Mushkin announces world’s largest capacity mSATA Solid-State Drive-Atlas 480GB mSATA
Mushkin, manufacturer of high-performance and mission-critical computer products 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 up a colossal 480 gigabytes (GB) of storage capacity on a single mSATA module.
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” said Brian Flood, Director of Product Development at Mushkin. Mushkin’s Atlas 480GB mSATA will be available for approximately $499.99 and the drive is covered by a three-year limited warranty.
