Today we are comparing the Patriot Torqx SSD to other 2.5 inch drives that we've reviewed in the past.

 

All of the drives tested were performed on the listed system under identical conditions to ensure true apples to apples performance results for comparison.

 

ATTO Baseline Performance

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

 

ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers. We use these numbers to observe the drive under ideal conditions.

 

Patriot Torqx 128GB Indlinx MLC Solid State Disk

 

The Patriot Torqx is a very fast MLC SSD, but it falls short of the claimed 260 MB/s read speeds. Still, 230 MB/s is very fast and the 194 MB/s write speed is higher than the claimed 180 MB/s.
