What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Its performance is about on par with that of a typical high-performance harddrive - far away from other common SSDs today.
by techPowerUp!
This move alone, probably for cost, has a significant effect on performance because the number of flash channels is reduced by half.
by techPowerUp!
However, when used on a SATA 6 Gbps port the drive will only provide up to 300 MB/s throughput.

If it were priced at $199, to achieve a solid-state price per GB leadership it could become interesting for specific applications.
by techPowerUp!
However, with a price of $225 at this time for the 128 GB variant, the drive is just too expensive to be able to find a niche for itself.

The Patriot Torqx 2 128 GB SSD is based on the less-well-known Phison PS3105 flash controller which is a cost effective alternative to more expensive controllers from Indilinx or SandForce, for example.

Patriot is targeting the drive specifically at users who do not yet have the fast SATA 6 Gbps interface in their computer.

Being headquartered in the United States they promise leading quality without compromise for quality.
