Mushkin Introduces SandForce SF-1200 Based Calliso SSD

If you find yourself digging through the latest happenings in the memory sector, you've surely heard of Mushkin. The company has been a huge player in the high-end RAM/memory realm for years now, but rarely would put "solid state drive" into a sentence with "Mushkin." Today, that's happening. Joining OCZ, SanDisk, Intel, and loads of other SSD rivals, Mushkin has decided to jump in headfirst with the release of their Callisto SSD.

Brian Flood, Mushkin Enhanced director of product development, had this to say about the announcement: "The Callisto SSDs continue Mushkin Enhanced's tradition of high-performance, high-reliability flash storage products and we're very pleased with the performance and responsiveness this product provides.  We're confident the Callisto will not only meet the expectations of the market, but exceed them." The high-performance angle is evident here. This device boasts read speeds of up to 285MB/s and write speeds of up to an impressive 275MB/s, and it's equipped with the new SandForce SF-1200 controller.

It's available starting today in sizes of 60GB, 120GB and 240GB, but prices have yet to be disclosed.
