After Mushkin's Callisto and Chronos 2.5" SSD lines, several new products are expanding the company's reach in the flash memory segment.

New to the Mushkin product lineup is a 1.8" form factor SSD called Chronos GO. For mobile computing, Chronos GO offers fast throughput in a small package. Available in both standard (built with asynchronous NAND flash) and Deluxe (built with synchronous NAND flash) versions, Chronos GO touts read and write speeds of 560MB/s and 525MB/s, with the synchronous versions offering performance with multimedia data.

Mushkin also announced the Atlas mSATA SSD. This LSI SandForce SF-2281-driven MO-300B form factor drive will provide 3rd generation SATA performance in 30 to 240GB capacities. Both value-oriented models (built with asynchronous NAND flash) and performance units (built with synchronous mode flash) are planned. Maximum sequential read and write speeds are 560MB/s and 535MB/s, respectively.

Mushkin's first PCIe SSD, the Scorpion, with initial densities of 240, 480 and 960GB, is poised to become the primary data storage device of enthusiasts and professionals requiring workstation-class performance and reliability. Rated at up to 1,275MB/s sequential read, 1,500MB/s sequential write, and120,000 4K random write IOPS, the Scorpion ushers in an era of SSD technology in which both speed and available storage are easily within reach.
