Boost your system performance with the Patriot Torqx 2 SSDs and maximize your computing experience. The Patriot Torqx 2 SSDs breathes new life into your system by supercharging all your computing tasks - including mundane day-to-day productivity and web browsing tasks as well as PC gaming - for virtually instant system response with each mouse click.

A cutting-edge new SSD controller architecture enables the Patriot Torqx 2 to achieve read speeds up to 270MB/s and completely take advantage of the SATA 3.0 Gb/s interface. Write speeds up to 230MB/s ensure quick software installations and creation of large files with the Patriot Torqx 2 for an unmatched computing experience.

  • newegg Cost-effective Performance The Patriot Torqx 2 SSDs are designed and built for cost-effective performance. By leveraging a cutting-edge new SSD controller with 128MB DRAM cache and high-quality 3x-nm NAND flash, the Torqx 2 achieves up to 270MB/s of sequential read speeds and up to 230MB/s of sequential write speeds for a noticeable performance boost with daily computing tasks. For desktops and notebooks lack of SATA 6.0 Gb/s, the Torqx 2 delivers the perfect balance of price and performance. (Based on internal ATTO Disk Benchmark testing.)
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to enhanced performance, a Torqx 2 SSD upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability.
  • newegg Trim Support Patriot Torqx 2 SSDs offer native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.

3 out of 5 eggsBuyer's remorse

Pros: Way faster, quieter, cooler, and less power draw when either idle or active, than the WD raptor I am replacing in my desktop.

25 dollar rebate cart brought it down to 200 bucks.

Bundled with Acronis home edition for extra 20 bucks made cloning my boot drive pretty painless!

Supposed to have native TRIM support under Windows 7, but I haven't tried to confirm or configure.

Cons: Costs as much as an OCZ vertex 2 of the same size, but interwebs say it is almost half as fast as the OCZ vertex 2; it doesn't use the currently popular SSD controller.

Does not come with any brackets for mounting in a standard desktop. A bundle with a bracket would be nice wink wink.

Advertised both on newegg and the product page on the patriot site as having a 3 year warranty, but the back of box and box liner say it only has a 2 year warranty.

There's no explanation on patriot forums or in the box about enabling TRIM commands, or what drivers to use. Maybe it will just work out of the box.

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 told my wife that my Raptor was throwing SMART errors. I figured this was a great time to buy an SSD and then go RMA the Raptor.

Coworkers recommended the OCZ Vertex 2, but the prices were slightly higher, and every 5th user review complained about their OCZ bricking in a few months. My motherboard doesn't support 6gb throughput, so I wasn't sure it would matter.

Using the Torqx 2 with Windows 7 Ultimate and 8gb ram, startup times are much faster on boot, and app startup time when logged in is perceptually snappy. I didn't measure before and after speeds.

I used a large black metal binder clip to hold it in place in a quick-change drive bay. Seems to work ok, with very little extra pressure.

In order to clone the boot drive to the SSD, I fixed bad drive sectors with windows disk scan, moved the page file off the boot drive, purged more files so the drive would fit onto the SSD.
