Mushkin Releases 30 GB Atlas Deluxe mSATA SSD
Author: Cássio LimaDate: November 9, 2012 - 9:26 AM PST
Category: Storage
More Info: http://www.mushkin.com

The mSATA form factor is a standard that allows ultrathin notebook manufacturers to integrate an SSD drive in a space that is about one-third of the size of a standard business card (3 x 5 cm). The newly announced Mushkin’s 30 GB Atlas Deluxe drive is compatible with this standard, and according to the manufacturer, it is the fastest mSATA drive on the market.

The new 30 GB Atlas Deluxe features a SandForce SF-2281 controller, a SATA-600 interface, has support for TRIM and NCQ, and makes use of MLC flash memories. As for speeds, it provides 555 MB/s (read) and 365 MB/s (write).

Mushkin’s Atlas Deluxe mSATA drives were designed to work in ultrathin, high-performance SSD-based systems and can also act as a cache drive in dual drive systems. SSD caching systems have both a hard disk drive and a low-capacity SSD. These systems use software to automatically identify the most frequently used files and programs, and then access those files from the SSD, providing greater performance than a hard disk drive but at a lower price point than a stand-alone SSD.

Information on pricing was not provided.
