Intel mSATA SSD 525 Series Solid-State Drives

- Replaced by the Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSDs

Small. Fast. Efficient. Intel's latest 6Gb/s mSATA SSD drives offer tremendous performance, world-famous reliability and an attractive price - all in a tiny package suitable for installation directly in your NUC or mSATA-compatible motherboard.

Intel evolving storage technology

Intel's Solid-State Drives continue to evolve with the Intel SSD 500 Family. Available in a wide range of capacities, the Solid-State Drive 525 Series offers great performance and low power consumption in a package one-eighth the size of a 2.5-inch hard drive.

New level of performance for small form factor products

The Intel SSD 525 Series accelerates PC performance where it matters most. With random read performance up to 50,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) and sequential read performance of up to 550 megabytes per second (MB/s), coupled with random writes up to 80,000 IOPS and sequential writes of 520 MB/s, your PC will blaze through the most demanding applications and will handle intense multi-tasking needs.

Superior data protection features

The SSD 525 Series comes with Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 128-bit encryption capabilities. In the event of theft or loss of your computer, your data is protected by an advanced encryption technology.

Proven reliability with lower operating costs

With no moving parts, the Intel SSD 525 Series reduces your risk of data loss due to shock, vibration, or jarring, all while consuming less power than a traditional hard drive, reducing recurring costs and increasing portability. Use the Intel SSD 525 Series knowing that your data is benefiting from advanced security features and world-class performance.

World-class reliability better by design

Using industry leading, compute-quality Intel 25nm NAND Flash Memory manufacturing processes, the Intel SSD 525 Series continues to offer even better performance with increased features that drastically outperforms traditional hard disk drive drives by an even greater margin.
