While visiting Avant early this morning at Flash Memory Summit, our friend Brian Flood showed off Mushkin’s new Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSD. Not only is the Scorpion Deluxe capable of 2.1GB/s read and 1.9GB/s write performance with over 100,000 IOPS but also, this form factor can be configured in as high as a 2TB form factor. Here is a shot of the PCB with internals:
If you look close, you will notice 4 blade style ‘LSI SandForce Driven’ SSDs equipped with Toshiba toggle mode NAND flash memory, along with SF-2281 SATA 3 controllers. The end product is connected via a PCIe 2×8 interface and pricing hasn’t been confirmed as of yet for the Scorpion Deluxe.
