Mushkin Announce Up To 2.1GB/s 1920GB “Scorpion Deluxe” PCIe SSDs

If the 1600GB ADATA SSD we covered at Computex 2013 was your thing then this new Scorpion Deluxe SSD from Mushkin will definitely interest you too. Unlike the ADATA SSD which used a 2.5″ form factor but a PCI Express 4X cable to a PCI Express add-in-card, the Mushkin Scorpion deluxe skips that and goes straight in with a PCI Express interface that us 8X in terms of length. This allows for transfer speeds of up to a staggering 2100MB/s or 2.1GB/s and up to 100K random write IOPS.

Mushkin will be making the Scorpion Deluxe PCI Express SSDs available in 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB capacities. Mushkin are using a Sandforce driven SSD controller (SF-2281) and are offering a 3 year warranty. If you’ve got a lot of cash to spend then Mushkin claim these PCI Express SSDs are scalable in up to 4 way configurations.

While these devices certainly aren’t for everyone, the wide variety of sizes does mean the lower capacity drives will be accessible at a consumer level, much like OCZ’s Revo drives. You can get more information here. Mushkin expect these drives to become available from mid-June onwards and pricing has yet to be disclosed but you can expect them to be significantly more expensive than equivalent capacity SATA III SSDs as they are mainly aimed at the content professionals market.

    PCIe slots are much more useful for video cards rather than put SSD’s on them, also the fact that a PCIe SSD would definitely be more expensive than a GTX Titan, other than that, the normal 2.5″ SSD’s do still a good job, you wouldn’t need for the Windows+supporting software more than 80GB at most.

      Most of the enterprise SSDs are PCI-E.
      And most of them are not made for enthusiast market.

        So you’re saying that enterprises start migrating from those multi-hard drive interfaces where you would just put them in a slot, to this? In my opinion that isn’t quite cheap and much more inflexible.

          OCZ already have some of these starting from 256GB models for pasr 2 years or so. They still sell them. That implies that enterprises use them. Otherwise OCZ won’t be selling those anymore, which is not the case.
          I may be wrong int the way of my thinking.

    At least someone’s making them.
    These are the future mainstream technology. 🙂

      Probably not. SATA express should fulfill that role until the next big thing comes around.

        I dunno. It was one of my speculations. :-/

    Too rich for my blood thanks.

      I hope these will get cheaper, in time.
