OCZ introduced a new Deneva 2 mSATA SSD line for Intel's ultrabook platform:
OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, today announced that the OCZ Deneva 2 30GB and 60GB mSATA SSDs, part numbers D2CSTEMS1A10-0030 and D2CSTEMS1A10-0060 have been tested with Intel® Smart Response Technology and have passed the performance benchmarks for the ‘While Using’ portion of the responsiveness requirements in the 2012 Ultrabook™ Definition.
“We are pleased with the results that Intel has achieved with our Deneva 2 mSATA products,” said Tobias Brinkmann, VP Partner Relations at OCZ Technology Group. “The Deneva 2 SSDs have a very small footprint making them ideal for the slim and stylish Ultrabook™ designs, and also deliver exceptionally fast bootup and data transfer speeds for a superior instant-on and overall more responsive computing experience.”
Intel Ultrabooks™ combine best-in-class performance, responsiveness, and security in thin and light elegant form factors, and make use of only certified SSDs to provide a faster, more energy-efficient option than mechanical hard disk drives (HDDs). OCZ Deneva 2 mSATA solutions are significantly slimmer than traditional 2.5-inch storage devices, enabling the Ultrabook™ to support low-profile dimensions less than 21mm thick without compromising on storage capacity, speed, or battery life. Additionally, Deneva 2 mSATA SSDs offer industry-leading performance and endurance for this mobile powerhouse.
The Ultrabook™ Series and Intel’s ultra-low voltage second generation Intel Core™ processors provide a platform for SSDs to shine and enable maximum productivity and multimedia enjoyment. Deneva's ability to provide a custom-tailored solution ensures superior cost efficiency, functionality, and compatibility that other SSD lines cannot deliver.
