Mushkin Enhanced Gamma 1TB M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 x4 NVMe 1.3 SSD Review

Today I will be reviewing the Mushkin Gamma 1TB M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD. Much like everything else we rate SSD’s by speed. The faster the better of course. Unlike a lot of other devices we cant overclock these types of devices, not yet anyways. You just need to make sure you have a PCIe Gen4 slot to get the full potential of this drive. With a rated speed of 7150MB/s this drive is among just a handful of other drives that are going to be rated at these speeds. Right off the bat this drive has the capabilities to be one of the fastest drives you can get your hands on.  This drive is equipped with the new Phison E18 controller and the controller is supposed to be capable of some amazing transfer speeds. We will surely find out exactly what we can get out of this drive when we throw some benchmarks at it. Having a drive capable of transferring your files at a moments notice is becoming more and more of a necessity rather than a luxury. The faster you move these files is time saved and we all know time is money. Having a faster drive is going to speed that very thing you spend so much time on. With a faster drive you will be able to load files faster, move files faster, and accomplish more in a days time than you ever did before. Just think about it, if you are upgrading from a Gen3 you are essentially cutting this wait time in half. So keep scrolling and lets see all of the details of this drive and on the next few pages we will cover all the results from testing.

Conceived from a passion for performance and engineered to help break records, the Mushkin ALPHA, DELTA and GAMMA series ushers in the next generation of PC storage. Featuring the latest gamut of Phison Controllers. Delivering incredible performance and efficiency, Making them the ideal SSD offerings for gamers, content creators, and computing enthusiasts, which demand the absolute best experience.

Company Philosophy

As we grow as a company, it has become more and more important to explicitly define the core values from which we develop our culture, our brand, and our business strategies. These are the eight core values that we live by:

  • Deliver WOW Through Quality Products and Service
  • Embrace and Drive Change
  • Drive Innovation through Fun, Exciting new channels
  • Build Open and Honest Relationships with Communication
  • Build a Positive Team and Family Spirit
  • Do More With Less

All of us Mushkin live the “work hard, play hard” mentality! We believe in operational excellence and realize that there is always room for improvement in everything we do. This means that our work is never done. In order to stay ahead of the competition (or would-be competition), we need to continuously innovate as well as make incremental improvements to our operations, always striving to make ourselves more efficient, always trying to figure out how to do something better. On the right you will see our Product Launch cycle, showing how we don’t only launch a product, but develop and consistently improve them. It’s called the Mushkin difference.

Now let us see what this Mushkin Gamma 1TB M.2 2280 PCIe Gen4 x4 SSD is all about! You can buy the Mushkin Gamma 1TB M.2 SSD for around USD $199.99 from Amazon –
