Mach Xtreme Technology Unveils 1.8'' micro-SATA MX-MDS Series Solid State Drives

Mach Xtreme Technology Inc., a worldwide leader in top performance, high reliability and user friendly designed PC components, today unveiled the 1.8”micro-SATA MX-MDS Series SSD. Based on the best-in-class SandForce SF1222 controller, the 1.8” MX-MDS Series delivers an enhanced mobile computing experience with much faster application loading, ultra-fast data access, shorter boot-ups, and longer battery life of all laptops with micro-SATA interface.

This series maintains the highest level of read and write performance though the life of the SSD. Highly intelligent block management and wear leveling optimizes longevity of MX-MDS series drives. The MDS series supports DuraClass, DuraWrite and unique RAISE technologies. DuraClass technology provides best-in-class endurance, performance, and low power. DuraWrite technology extends the endurance of MLC memory providing at least 5 year lifecycles with 3-5K cycle MLC flash. RAISE provides the protection and reliability of RAID on a single drive without the significant write overhead.

The MX-MDS drive delivers best-in-class read and write speeds clocking in at up to 285 MB/s read and 275 MB/s write along with the stunning maximum of 30,000 IOPS and low power consumption (stand-by 0.5W / active up to 2.0W) and superior durability (1.5 million MTBF) compared to rotating hard disk drives.

Available in capacities of 40GB, 60GB and 90GB, Mach Xtreme Technology MX-MDS SSDs comes backed with 2 Year Warranty and outstanding after-sales service.

at least they could finally advertise that its superior to PC hardware, because few PC's would have 1.8" SSD's.

Why does it say 120gb on the box, but stated sizes of 40,60, and 90gb?

You might be too young to remember this, but at times Macs have had superior hardware compared to what was available for PCs. Thunderbolt (Light Peak) being one current example. Years ago it was Mice, SCSI, Firewire, USB, CD-ROMs, DVD Recorders, 3.5" floppies, Built In LAN Networking, built in sound, Independent video cards (and multiple monitors), iPods, etc. I could go on a while about all of the "superior" hardware technology that has appeared in Macs first and was later adopted by the generic PC world.

thunderbolt is quite broken actually, with serious problems for display use right now.

as for the rest... all those existed in PC's at the same time, or was possible to add in yourself. my comment here was a joke because PC users wouldnt want it, they'd get 2.5/3.5" drives.


the fact that you listed ipods as PC/mac hardware just makes me really, really sad. :(
