CES 2016: We’re here at the Mushkin suite in Las Vegas, and we’re very happy to see they’ve rolled out several new storage products for 2016. First up we have the Eco3, which features the Silicon Motion SM2256 controller, SATA 3.1 6Gb/s, and read and write speeds of 560MB/s and 515MB/s respectively with up to 87,000 IOPS. Additional features include SLC caching, Enhanced Data Protection Suite and a 3-year warranty.
The Eco3 is said to be exclusive to Newegg, at least for now, but the Triactor is virtually identical and will be available globally. No firm pricing at the moment, but expect it to be fiercely competitive.
The new 2TB reactor features the 2246 Silicon Motion controller and will launch in Q2.
The Striker, an enterprise focused SSD, is expect to launch late Q1. It will feature 565MB/s 88,000 IPS read and 550MB/s 92,000 IOPS write.
Pro camera users will be happy to see their new ICON compact flash cards, featuring 1066x speed with data transfers of 160MB/s and 256 and 512GB models being available in late Q1. Most interesting is that they’re expect to undercut the market prices of popular cards by a big margin, so keep an eye out for these.
Their latest prototype, two SM2246 controllers in RAID. The system will still handle this as a single drive, and performance will take a little bit of a hit, but when it comes to capacity for NAS setups, but expect a fantastic price per gigabyte option somewhere in Q2.
