Read Tests

The Samsung controller found in the Patriot Torqx M28 does a really good job in keeping the reads level and as you can see here the drive performs very well across the entire range.

 


Write Tests

The STR write speed is a little bumpy but the lowest dips are few and far between. The M28 has an average write speed of just under 150MB/s which is very fast for a product in this price range.
