MSI Officially Enters the SSD Business with Reflex Series Solid State Drives
MSI, A leading manufacturer of Motherboards and Graphic Cards seems to be entering the client SSD market with its new Reflex Series, its first SSD's equipped with the LSI-SandForce SF2281 controller and 25 nm synchronous NAND flash.
We had earlier reported about the possible existence of these SSD's last week though now it has been confirmed, its just the launch date and prices which are yet to be reported. The Reflex Series SSD's would come in three variants:
- RX-60 (60 GB)
- RX-120 (120 GB)
- RX-240 (240 GB)
The RX-60 offers up to 525 MB/s reads with 495 MB/s writes, and 85,000 IOPS 4K random write performance. The RX-120 ups that to 550 MB/s reads with 515 MB/s writes, and 90,000 IOPS 4K random writes. The RX-240 leads with 560 MB/s reads, 525 MB/s writes, and 90,000 IOPS 4K random writes.
All three SSD's maintain a 2.5-inch form-factor design compatible with SATA III 6GBps interface.
