Intel has launched the Intel Solid-State Drive 525 Series in a small mSATA form factor with 6-gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) performance.

The Intel SSD 525 is the latest entry to the Intel 500 Series SSD Family, and measures 3.7mm x 50.8mm x 29.85mm and weighs 10 grams.

The Intel SSD 525 Series features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 128-bit encryption capabilities for added data protection should a device be stolen or lost. It uses Intel 25-nanometer (nm) multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory and is backed by a 5-year limited warranty.

“The Intel SSD 525 Series is Intel’s latest 6 Gb/s mSATA product, which brings high performance to an ultra-portable form factor targeted for Ultrabooks and a myriad of embedded solutions,” said James Slattery, product line manager for Intel Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group Client SSDs.

The Intel SSD 525 Series will be available in 30 gigabyte (GB), 60GB, 90GB, 120GB, 180GB and 240GB capacities. The company has begun shipping the 120GB and 180GB options, with additional capacities and volume shipments to follow this quarter.
