Intel XM25-M Features
The Intel X18-M/X25-M SATA Solid State Drive (SSD) delivers leading performance in industry standard 1.8” and 2.5” form factors while simultaneously improving system responsiveness for mobile applications over standard rotating drive media or hard disk drives. By combining Intel’s leading NAND flash memory technology with our innovative high performance controller, Intel delivers an SSD for Native Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) hard disk drive drop-in replacement with enhanced performance, reliability, ruggedness and power savings. Since there are no rotating platters, moving heads, fragile actuaters, or unnecessary delays due to spin-up time or positional seek time that can slow down the storage subsystem significantly, the Intel X18-M/X25-M SATA SSD enables fast read/write access times and a significant I/O and throughput performance improvement as compared to rotating media or hard disk drives.
The Intel X18-M/X25-M SATA SSDs primarily target SATA based laptop PCs, highly rugged mobile client devices, as well as thin and light, mini/sub-notebooks. Key attributes include high performance, low power, increased system responsiveness, high reliability and enhanced ruggedness as compared to standard mobile SATA hard drives. Intel X18-M/X25-M SATA SSDs are available in 1.8” and 2.5” form factors that are electrically, mechanically, and software compatible with existing 1.8” and 2.5” Serial ATA slots and cables. Our flexible design allows interchangeability with existing mobile hard drives based on the SATA interface standard.
