Mushkin, Inc., an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance and mission-critical computer products, announces the continued sell-out of their latest Scorpion Deluxe PCIe Solid-State Drive. Mushkin, Inc. has announced that the revolutionary and highly-anticipated Scorpion Deluxe continues to be sold out at all available retailers for the 2nd month in a row. The overwhelming demand of the newly-released solid-state drives has led to an overwhelming correlative number of backorders. The manufacturer has noted that the company should be able to catch back up with consumer demand within the next 3 to 4 weeks.

"We're extremely excited to see how well-received the Scorpion Deluxe is. We felt very confident with the design and making of this product, and we're proud to share it with our consumer base. The Scorpion Deluxe is representative of how Mushkin continues to strive to meet and exceed the expectations of our diverse and unique users," said Brian Flood, Director of Product Development at Mushkin, Inc.



The Scorpion Deluxe PCIe Solid-State Drive has been a rising player in its field with its Quad Sandforce SF-2281 achieving 2150 MB/s and 1900 MB/s in read and write speeds. The SSD boasts just over 100,000 4K read and write un-throttled IOPS and a confident 3-year warranty. The Scorpion Deluxe has been available in various capacities, including 240GB, 480GB, 960GB, and even 1920GB -- all offering unparalleled speeds of optimized and reliable data transfer.

"The Scorpion Deluxe PCIe is a strong component that complements any system design, whether you are composing your own applications or generating visual effects, and so on. This is why one of our top priorities at the moment is to get more Scorpion Deluxe cards back into the marketplace." said Nicolas Villalobos, Director of Global Marketing at Mushkin, Inc.

PCIe SSDs seem so nice. Even just how clean the build would be. Could completely remove the hard drive cages and stick something useful there. </dreaming>

are those speeds nearing RAM bandwidth? i was just thinking that they keep this up in a few years, memory will be a bit obsolete won't it? i mean, just remove memory all together and have direct access from CPU to SSD?

It's about the bandwidth of DDR-266. It has quite a ways to go to come near today's standards. The limiting factor here will be PCIe bandwidth which, with today's PCIe 3.0 standard, should net up to 15,760 MB/s for a 16x slot.

Are the PCIe lanes connected directly to the CPU? If this can bypass the Northbridge then there is extra performance to be gained from the PCIe design over SATA.

Stuff tends to sell out too quickly if you only supply 10 units worldwide...

As is, current CPUs can interact with the PCI-E lanes. With older CPUs interaction runs through the chipset. Check your hardware docs.
