Mushkin first showed off its original Ventura Ultra line of USB 3.0 SSDs at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last year, and now, it has announced a new member of that family.
Now, the company has unveiled the Ventura Ultra 480GB USB 3.0 SSD at CES 2014. The latest member of the Venture Ultra family carries many of the same features as the others, but with 480GB of storage.

"When the Ventura Ultra first released, it was very well-received and continues to outperform the competition in the high-end portable storage space," said Brian Flood, the Director of Product Development at Mushkin Inc. "Everyone wants greater performance and capacity for large projects and media. With the success of the original Ventura Ultra, we realized that we needed to innovate to offer even greater capacities while retaining high read and write speeds for data transfer."
The new SSD uses the LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller and offers 455MB/s read speed and 445MB/s write speed as well as up to 39K 4K random IOPS. It can also operate in UASP mode for added performance in flash drive form.
Up until now, the Ventura Ultra family came in 60GB, 120GB, and 240GB flavors.

You should ask them where you can buy the 60 and 120 GB models. Newegg and Amazon only carry the 240 GB drive. Is demand too low?
How quickly do they plan on switching to 3rd generation SandForce controllers when they're released?

3rd-gen SF controllers on these USB sticks won't start showing up until USB 3.1 is more commonplace.
