Patriot has been on the charge with their SSD line-up. It started out when they entered the market with the Warp Series and now we are on the second version of the Torqx drive. Patriot has even launched their first Apple specific model, the KOI.
The Torqx M28 is a different breed from the Torqx we tested back in June. The first Torqx product used the Indilinx Barefoot controller with 64MB of cache. The latest version, the M28 has 128MB of cache and uses a Samsung controller. This isn't the first time we have tested a drive with the Samsung chip, the Kingston V+ Series, Corsair P256 and P64 drives that we tested in RAID also use the same controller.
One of the best features of this controller is its ability to keep track of deleted files in the hardware, on the drive itself. At this time the Samsung drives are the only available to do this and it makes routine maintenance non-existent since the drive handles garbage collection for you. It should also be noted that this automatic cleanup works in RAID arrays as well, an area where the Barefoot is still having trouble even with their wiper.exe software program.
Let's take a look at the specifications and get to the benchmarks from this drive on our new storage product test system.
