Intel® Solid-State Drive 525 Series

Intel® Solid-State Drive 525 Series

Offering performance and low-power consumption in a package one-eighth the size of a 2.5-inch hard drive, the Intel® Solid-State Drive 525 Series accelerates PC performance with random reads of up to 50,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS)1 and sequential reads of up to 550 megabytes per second (MB/s)2. Couple that with random write performance of up to 80,000 IOPS3 and sequential writes of 520 MB/s to unleash demanding multitasking applications in notebooks, embedded applications, and workstation upgrades. With performance also comes superior data protection, and the Intel® SSD 525 Series features Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 128-bit capabilities, securing data in the event a PC is lost or stolen. And because SSDs have no moving parts, they reduce risk of data loss while consuming less power for proven reliability.
