CES 2012: Mushkin working on new SSDs

I keep monitoring storage-related news from the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Mushkin, a RAM and SSD manufacturer, is working hard to improve its products line-up.

The company showed three SSDs, all equipped with SandForce SF-2281 controllers. The first, called Chronos, is a 1.8″ solid state drive while the Atlas is a mSATA one. The units are really similar and they feature transfer rate over 500MB/sec. These drives can be mounted in next-gen ultrabooks and that’s the target Mushkin is looking for.

A more interesting product is the Scorpion. It’s a PCIe high-performance SSD with modular slots. It’s possible to increase both capacity and performance adding dedicated SSD boards, up to 4. I apologize for the lack of photos, Mushkin has no press room and I’m not at CES. I suggest you to visit AnandTech to watch the disks.
