OCZ Deneva 2 mSATA SSDs detailed and ready for Ultrabooks

Two new ultrathin SATA II SSDs announced and certified for optimum Intel Smart Response Technology performance

Ultrathin notebooks, such as the Apple MacBook Air, can be so thin that even a standard 2.5-inch SSD would not be able to fit properly inside of the case. Now with the advent of Ultrabooks attempting to go mainstream, the mSATA market may be about to boom.

California-based manufacturer OCZ will be extending its mSATA lineup with the Deneva2 30GB and 60GB SSDs, both of which have been tested and certified for Intel Ultrabook use.

We are pleased with the results that Intel has achieved with our Deneva 2 mSATA products," said OCZ in its press release. “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.

According to Tom's Hardware, these SATA II SSDs will be using SandForce controllers with a throughput of over 280MB/s and support for TRIM. The drives may be used in combination with HDDs due to the low capacity of the Deneva 2 SSDs. We expect these OCZ drives to make an appearance in a number of 2012 Ultrabooks.
