mach_xtreme_ds_fusion_60gb_ssd_1


Today, we have for review the Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS Fusion 60GB SATA3 SSD. We already know the Sandforce SF-2281 controller inside of this MX-DS Fusion 60GB from some previously tested SSDs. Of course for our review we updated the MX-DS Fusion SSD to the most current firmware, then we tested it with some benchmark tools in AHCI and Legacy IDE mode at the SATA3 controller.

Thanks for the support …

Many thanks to Caseking.de for the support with the Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS Fusion 60GB 2.5″ SSD.

The Mach Xtreme MX-DS Fusion 60GB SATA3 2.5″ SSD MXSSD3MDSF-60G has at present a price of approx. 100 Euro (03/2012).

The MX DS Fusion SSD 2.5-inch series contains at present the following types:
Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS Fusion 60GB MXSSD3MDST-60G
Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS Fusion 60GB MXSSD3MDSF-60G
Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS Fusion 240GB MXSSD3MDST-240G

The performance of this Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS Fusion SSD Series with SF2281 Controller does not alter depending on the capacities like the previously tested Crucial C300 or Crucial m4.
So the 60GB SSD has already the high read and write performance.

Here you can buy the Mach Xtreme Technology SSD for a low price.

One the back side one can see the full order number MXSSD3MDSF-60G and the SATA3 connectors for data and power on the left.
The SATA2 connectors are identical to conventional SATA2 and SATA3 hard disk drives and one can also operate the SATA3 SSD with lower speed on a SATA2 interface:

Here you can see the SandForce 2281 Controller IC and eight Intel 29F64G08AAME1 25nm Intel 25nm Multi Level Cell NAND components of the SATA3 SSD with each 8GB capacity to reach a total capacity of 64GB or 60GB without overprovisioning:
