You can read more about TweakTown's Storage Product Testing Workstation and the procedures followed to test products in this article.

 

The Patriot Torqx 2 uses the SATA II (SATA 3G) interface which is native on every motherboard sold in the last three years.

 

 

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.

Using ATTO we were able to coax just over 260MB/s read and just fewer than 235MB/s write speeds. This is way off from the new Patriot Pyro that costs just a couple of Dollars more and even less than the Patriot Inferno from 2010 that you can find on e-tail websites for the same amount of money.
