New drive features same capacity, smaller footprint than previous model

Computer product designer and manufacturer Mushkin today announced the worldwide availability of its new line of 1.8-inch Chronos GO SATA 3 (6Gbps) solid-state drives (SSD), now shipping in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities.

The new line of 1.8-inch Chronos SSDs feature a smaller footprint than the previous generation, and offer performance and reliability improvements for users over other models. Originally designed as an enterprise-class drive, the new drive has been re-engineered to deliver maximum capacity to the consumer market. The drive peaks at 560MBps with sequential write operations and 525MBps sequential read speeds.

Mushkin reports the drives as shipping now, but no pricing was immediately available.

    I was also thinking about my classic iPod, but I'm pretty sure the iPods use IDE drives instead of these newer SATA ones.
