Mushkin presents new SSD line

The memory and SSD maker Mushkin has presented a new SSD line that goes by the name of Reactor. The interesting thing is that the new line includes a single solid-state drive model – at least for now.

The drive in question features a capacity of 1 TB and includes a Silicon Motion SM2246EN memory controller. Despite the four-channeled design of the controller and thanks to its large capacity the SSD features high read and write speeds of 560 MB/sec and 460 MB/sec, respectively. Moreover when randomly reading and writing 4K blocks the SSD offers 74000 IOPS and 76000 IOPS, correspondingly, which is not bad at all.

Being a modern device the new Mushkin Reactor SSD 1 TB comes with all the technologies that are expected from it – support for SATA 3.0, TRIM and SMART. The drive comes in the common 2.5-inch form factor and is just 7 mm thick, which means it can be used in ultrabooks and notebooks as well. There’s no data on how much energy it needs but we doubt the Reactor is power hungry. The drive has a 3-year warranty and sells for USD 380.
