Power users looking to pick up a potent solid state drive (SSD) now have yet another option to choose from, this one coming from Mushkin. The new series is called Callisto and comes built around the highly touted Sandforce SF-1200 controller found on other top tier SSDs.
"The Callisto SSDs continue Mushkin Enhanced's tradition of high-performance, high-reliability flash storage products and we're very pleased with the performance and responsiveness this product provides. We're confident the Callisto will not only meet the expectations of the market, but exceed them," said Brian Flood, Mushkin Enhanced director of product development.
Available in 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB capacities, all three drives feature read and write speeds up to 285MB/s and 275MB/s, respectively. Mushkin offered up few other details about its new Callisto series, though we suspect they also come equipped with 64MB of cache.
Pricing for the drives have been set to $219 (60GB), $370 (120GB) and $667 (240GB).
