The Samsung announcement of the PM830 lineup of SSDs last week for OEMs was notable for its 512GB maximum capacity. Consumers eager to get their hands on the drive are now in luck, as the consumer variant models are revealed to be launching this October.

Simply renamed as the 830 Series, the SSDs will supposedly feature the same read and write speeds of the PM830 counterpart, but will be packaged in a more sleek design with an aluminum build and a 3.5-inch adapter for desktop users. Samsung will also be bundling Norton Ghost for users to backup their data as needed. Encryption with 256-bit AES is supported for that extra layer of security.

The 830 Series is the upgrade to Samsung’s 470 Series of SSDs. Unlike the older lineup, the new models will support the SATA 3.0 bus interface.

The 830 Series should be available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB sizes at launch. There is no word yet on the official prices of these drives.
