Also featured are end-to-end data path protection, LDPC ECC and global wear-leveling to provide extended drive life. The Pilot M.2 2280 PCIe SSD is backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

PILOT-E M.2 2280 PCIe SSD

The Pilot-E is similar to the Pilot, but with increased performance.  It offers sequential read speeds of up to 3.5GB/s, and sequential write speeds of up to 3.0GB/s.  It also feature end-to-end data path protection, LDPC ECC and global wear-leveling to provide extended drive life.  The Pilot-E is also backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

TRIACTOR 3DX 2.5” SSD

Initially offered in a 128GB capacity, the Triactor 3DX pairs 3D TLC NAND with a Silicon Motion SM2258XT controller to deliver sequential read speeds of up to 565MB/s, and sequential write speeds of up to 310MB/s  Random 4K read performance is stated as up to 66,000 IOPS, with random 4K write speeds of up to 75,000 IOPS.  The Triactor 3DX utilizes an SLC cache to boost performance, and features DevSleep mode for extended battery life in mobile computing devices. The Triactor 3DX is backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

NEXT GENERATION SILVERLINE DDR4 MEMORY HEATSINK

Mushkin is upgrading the Silverline series of DDR4 memory modules to include a new aircraft-grade aluminum heat sink for fast heat dissipation.  It presents a refined industrial, yet elegant appearance, and its diamond-cut finish provides gamers, DIYers and system builders with a great look for their systems.  The new Silverline heatsink is to begin shipping on new Silverline DDR4 memory modules in Q2 of 2018.

CARBON EXT EXTERNAL SSD

Mushkin’s first external SSD utilizes a Silicon Motion SM2258XT controller and USB 3.1 interface to achieve data transfer speeds of up to 450MB/s and 45,000 IOPS.  It also utilizes an ASMedia ASM1153E USB controller, and includes both USB type ‘A’ and USB type ‘C’ cables.  The black and sand-blasted gunmetal finish combines performance with style.  Mushkin backs the Carbon EXT  external SSD with a 3-year limited warranty.
