Samsung Electronics has launched the 850 EVO, the latest addition to its branded solid state drive (SSD) line-up. Based on Samsung's 3-bit 3D Vertical NAND (V-NAND) technology, the 850 EVO SSD provides a boost in performance and endurance as compared to its predecessor.
The new drive will be available globally in a total of 53 countries in the US, European and Asian markets later in December, according to the vendor.
The Samsung 850 EVO series comes in 1TB, 500GB, 250GB and 120GB capacity options, and boasts sequential read speeds of up to 540 megabytes per second (MB/s) and write speeds of up to 520 MB/s. With Samsung's TurboWrite technology, the 1TB version of the 850 EVO offers random write speeds of up to 90K IOPS, which enables fast storage of high volume data and multi-tasking operations.
Next year, Samsung plans to introduce an extended line-up of the 850 EVO in mSATA and M.2 form factors, based on 3-bit V-NAND technology.
