When reading across the drive, we see that the Torqx 2 isn't a contender to the 2011 drives, but fits in closer to last year's models represented on our charts by the Vertex 2. The read access in the drive test shows the Torqx 2 is comparable in this synthetic test.

When writing across the drive, the Torqx 2 isn't as fast as the Vertex 2.
