Mushkin Shipping 1.8-inch Chronos GO SSDs

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 9 comments

Mushkin's new range of Chronus SSDs feature a lighter footprint, improved reliability and higher performance when compared to the Chronus Deluxe.

Mushkin has announced the global availability of its new range of 1.8" Chronus GO SATA III (6 GB/s) solid state drives that will be available in capacities of 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB. The Chronus series was initially targeted towards enterprise users and has since been "adapted and re-engineered to deliver the highest possible storage capacity in a drive that is optimized for high-performance and ultimate reliability."

Though we've not yet seen the Chronus GO's technical documentation, we expect that it will have performance that is on par, if not better than its predecessor Chronus Deluxe. The latter range of SSDs feature maximum read and write speeds of up to 560 MB/s and 520 MB/s respectively, 90,000 IOPS and an MTBF of at least 2,000,000 hours.

"Mushkin continues to push the envelope with higher performance, higher capacity and higher reliability products, and the new line of 1.8-inch Chronos(TM) GO SATA III (6Gbps) SSDs is just one example," said Nicolas Villalobos, Director of Global Marketing at Mushkin Inc. "With these improvements, the new drives are very well-suited for professionals and for solution providers in demanding environments like digital signage, healthcare and point-of-sale."

    The name is "Chronos". The only place you spelled it correctly was in the headline.

    I'm liking the SSD's and I find the smaller form a little exciting. I'm just not thrilled with the current pricing of those little guys. Shucks, and I wanted one (or more) for my next project... it can wait I guess

    Have an early Mushkin 60gb SSD (think early 2010) and it is still running great. Never had RAM from them fail either, infact the 4x2gb DDR2 1066 kits from my old rig that I sold on ebay held on to their value very well.
