Mushkin Unveils World's First 480-GB mSATA Solid-State Drive
Austin, Texas-based Mushkin in December said it will start shipping the world's largest capacity mSATA solid-state drive in after the new year. That drive, part of Mushkin's Atlas family of mSATA drives, provides 480 GBs of storage capacity on a single mSATA module.
The drive includes high-speed MLC NAND flash memory, a SandForce SF-2281 SSD processor, a 6-Gbps SATA interface, TRIM support, S.M.A.R.T. (self-monitoring, analysis, and reporting technology) support, and built-in error correction code.
Available with a three-year limited warranty, Mushkin's Atlas 480-GB mSATA SSD is slated to ship in January of 2013 with a list price of $499.99.
