Posted at 05 December 2012 22:39 CEST by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Mushkin, Inc., an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance and mission-critical computer products, today announces that the company will begin shipping the world’s largest capacity mSATA Solid-State Drive in January 2013. As the latest addition to Mushkin’s Atlas family of mSATA drives, the new solid-state drive delivers up a colossal 480 gigabytes (GB) of storage capacity on a single mSATA module.

“We’re excited to present our latest Atlas 480GB mSATA solid state drive, demonstrating once again Mushkin’s consistent ability to combine top performance, functionality, capacity, and low-power innovation,” said Brian Flood, Director of Product Development at Mushkin Inc. “Keeping z-height as low as possible and managing to fit eight NAND flash chips and a controller on a mSATA PCB was no easy feat, but now capacity-hungry Ultrabook and notebook users can go beyond the 256GB mSATA barrier.”
