The Intel Solid-State Drive 520 Series offers the next generation of consumer computing. Utilizing its new small form factor, higher performance, and low Idle power, it’s the next evolution of the Intel Solid-State Drive.
Intel Solid-State Drives (Intel SSDs) continue to evolve with the introduction of the Intel SSD 520 Series – aimed at a wide array of consumer platforms including Ultrabook, traditional desktops and laptops, as well as the latest tablets and small form factor mobile systems. Intel Solid-State Drive 520 Series offers high quality, reliable performance and low power consumption for space conscious computing using M. 2, mSATA and 2.5” (7mm) form factors.
The Intel SSD 520 Series product paves the way for thin and light computing devices by introducing the latest M2 form factor. Intel’s SSD M2 form factor shrinks the total storage area significantly versus traditional 2.5” form factor storage devices. Along with the M2 form factor, Intel SSD 520 Series is also available in mSATA and traditional 2.5” form factors enabling the technology in a variety of solutions. The Intel SSD 520 series product line comes in a wide range of capacities from 80GB to 480GB.
The Intel SSD 520 Series accelerates platform performance with sequential read and write performance up to 540 and 490 megabytes per second (MB/s) Random read and write input/output operations per second (IOPs) reach up to 41K and 80K respectively. With the Intel SSD 520 Series, your computer will blaze through the most demanding consumer client applications and easily handle intense multi-tasking. In addition to strong performance gains, Intel SSD 520 Series provides extended battery life through new lower power modes. Idle power consumption of Intel SSD 520 Series is reduced by >90% in comparison to a typical hard disc drive reducing power from watts to milliwatts. When the Intel SSD 520 Series is coupled with a 4th generation Intel Core based platform, advanced power mode settings reduce power dissipation, another order of magnitude – from milliwatts to microwatts.
With the Intel SSD 520 Series using the latest 20nm Intel NAND technology, you also benefit from the high quality and reliability you’ve come to expect from Intel. In addition to the power, space savings, reliability, and peace of mind, the Intel SSD 520 Series is supported with Intel’s outstanding warranty and customer support.
