Mushkin Makes an SSD Using the New SandForce Controller

Paul Lilly

It didn't take long for memory makers to employ SandForce's brand-spanking-new SF-2000 series controller on the next generation of SSDs. First out of the gate is Mushkin, which just announced new SSDs based on the enterprise-class SF-2500 and SF-2600 processors.

SandForce's updated controllers take advantage of the SATA 6Gb/s interface, and as such, the new Mushkin drives offer up to 500MB/s read and write sequential transfers, and up to 60,000 sustained read and write IOPS. Other enterprisey features include advanced ECC with up to 55 bits correctable per 512-byte sector, and power/performance throttling..
