Intel has just announced the Intel SSD 525 Series in a small mSATA form factor with 600 MB/s performance. The Intel SSD 525 Series gives OEM customers, channel, and tech enthusiasts an ultra-portable, low-power storage solution in one-eighth the space of a traditional 2.5” hard disk drive (HDD) to run innovative Ultrabook, tablet and embedded applications.
The Intel SSD 525 is suitable for All-in-One desktops, notebooks, ultrabooks and workstation upgrades, as well as automotive, digital signage, embedded video and retail solutions.
The Intel SSD 525 Series will be available in 30 GB, 60 GB, 90 GB, 120 GB, 180 GB and 240 GB capacities. The company has begun shipping the 120 GB and 180 GB options, with additional capacities and volume shipments to follow this quarter.
The Intel SSD 525 Series features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 128-bit encryption capabilities for added data protection in the event that a device is stolen or lost. It uses an Intel 25 nanometer (nm) multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory and is backed by a 5-year limited warranty.
To help ease the installation process, all Intel SSD users can download the free Intel Data Migration Software to help clone the entire content of a previous storage drive (SSD or HDD) to any Intel SSD.
