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 …
