"An insane amount of image data is required to produce motion picture visual effects," said VFX award-winning, Kelly Lee Myers, CG Supervisor on Iron Sky. "SSD storage devices like Muskin's Scorpion Deluxe PCIe provides artists with blazing-fast read and write speeds that reduce image editing and compositing tasks by several factors over and above spinning disc RAIDs. I count on Muskin hardware and will continue to do so in production."
This PCIe SSD was used to make the visual effects on the upcoming movie Pacific Rim. The Mushkin Scorpion PCIe SSD is pictured below to show you what the circuit board looks like as the Deluxe model (second image) has a cover on it.
