Mushkin announces Alpha Series 4TB and 8TB M.2 NVMe SSD set to ship in January 2021. Priced at $650 and $1,300 respectively, the new Alpha Series NVMe’s should be a good option for anyone looking for a new (massive) media drive to edit 4K, 6K and 8K footage. New RED Komodo owners and those looking to get that 12K URSA Mini camera should definitely look into these new drives.
And while they are certainly not cheap, the new Mushkin 4TB and 8TB M.2 SSD units offer some pretty advanced technology and decent speeds of around 3,200 MB/s read and 3,000 MBs write. Not to mention the engineering feat of packing 8TB into an M.2 (2280) form factor!
