( — Mushkin, Inc., an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance and mission-critical computer products, today officially announced the worldwide launch of its new enterprise class ProSpec series solid-state drives (SSDs).

"We have time after time demonstrated to PC enthusiasts how Mushkin’s solid-state drive solutions can dramatically improve performance and reduce data transfer times, delivering levels of performance that have earned Mushkin its place as one of the top SSD manufacturers," said Brian Flood, Director, Product Management at Mushkin, Inc.

Designed for the enterprise environment, Mushkin’s ProSpec SSDs deliver random read/write performance of 80K/42K IOPS and a sustained transfer rate of 560MB/s, and are available in useable capacities ranging from 100GB to 400GB.
