Cebit 2010: Sandforce based

In addition
to its new memory kits, Mushkin is also working on a Sandforce based SSD as well. The Calypso SSD series will feature a slower, and thus cheaper, Sandforce SF-1200 controller.

The Calypso SSD series will be available in 64, 128 and 256GB capacities and will feature maximum speeds somewhere around 260MB/s. The SF-1200 controller has maximum IOPS of around 10,000 with 4k blocks. According to Mushkin, the new Calypso series should be cheaper than SSDs based on Indilinx controller, and a lot of manufacturers are eager to jump on this Sandforce bandwagon.

The new Calypso SSD series should start to appear in the market later this month or sometime early next month. As for the faster SF-1500 controller, Mushkin is still waiting to see the situation on the SSD market, but it will come sooner or later.
