Santa Clara, Calif. — Intel today unveiled a small-form-factor solid-state drive.
The Intel SSD 525 series is intended for OEMs building Ultrabooks, all-in-one PCs and ultra-thin notebooks.
The drive is 3.7mm by 50.8mm by 29.85mm and weighs 0.35 ounces, or about one-eighth the size of a traditional 2.5-inch hard disk drive. Data-transfer rates are in the 6GBps performance.
The 525 will be available in 30GB, 60GB, 90GB, 120GB, 180GB and 240GB capacities. The 120GB and 180GB variants are already shipping, with the rest expected to follow this quarter.
