Austin, TX -- Jun 07, 2013 / -- Mushkin, Inc., an industry‐leading designer and manufacturer of high‐performance and mission‐critical computer products, announced today the launch of their new Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSD alongside Mushkin's "Pacific Rim Sweepstakes" which will run from June 5, 2013 until August 17, 2013.

"Mushkin's Pacific Rim sweepstakes definitely appeals to our audience on a variety of levels and provides our consumers with the chance to win some amazing prizes," said Nicolas Villalobos, Director of Global Marketing at Mushkin, Inc. "Alongside this campaign we are excited to launch our latest Scorpion Deluxe line of SSDs. Our customers can now manage data faster, safer and more efficiently.

The Mushkin Scorpion PCI Express SSD was conceived to offer multimedia designers maximum performance and a scalable 4-way format. With up to 21000MB/s throughput and 100,000 4K random write IOPS, the Scorpion PCI Express is a natural for the digital effects arena. Available worldwide starting mid-June, Scorpion Deluxe PCIe SSDs will come in 240GB, 480GB, 960GB and 1920GB capacities.

Looks fast! Looking at the picture, looks like some of it is socketed and could be upgraded in the future, I know that's wishful thinking though :P
