Mach Xtreme: Performance And Packaging To The Max

Taiwan-based Mach Xtreme Technology started the Summer with the July release of its MX-DS Fusion series of 2.5-inch mobile and desktop SSD drives. The MX-DS Fusion comes in capacities ranging from 60 GBs to 240 GBs, and features a high-performance 6-Gbit-per-second SATA interface.

The 240-GB model features a maximum read speed of 450 MBs per second, and a maximum write speed of 420 MBs per second. They also feature the company's DuraWrite technology, which optimizes writes to the flash memory over conventional controllers along with intelligent block management and wear leveling to increase overall endurance and reliability.

Mach Xtreme, unlike more boring SSD vendors, actually engages a European graffiti artist to design its packaging and marketing materials.
