New solid state drives for Patriot Memory
The new SSDs have few moving parts so are less susceptible to wear and tear
Patriot Memory, the manufacturer of high-performance memory, NAND flash and computer technology, has announced the release of the new Torqx TRB series of solid-state-drives (SSDs).
Patriot's Torqx TRB series, available in 32GB and 64GB, is designed around the latest generation controller from JMicron: JMF616.
"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", said 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."
According to the company, this new series offers quicker boot times and shorter application loading times than traditional hard disk drive storage solutions. With a controller level cache of 64MB DDR2, the Torqx TRB series provide glitch-free performance and speeds of up to 260MB/s Read and up to 115MB/s Write. To maintain performance over the life of the drive, the Torqx TRB series SSDs include support for the TRIM command in Microsoft Windows 7.
The new SSDs are encased in aluminum housing to minimise wear and tear. With NAND memory at their core, there are no moving parts to fail, or be damaged and boot times are drastically reduced. Additionally, the Torqx TRB family come with a three-year warranty.
