Mushkin has global launch their Helix-L PCIe m.2 SSD which were first shown tot he world at CES 2019. They drives are  available capacities of 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB.

Built using the latest Silicon Motion SM2263XT PCIe Gen 3 x 4 NVMe controller to generate super-fast sequential Read and Write speeds. The Helix-L offers extreme storage performance and capacities in a M.2 2280 form factor, fitting directly into a motherboard or notebook. Employing the ultra-high-speed PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 interface for maximum bandwidth, the Helix-L leaves traditional SATA III and even previous generation M.2 SSDs in the rearview. Loading everything from large video and image files to games, applications or the operating system faster than ever before.

“c fully embraces the adoption of PCIe NVMe SSD technology in gaming, professional, and embedded vertical market environments”, said Brian Flood, Director of Product Development at Mushkin Enhanced MFG. “We believe that with features like HMB, capacities up to 1TB and the aggressive price point of the Helix-L our customers in these market segments will find our Helix-L to be a very attractive offering.”
