Mushkin is getting on the portable SSD bandwagon with their new Carbon X100. This drive is essentially a desktop-class drive inside of an enclosure with a USB 3.1 gen 2 interface to allow you to connect it to your laptop or PC. The enclosure of the drive is metal so it will act as a heatsink to keep your drive nice and cool. At the end of the enclosure there is a single type-C port, which will also power the drive.
The drive makes use of the Silicon Motion’s SM2263XT controller with 3D TLC NAND. Mushkin is stating read and write speeds of 1000 MB/s, which is they say is 500% faster than a normal USB 3.0 flash drive. The drive will be available in capacities ranging from 250GB – 1TB. No word on pricing, but the drive should be available in Q1 of this year.
