OCZ Nocti mSATA SSDs are the ideal upgrade for the latest notebooks and desktop systems with limited storage space. Unlike a standard drive, OCZ Nocti mSATA SSDs are smaller with no outer casing, making them a cost-effective solid state storage solution. Perfect for creating a dual-boot laptop or desktop system where all your storage slots are filled, OCZ mSATA SSDs allow for increased capacities, high speeds, and low power consumption in a small form factor. Based on the high-performance SandForce processors, Nocti mSATA Series is the ideal upgrade for enthusiast and professional mobile workstations and tablets.
LIGHTWEIGHT FOR ON-THE-GO COMPUTING The mSATA OCZ Nocti Series enables a flexible, scalable and accelerated storage solution in a form factor that is up to eight times smaller than a 2.5 hard-disk drive, and weighs 10 times less. Supporting SATA signals over a PCI Express (PCIe) mini-connector, the OCZ Nocti Series provides compact storage acceleration for single-drive systems like netbooks, tablets and other hand-held devices.
HIGH PERFORMANCE and DURABLE DUAL-DRIVE OPTION Driven by the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2141/2181), the Nocti Series delivers up to 280MB/s read and 12,500 IOPS of 4KB random write performance (30GB model), significantly improving your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience. The small footprint also augments hard-disk drive performance in dual-drive systems, such as all-in-ones, notebooks and small-form-factor (SFF) desktops. The mSATA form factor connects easily to an existing mSATA port on a PC enabling the SSD to perform as a boot drive, quick access to frequently-used applications or storage. In addition, the SSD controller’s integrated enhanced DuraClass Technology is architected to leverage today’s densest MLC NAND Flash memory, delivering best-in-class performance, endurance, security, and power efficiency in a “DRAM-less”, single chip solution.
A SUPERIOR PC EXPERIENCE In addition to maximum performance, a Nocti upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Nocti SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.
TRIM SUPPORT The Nocti Series SSDs offer native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
