One of the smaller and lesser known yearly events is the Flash Summit. This is a venue for our leading memory manufacturers to show off their latest flash and SSD drives. This year, one of the bigger announcements was from Mushkin, who unveiled their new Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSD and Ventura Ultra 3.0 products.
What makes these drives so special? Raw unmatched performance. The Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSD can reach up to 2165 MB/s read and 1990 MB/s write making it up to 4 times faster than the fastest available SATA 3.0 SSD. The Ventura Ultra USB 3.0 drive also blows any competition out of the water with speeds up to 455 MB/s read and 445 MB/s write, in a 240GB capacity.
Both of these ridiculously fast drives are slated to be available at the end of August 2013 which is right about now. Keep your eye out if you want performance like this or just start searching for the Venture Ultra or the Scorpion Deluxe and someone will have it up soon. No pricing or availability was announced.
