So far, the only mSATA SSDs Intel have offered are the now-outdated 300 series with its 3 Gbps SATA interface. That changes today with the introduction of the Intel 525 Series SSD. As you can guess, it’s pretty much a smaller version of the Intel 520 Series, in the mSATA format used for things like ultra thin notebooks and motherboards that have an expansion slot built in.
They use the same SandForce controller as the 520 series, and the same 25nm flash. They also have the same 5 year warranty, although prices will be a bit higher than corresponding 520 drives.
There’s not much else to talk about yet, but we will be reviewing these drives soon, in every single size they will be available in – 30, 60, 90, 120, 180, and 240 GB. Stay tuned for more info!
