The Torqx 2 is a new line of SSDs from Patriot Memory, which was announced and started shipping at the beginning of the month. Available in 32GB to 256GB capacities, the SATA 3Gb/s drive uses a rarely seen Phison controller to deliver read speeds of 270MB/s and writes of 230MB/s. We put this 2.5-inch drive through its paces and stack it up against its competitors.

I'm not sure I would buy this drive at half the current selling price.

Do you think it suffers from the stuttering performance of the original jmicron drives?

We didn't see stuttering, note, it doesn't use a JMicron controller. Regardless though, we can't justify this drive at the current prices, Patriot didn't think this through very well.

Don't count on the drive being heavily discounted just because it's slow - the flash and DRAM still cost the same, no matter how slow the controller is.

You're right...I'd expect discounts based on inventory not moving. I just can't see any case why someone would buy this drive right now. Given that - eventually Patriot will have to take the loss and sell these for what they can.
