Here we get our first look at the Patriot Torqx 2. It's actually really difficult to get a good picture that shows the Torqx 2 logo since it's a reflective chrome finish. The capacity size is listed right on the front and it also shows that the drive can use SATA I or SATA II connections.

The back of the drive lists the model and serial numbers. Also, you will see the four mounting locations on the back of the drive where they should be.

The side of the drive also has the standard four mounting locations.

The SATA power and data connectors are offset to their proper location.

It's impossible to get the PCB out of the drive case without destroying the plastic wedge retainers, so we only have a shot of this side of the drive. Patriot used a Phison P33105 controller and paired it with a Hynix cache module and Toshiba flash.
