Intel® Solid-State Drive 520 Series

1.0Overview

This document describes the specifications and capabilities of the Intel® Solid-State Drive 520 Series (Intel® SSD 520 Series)1.

The Intel SSD 520 Series delivers leading performance for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA)-based computers in capacities ranging up to 480 GB.

By combining Intel's leading 25nm NAND flash memory technology with SATA 6Gb/s interface support, the Intel SSD 520 Series delivers sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 520 MB/s.

The industry-standard 2.5-inch form factor enables interchangeability with existing hard disk drives (HDDs) and native SATA HDD drop-in replacement with the enhanced performance, reliability, and ruggedness offered by an SSD.

As compared to standard SATA HDDs, Intel SSD 520 Series offers these key features:

High I/O and throughput performance

Increased system responsiveness

High reliability

Enhanced ruggedness

The Intel SSD 520 Series also offers additional key features such as:

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit Encryption

AES 256-bit encryption is an industry standard in data security, providing a hardware-based mechanism for encryption and decryption of user data. Utilizing a 256-bit encryption key, AES encryption — when combined with an ATA drive password — helps protect user data.

End-to-End Data Protection

End-to-end data protection helps protect data from being corrupted across the data path by using cyclic redundancy check (CRC), parity, and error correction code (ECC) checks in the data path from the host interface to the NAND, and back.

Data Compression

Data compression helps improve performance and endurance by automatically compressing information sent to the SSD so that less data has to be processed and stored on the NAND. The amount of data that can be compressed depends on the type of data.

1. The Intel SSD 520 Series is currently not validated for data center usage.

Notes: 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes; 1 sector = 512 bytes.

LBA count shown represents total user storage capacity and will remain the same throughout the life of the drive.

The total usable capacity of the SSD may be less than the total physical capacity because a small portion of the capacity is used for NAND flash management and maintenance purposes.

2.2Performance

The data compression engine in the Intel SSD 520 Series controller optimizes performance based on the data pattern of the workload.

This section provides both compressible and incompressible Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) and sustained sequential read and write bandwidth specifications.
