Patriot launches cheap Torch SSDs

The US memory and SSD maker Patriot has started the sales of two new SSD models that belong to the company’s Torch line of solid-state drives. The new company products can now be found online at retailers such as Amazon.

The two new models offer 120 GB and 240 GB capacities but share the same 2.5-inch form factor; the thickness is also the same at just 7 mm which allows the drives to be used in notebooks and ultrabooks. The SSDs are based on the well-known Phison PS3110 memory controller and make use of 16 nm MLC NAND flash memory. Thanks to support for SATA 3.0 the new solid-state drives reach 545 MB/sec of read speed and 430 MB/sec of read speed for the 120 GB model and 555 MB/sec of read speed and 535 MB/sec of write speed for the 240 GB model.

The recommended price of the Patriot Torch 120 GB is just USD 67 while the 240 GB model will cost you USD 106.
