Mushkin Enhanced, which launched its Callisto SSD range early May has unveiled a new Callisto Deluxe series featuring an improved random 4KB write rating of at least 50,000 IOPS, which up until recently has been mainly limited to OCZ’s Vertex 2.
A new Israeli startup, Anobit, thinks it has the solution to allow MLC flash to be used in the enterprise market with its Memory Single Processing technology (MSP), claiming to extend the lifespan of MLC NAND flash to 50,000 write/erase cycles, bringing it closer to the equivalent lifespan of the much more expensive SLC NAND flash.
As with each series of SSDs OCZ launches, they publish an FAQ guide on how to benchmark the drives on their discussion forum. So as usual with the Vertex 2, they gave information on the proper procedcures on benchmarking the Vertex 2 in this thread on their forum.
During the Computex event, TweakTown reviewers managed to get their hands on an A-DATA’s pre-production SSD for a few hours at their booth to carry out some of TweakTown’s standard benchmarks. As this is an early pre-production drive, they were unable to provide detailed specifications of the drive in their preview, however, this did not stop them from being able to carry out and publish their benchmarks.
ADATA has unveiled a sneak preview of its latest SSD series at the Computex 2010 event at Taipei, the S501 series, which feature a Marvell controller, SATA 6Gbps interface, 128MB of cache and uses 34nm NAND, according to Hexus.
