OCZ Technology Group on Wednesday said that its Deneva solid-state drives in mSATA form-factor have been certified by Intel Corp. to power ultrabooks, thin-and-lightweight notebooks with maximum responsiveness and performance amid reduced power consumption. OCZ's Deneva 2 are among the first non-Intel SSDs to get such certification.

OCZ Deneva 2 30GB and 60GB mSATA SSDs have been tested with Intel Smart Response technology and have passed the performance benchmarks for the ‘While Using’ portion of the responsiveness requirements in the 2012 ultrabook definition. OCZ Deneva 2 mSATA solutions are significantly slimmer than traditional 2.5" storage devices, enabling the ultrabook to support low-profile dimensions less than 21mm thick without compromising on storage capacity, speed, or battery life. OCZ also ships 120GB version of Deneva 2.

OCZ Deneva 2 SSDs are based on SandForce 2141/2181 controller and utilize multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory produced using a 20nm-class process technology. The manufacturer declares [for 120GB model] maximum read speed of 280MB/s and maximum 11500 IOPS read operations as well as maximum write speed of up to 260MB/s along with 32000 IOPS write operations. The solid-state drives weigh 6 grams and consume up to 1.7W.

"We are pleased with the results that Intel has achieved with our Deneva 2 mSATA products. The Deneva 2 SSDs have a very small footprint making them ideal for the slim and stylish Ultrabook designs, and also deliver exceptionally fast bootup and data transfer speeds for a superior instant-on and overall more responsive computing experience," said Tobias Brinkmann, vice president of partner relations at OCZ Technology.
