Mushkin's new Redline Vortex SSD promises to be one of the fastest PCIe 4.0 drives on the market

Mushkin's new Redline Vortex SSD promises read speeds as high as 7,415 MB/s

Mushkin's latest SSD promises to deliver some incredible performance levels, using Innogrit's new IG5236 series PCIe 4.0 SSD controller to deliver sequential read speeds of 7,415 MB/s and sequential write speeds of 6,800 MB/s. 

Unlike most other high-end PCIe 4.0 SSDs, Mushkin's new Redline Vortex series SSDs do not use Phison's PS5018-E18 SSD controller. This fact alone explain how the Redline Vortex can deliver more sequential performance than its rivals, most of which have sequential read speeds that cap out at read speeds of 7,000 MB/s or 7,100 MB/s.

Mushkin's new Redline Vortex SSDs approach the maximum speeds that the PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 interface can offer, giving NVMe SSDs little room for improvement before SSDs start adopting the PCIe 5.0 interface.

Mushkin plans to launch their Redline Vortex series SSDs with 512GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities. Their 1TB model will cost $124.99 (USD), and $77.89 (USD) for their 512GB model. 

Below is Mushkin's Press release for their new Redline Vortex series SSDs.
