The Chronos is a lesser version of Mushkin’s Chronos Deluxe in terms of speed although the difference is only subtle. Its sequential read speed can reach 550 MB/s while the maximum sequential write speed is 510 MB/s. Just like the Chronos Deluxe, this SATA III SSD is powered by SandForce’s SF-2281 controller. The Chronos series of SSDs consists of 60 GB, 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB capacities.

Inside the Chronos are flash modules of asynchronous NAND type. Mushkin introduces this solid state drive as a balance between performance and cost which is rightfully so since it is cheaper than SSDs of similar speeds like the Hyper X and the WildFire. IOPS for the 480 GB version of the Chronos SSD is at 37,000. The drive has a limited warranty of three years and a Mean Time Between Failure of 2 million hours.
