The drives are capable of random read performance of up to 50 000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) and, random write performance of up to 80 000 IOPS, which is higher than typical mainstream mSATA SSDs.

The company has begun shipping the 120GB and 180GB options, with additional capacities and volume shipments to follow this quarter.

"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. With these new performance thresholds available in a small form factor package, and backed by Intel quality and reliability, the Intel SSD 525 opens the door to an unlimited number of creative embedded solutions such as in-flight entertainment, mobile workstations, microservers and IP phone storage," said James Slattery, product line manager for Intel non-volatile memory solutions group client SSDs.
