This latest addition to Samsung's solid state drive lineup is based on the 3-bit 3D Vertical NAND (V-NAND) technology and will be launched globally later this month with capacities starting at 120 GB and up to 1 TB.

Samsung announced earlier today the addition of a new member to its solid state drive lineup, namely the 850 EVO. This new drive uses Samsung's 3-bit 3D Vertical NAND (V-NAND) technology and is capable of providing "a significant boost in performance and endurance as compared to its predecessor." This makes it an ideal choice for use in mainstream PCs.

Samsung 850 EVO drives come with the following highlights:

  • Capacities: 120 GB, 250 GB, 250 GB, 1 TB
  • Sequential read: up to 540 MB/s
  • Sequential write: up to 520 MB/s
  • Random write: up to 90K IOPS (1 TB model)
  • Reliability: 80 GB daily data writes for five years (500 GB and 1 TB models)

The new 850 EVO lineup will receive new members next year, when Samsung plans to add mSATA and M.2 drives to this family. Pricing and more detailed specs will be available later this month, when the 850 EVO lineup is scheduled to go on sale in 53 countries worldwide, including the United States.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
