Following in the footsteps of OCZ, Corsair, Crucial and probably one or two others, Mushkin is introducing its Catalyst Caching line of SSDs which are available in 50GB and 100GB capacities and are both SATA 3 speeds.
The Catalyst family uses the very successful NVELO Dataplex Caching software that we have reviewed several times prior and the best thing about NVELO is that, typically, your hard drive wil take on the speed of the SATA 3 caching SSD once cached. That means LSI SandForce speeds of 550MB/s read and 515MB/s write as the caching SSD utilizes the world famous LSI SandForce SF-2281 Flash Storage Processor (FSP)
The Catalyst Cache SSD really is the best of both worlds. Users will experience amazing speed while maintaining large amounts of data on their computer. The best part, its an upgrade that wont break the bank. – Brian Flood, Mushkin director of product development.
Supply isn’t completely in place as of yet but wee did find the Catalyst at NewEgg for $109.99 for the 100GB capacity. We will update this link as available increases.
