Patriot Torqx 64GB SSD

Patriot themselves are touting their new range of Torqx SSDs as ‘the fastest SSDs in the world’ – a bold claim! Unfortunately, not a particularly accurate claim though as there are a good many drives that are faster than the Torqx.

Where the Torqx does perform very well in terms of performance, is with multi-threaded Random reading, and to a slightly lesser extent, writing. For single-threaded Random testing and also Sequential reading and writing, the Torqx is pretty much in the average bracket amongst it’s current peers.

Price-wise, the Torqx came in at £191 at the time of writing, taking it’s cost per GB to £2.98 – quite high. But, with a class leading 10 year warranty, this could be the SSD for you if you are going to be using applications and a platform that make the most out of multi-threaded operations. If this is the case, it’s certainly worth looking at.

Speed Tests

  • Sequential Read Speed: ~186MB/s
  • Sequential Write Speed: ~91MB/s
  • Random Access Read Speed: ~25MB/s

A top warranty for the Torqx will see you through it’s life and if multi-threading’s your thing, well worth a look.
