Samsung has introduced its new line-up of 3-bit V-NAND based EVO SSDs, including the 850 EVO M.2 and 850 EVO mSATA. Both SSDs feature Samsung’s new 3D V-NAND technology for faster endurance speeds and maximum performance, and are one-tenth of the weight of a traditional SSD.
3D V-NAND stacks 32 cell layers vertically over one another, resulting in higher density and better performance. Both SSDs have been designed for ultrathin PCs and desktops, but with a smaller footprint.
The mSATA is available in 1TB, 500GB, 250GB and 120GB capacities, with read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and write speeds of up to 520 MB/s. The M.2 comes in 500GB, 250GB and 120GB variants, and offers users read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and write speeds of up to 500MB/s.
Unsoo Kim, senior VP of branded product marketing team at Samsung, said: “By offering the 850 EVO in multiple form factors, Samsung is giving every PC user the opportunity to upgrade their device with the speed, reliability and endurance of V-NAND.”
