Mushkin launches ATLAS VITAL SSD line

The US maker of memory and SSDs Mushkin has announced a new solid-state drive line called ATLAS VITAL. The line includes M.2 form factor SSDs and targets owners of ultrabooks, notebooks and small form-factor PCs no matter what kinds of applications users run on these machines.

The ATLAS VITAL comes powered by Seagate’s SandForce SF-2000 memory controller and includes support for SATA 3.0. This is the reason why the new solid-state drives reach sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 535 MB/sec. The 4K random transactional performance of the SSDs goes as high as 86 000 IOPS.

“With our latest ATLAS VITAL M.2 series, budget-conscious users can now experience Mushkin-enhanced SSDs in their ultrabooks, notebooks and small form-factor PCs such as the recently-released M.2-compatible Intel NUC,” said Brian Flood, Director of Product Development.

The ATLAS VITAL line is comprised of five different models with capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB, 250 GB, 480 GB and 500 GB. The drives are now available at all Mushkin retailers, but there is no word on how much they cost.
