Mushkin Showcases New Reactor Solid-State Drives

Mushkin Enhanced is about to launch a new series of top-tier SSDs within the framework of Reactor series. The series, represented by three models of 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB capacity, is targeting up-to-date gaming and high-performance systems. The greenhorns are developed in 2.5-inch form-factor with 7 mm thickness only and SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface.



Mushkin Reactor drives take Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller in cooperation with MLC NAND flash-memory as the basis. Their utmost sequential data transfer speed equals to 560 Mb/sec and 460 Mb/sec on Read/Write operations respectively, while random data transfer speed achieves 74.000 IOPS and 76.000 IOPS correspondingly.


The triple is thought to operate 1.5 million hours without failures in rather tough conditions (in working environments with up to 70 degrees temperature). All models support TRIM instructions, DevSleep mode that prolongs standalone operation of a mobile device on battery power supply, and the newest …

Adata to Launch Budgetary SSD SP600 Series

Adata has lately announced the launch of a new SSD series codenamed SP600. The drive will supplement the company's line of budgetary solutions but will feature high-end specifications. SP600 is going to have SATA III interface with the throughput capacity of 6 Gb/sec. The series will house NAND MLC flash-memory chips and JMicron JMF661 controller.




This way, Adata aims to attract customers who require outstanding performance but, at the same time, who cannot afford buying too expensive drives. In addition, this model will suit those people who would like to transit their systems from traditional hard drives to more efficient SSD solutions.


Adata SP600 will be delivered in three volume capacities, — 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB – which will be developed in 2.5-inch form-factor. All models provide for the reduction of OS loading time and the increase of overall system speed, if compared with standard HDD performance. These SSDs ensure the data transfer speed at levels of 360 …

Seagate Launches the 5th Generation FireCuda SSHD

Seagate has expanded its lineup of hybrid drives with the 5th-generation FireCuda SSHD. The greenhorns are based on shingled magnetic recording technology (SMR), rather than perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR). The SMR enables the partial superposition of data tracks; it ensures the ultimate record density. The models are backed by a 5-year’s limited warranty.



Seagate FireCuda series is introduced by 5 models, developed in 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch formats. Their capacity varies from 500 GB to 2 TB. The drives employ MLC flash memory (8 GB) as well as SATA 6 Gb/sec external interface. The spindle rotates at 5400 RPM.


The average data read speed makes up 140 MB/sec with 2.5-inch models & 156 MB/sec with 3.5-inch items. The latter offer also up to 190 MB/sec of the average read speed from flash memory; besides, it takes only 8.5-9.5 ms for the chips to search for the needed data on Read/Write operations. To add, the new FireCuda is thought to consume between 1.7-6.7 W power.
