Mushkin Atlas Deluxe mSATA 30GB SSD Review

Once again we have a look at an mSATA drive, this time from Mushkin. The Atlas Deluxe 30GB drive may be small in capacity and stature, but with the SandForce SF-2281 controller on board, it stands tall. To see how much so, we put it up against the formidable Intel 525 Series of mSATA drives. Take a peek at the article to see how well it fared!

While our performance comparison was limited to only one other drive of the same capacity, that comparison drive is probably is on top of the mSATA 30GB heap being an Intel 525 Series drive. That makes is a very nice yardstick to measure up the bantam Atlas Deluxe drive. In that regard, the Atlas measures up very well with performance numbers that are very robust for a drive of this size. The maximum performance attained is 555MB/s sequential reads and 379MB/s sequential writes. This is with compressible data and, like all SandForce drives, things change a bit when incompressible data is thrown at it. Max performance drops to 200MB/s reads and 40 MB/s writes which is on par with Intel 30GB drive as it features the same controller.

Man that thing is tiny! I didn't know until recently that Mushkin was an American company. Now that I know that I'm more interested in their products.

I have come to the conclusion that "FaceBook" should be renamed "FacePalm" :roll:
