The Samsung SSD 860 EVO is the newest of Samsung’s SATA SSDs, specially designed for desktops and laptops.
Building on the reputation of the Samsung SSD 850 EVO, the world’s first line of consumer SSDs with V-NAND 3bit MLC technology, the new Samsung SSD 860 EVO drives achieve industry-leading performance for SATA SSDs, offering improvements in speed, reliability, compatibility and capacity. The 860 EVO comes equipped with Samsung’s newly designed MJX controller along with the latest V-NAND architecture. Enhanced Computing Experiences The legacy Serial-ATA (SATA) interface faces the theoretical bandwidth limitation of 600MB/s which many SSD manufacturers have tried to reach over the years. Among them, Samsung, which first brought V-NAND technology to the market, continuously strives to improve product reliability and performance, even with the SATA interface limitations. Powered by Samsung’s latest V-NAND technology, the 860 EVO delivers top-notch sequential read (up to 550 MB/s) and write (up to 520 MB/s) speeds and along with high sustainable performance for everyday computing experiences. As the amount of data processing continuously increases, the need for faster data transfers and sustainable high performance over longer periods of time has become paramount in importance for users. To address this need, Samsung has newly introduced Intelligent TurboWrite technology.
With this, the 860 EVO provides significantly accelerated write performance which is up to 6 times longer than that of the previous 850 EVO. Intelligent TurboWrite automatically decides how much space to allocate to the TurboWrite region in accordance with your system workload. So in a heavy workload situation, TurboWrite region will expand by up to 6 times versus that of the previous version of TurboWrite. helping to avoid sudden write performance drops which sometimes occur when performing large file transfer and ensuring that consumers enjoy the best write performance for longer than ever.
