Mushkin, an industry?leading designer and manufacturer of high?performance and mission?critical computer products, announced today the launch of their new Scorpion Deluxe solid-state drives with PCI Express interface and unprecedented performance.  

"We are excited to launch our latest Scorpion Deluxe line of SSDs. Our customers can now manage data faster, safer and more efficiently. Whether for digital content creation, virtualization, database acceleration, motion picture visual effects or your own application, the Mushkin Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSD is always ready," said Nicolas Villalobos, director of global marketing at Mushkin.

The Mushkin Scorpion PCI Express SSDs are based on four SandForce SF-2281 SSD processors with un-throttled IOPS and were conceived to offer multimedia designers maximum performance and a scalable 4-way format. With up to 2150MB/s read speed, up to 1900MB/s write speed, and 100 000 4K random write IOPS, the Scorpion PCI Express is a natural for workstations with extreme performance. Available worldwide starting mid-June, Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSDs will come in 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB capacities and will use PCI Express 2.0 x8 interface.

"An insane amount of image data is required to produce motion picture visual effects. SSD storage devices like Muskin's Scorpion Deluxe PCIe provides artists with blazing-fast read and write speeds that reduce image editing and compositing tasks by several factors over and above spinning disc RAIDs. I count on Muskin hardware and will continue to do so in production," said Kelly Lee Myers, CG supervisor on Iron Sky.

Two questions: 1. Price? 2. Availability? and some extra questions: what type of graphic card do they use?

only thing not listed in the article is price. worldwide availability mid June. doesn't use graphics card but does use PCIe 2.0 x8 slot.

PCIe SSDs should become the norm for most desktops and prices should drop before long. Hopefully these PCIe SSDs will be more reliable than Mushkin's standard SSDs which have had issues.

ganging together a bunch of SATA controllers is so decidedly not Next-Gen.
