The next entry to the Ventura Ultra series USB flash drive lineup is the the Ventura Ultra 480GB USB 3.0 SSD. The latest Ventura Ultra offering uses the LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller to provide throughput of 455MB/s reads and 445MB/s writes while providing up to 39K 4K random IOPS. The Ventura Ultra also is capable of operating in UASP mode, which enables SSD performance in the USB flash drive form factor. It comes in a light-weight aluminum housing, providing durability and thermal management.
Mushkin has also unveiled the new FrostByte heatsink for Blackline and Redline memory modules.
Cut from aircraft-grade aluminum, the new FrostByte heatsink utilizes a new vortex thermal design to dissipate and control accumulated heat. Designed for for computer enthusiasts and gamers, the heatsink's diamond cut design will definitely turn heads.
The FrostByte heatsink will begin rolling out in February 2014 on Redline and Blackline performance memory module offerings.
