Atlas 480GB mSATA
3 January 2013
Mushkin, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance computer products, has announced that it will begin shipping the world's largest capacity mSATA solid-state drive in January 2013.
As the latest addition to Mushkin's Atlas family of mSATA drives, the new solid-state drive delivers 480 gigabytes (GB) of storage capacity on a single mSATA module.
'We're excited to present our latest Atlas 480GB mSATA solid state drive, demonstrating once again Mushkin's consistent ability to combine top performance, functionality, capacity, and low-power innovation,' said Brian Flood, director of product development at Mushkin.
'Keeping z-height as low as possible and managing to fit eight NAND flash chips and a controller on a mSATA PCB was no easy feat, but now capacity-hungry ultrabook and notebook users can go beyond the 256GB mSATA barrier.'
