Mushkin presents the Chronos G2 SSD line
The famous manufacturer of computer memory, SSDs, USB flash drives and power supply units Mushkin has officially announced the Chronos G2 line of solid-state drives. The main feature of the new drives is that they will allow budget-oriented customers to enter the world of SSDs with no compromise in quality and performance – or so Mushkin says.
In fact when you look at a Chronos G2 drive you will not have a reason to doubt its capabilities – all the drives are made in the United States and not in East Asia and all of them offer more than decent performance. Based on SandForce SF-2000 series controllers, the drives measure 100.2 x 70 x 7 mm and are rated for 1.5 million hours MTBF. There are four capacities to choose from – 60 GB, 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB and depending on the model chosen you can expect read speeds of up to 555 MB/sec and write speeds of up to 535 MB/sec. All drives support SATA 3.0 and have shock tolerance of 1500G and a three-year warranty.
“If you want the most innovative Mushkin SSD ever, you’ll have to be more specific. Mushkin doesn’t only focus on launching new and innovative storage and memory solutions, we are always looking for new ways to enhance our existing products as we are doing with our value Chronos G2,” said Nicolas Villalobos, Director of Global Marketing at Mushkin Inc.”A reincarnation of the legendary Chronos, the Chronos G2 Series was born to stand out from the crowd. Its competition-surpassing value gives Mushkin’s Value SSD an oversized attitude.”
The new SSD line is on the market now but unfortunately there’s no information on how much one of these SSDs costs.
