Torque: Steel vs. Graphite Shafts

Yes, unless you pay alot of money for the graphite.

Nominal torque for steel shafts is about 2.7*. Graphite is considered
low torque if it is less than 4*.

  Yes...

Steel will usually be under 2.0
I think 1.2 -1.8 is pretty common.
There are now graphite shafts available in 2.0
torque, in all flexs.
