editor's comments:- March 2013 - Patriot Memory is a me-too supplier of consumer SSDs. The company has never been listed in the Top SSD Companies List, nor in the fastest SSDs list.

selected mentions of Patriot SSDs in SSD market history

  • In May 2009 - Patriot Memory launched its Torqx line of SATA compatible 2.5" flash SSDs with 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities. The new models include 64MB of DRAM cache and deliver upto up to 260MB/s read, 180MB/s write speeds. OS support includes:- WindowsXP, Vista, Linux, and Mac OS X.

    In June 2009 - Tom's Hardware published a benchmark article - Patriot Memory's Torqx SSD Beats Intel's X25-M .

    In December 2010 - Patriot Memory launched a single chip native USB 3 flash drive - which offers faster performance than other designs which use include a USB bridge chip.

    In March 2013 - Patriot's SSD product line still looks thin and me-too.

    A report in speculated that Patriot may phase out its own SSD products.

    That could be due to a problem which is symptomatic for many consumer SSD companies. Although the SSD market is large and growing - most SSD companies don't have any worthwhile SSD IP, and many consumer companies aren't doing anything different to 100 plus other SSD competitors.
