OCZ's Deneva 2 mSATA SSD has met the requirements for use in Intel's 2012 Ultrabook
OCZ Deneva 2 30GB and 60GB mSATA SSDs (models 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.
In October, we reported on the Deneva 2 SATA 3 mSATA series. However, the version approved for the Intel Ultrabooks is the Deneva 2 SATA 2 mSATA series. The mSATA utilizes MLC NAND Flash memory, SandForce 2141/2181 controller, a SATA 3.0 Gb/s interface and offers throughput rates with up to 32,000 random 4k write IOPS and over 280MB/s of potential throughput. The mSATA has a MTBF (mean time before failure) of 2 million hours, supports TRIM and has a 3-year warranty with dedicated FAE/FSE support (includes PM/engineer support through validation cycle).
The Deneva 2 mSATA offers a slim design less than 21mm thick to support low-profile dimensions of Ultrabooks.
