First up is ATTO Disk Benchmark. The Solid 2 is on the left and the Torqx is on the right.

Despite the difference in how the chart was plotted by ATTO, once the reads and writes level out we see that the OCZ drive is about 30 MB/sec faster on both reads and writes.

Let's see what CrystalDiskMark reveals. Again, the Solid 2 is on the left and the Torqx is on the right.

Again the OCZ drive takes the lead here in all but the 4k write test, lagging behind the Patriot drive by roughly .5 MB/s.

Next up is HD Tune.

Results in HD tune are a little closer. The Patriot drive is 8 MB/sec faster on the minimum side but about 7.5 MB/sec slower on at maximum and almost 8 MB/sec slower on average. The Patriot drive did, however, report a slightly faster Burst Rate, 1.3 MB/sec higher than the OCZ drive.

SiSoft Sandra has two drive benchmarks that I used: File Systems and Physical Disk. First is the File System test.

Sandra's File Systems test shows the OCZ drive is about 9 MB/s faster and has a faster random access time too: 3.65ms vs. 3.9ms (lower is better).

Finally let's check out the Physical Disk results.

The trend continues with the Solid 2 unit pulling ahead in the drive score and access time.

Let's move ahead and wrap things up.
