Patriot Launches Torqx TRB Solid-State Drives

Patriot Memory, a global pioneer in high-performance memory, NAND flash and computer technology, today announced the immediate availability of the Torqx TRB series of solid-state-drives (SSDs). The Torqx TRB series of SSD offer improved system responsiveness with quicker boot times and shorter application loading times over traditional hard disk drive storage solutions.

Patriot’s Torqx TRB series, available in 32GB and 64GB capacities, is designed around the latest generation controller from JMicron: JMF616. With a controller level cache of 64MB DDR2, the Torqx TRB series provide stutter-free performance and offer speeds of up to 260MB/s Read and up to 115MB/s Write. To maintain performance integrity over the life of the drive, the Torqx TRB series SSDs include native support for the TRIM command in Microsoft Windows 7.

“As solid-state drive technology advances, we are able to develop SSD solutions that provide the performance users want while reaching the affordable price points they demand. Patriot’s objective is to offer the latest technology while providing the best performance and price options”, states Les Henry, Vice President of Engineering at Patriot. “Our Torqx TRB family of SSDs meet these goals. Users upgrading with a Torqx TRB SSD will benefit from improved transfer rates, quicker boot times and the reliability of solid-state storage in their boot drive option. Including a Torqx SSD in your desktop or notebook upgrade plans provides one of the best bang-for-the buck improvements you can make to your system.”

The Torqx TRB family of SSDs are durable and reliable, with an aluminum housing to minimize typical wear and tear. With NAND memory at their core, there are no moving parts to fail, or be damaged from daily use in portable computing solutions and system boot times are drastically reduced. Additionally, the Torqx TRB family of SSDs provide incredible performance, silent low-power operation and a 3-year warranty.

God I hate Patriot ssd's. I own a ps-100 that is absolute junk and a WarpV2 that was also junk. Unless its on a sandforce controller or something else a little more reliable I would stay far far far far away from patriot ssd's

Were they on he old jmicron controllers though? i know the old ones sucked but apparantly they fixed most of the problems with the new ones that i assume this is using "is designed around the latest generation controller from JMicron: JMF616" so i would hope this is not as bad as your experiance with their other drives, i admit though the problems with the old controllers have made me want to avoid even their new ones unless their sats 6gb/s can be proven to be better than the sandforce sata 6gb/s controllers.

Even the old controllers on Kingston V-Series were significantly improved. Plus they had no cache at all. This one is using new controller and 64MB of write cache. And since it's not Sandforce or Indilinx, it should be significantly cheaper as well.
