Mushkin Scorpion 480GB PCIe x2 SSD Review

Admin Topics 78

Compared to regular SATA SSD models PCI-E models use the extra firepower offered by your PCI Express slot which thanks to multi-lane scalability can reach speeds many times over those achieved by the well-established SATA III standard. Going back to the product at hand the Scorpion 480GB model which we have here with us today is basically two M.2 240GB SATA III SSDs (support both TRIM & NCQ) mounted onto a PCI-E 2.0 x2 card and configured in RAID0 mode with the help of the 88SE9230 Marvell RAID controller (this controller also supports RAID 0/1/10).
