Mushkin Expands Award-Winning Atlas deluxe(TM) Product Line with World’s Fastest 30GB mSATA Solid-State Drive

As you know, we are a huge proponent of SSD caching, and think every single system should have it installed now. And with motherboards such as the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H include an mSATA adapter onboard, setting up a cached system can be clean and easy. One problem with lower capcity SSDs is that with fewer NAND channels going to the controller, performance can suffer. And although a 30 GB cache can give you a noticeable performance gain, you may not be getting as much as possible out of it. In that case, you might want to check out Mushkin’s new Atlas Deluxe 30GB: Using 32nm toggle flash allows Mushkin to pack in more NAND dies per chip than they would with MLC flash. This saturates the SandForce controller as much as possible for a 30GB SSD, and the specs reflect this: 555 MB/s read, 365 MB/s write, and 92K read and 70K write IOPS at 4K random.
