    Patriot Memory, a global pioneer in high-performance memory, NAND flash and computer technology, today announced the release of their Torqx SSD Series.

    The Torqx SSD line is one of Patriot's latest releases designed with Patriot's new cutting-edge technology that adds 64MB of DRAM cache in conjunction with its current equipped NAND technology.

    "With SSD technologies becoming more 'mainstream' in the consumer market, Patriot's goal is to give their customers discretion across their purchasing preferences," says Meng J. Choo, Patriot's Flash Product Manager. "In these tough economic times, consumers are looking for options; our goal is to give them that opportunity to add new technology, and have no reservations about their decisions."

    Sounds good, how about $200 bucks tops for that 256gb SSD?

    I've always WISHED drive manufacturers would include better cache ram :\ - Even if they just fitted the drive with a SODIMM socket or something and we can choose our OWN cache ram clip?

    Took this long for THEM to figure it out?

    Better late than never.

    No name bashing, that comes across at worst as racist or at best as ridicule.

    Unless of course it is the NAME OF THE PRODUCT...

    I'm SO PLEASED yet another SSD product has a name with an X at the end. Those X's really add value dont they? Without the X people might perceive the drive to be slower than the competition's "X" model.

    Well, I'm going to RAID 3 of these together so I can rest peacefully at night knowing my high-speed pr0n is safe.
    btarunr says thanks.

    As long as these SSD's don't use the crappy JMicron controller, all is well. The more SSD's there are, the lower the prices will get eventually.
