Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
What is 3D V-NAND and how does it differ from existing technology?
Samsung’s unique and innovative 3D V-NAND flash memory architecture is a
breakthrough in overcoming the density limitations, performance and endurance of
today’s conventional planar NAND architecture. 3D V-NAND is fabricated by
stacking 32 cell layers vertically over one another rather than decreasing the
cells dimensions and trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space
resulting in higher density and better performance utilizing a smaller
Optimize daily computing with TurboWrite technology for unrivalled read/write
Achieve the ultimate read/write performance to maximize your everyday
computing experience with Samsung’s TurboWrite technology. You not only obtain
more than a 10% better user experience than 840 EVO* but up to 1.9x faster
random write speeds for 120/250 GB models as well. The 850EVO delivers the top
of its class performance in sequential read (540MB/s) and write (520MB/s)
speeds. Plus, you also gain optimized random performance in all QD for client PC
Get into the fast lane with the improved RAPID mode
Samsung’s Magician software which provides Rapid Mode for 2x faster
processing data speeds on a system level by utilizing unused PC memory (DRAM) as
cache storage. The newest Magician increased the maximum memory usage in Rapid
mode from 1 GB, in the previous 840 EVO version, to up to 4 GB with the 850 EVO
when implementing 16 GB of DRAM. You also get a 2x performance* boost in all
random Queue depth.
Guaranteed endurance and reliability bolstered by 3D V-NAND technology
The 850 EVO delivers guaranteed endurance and reliability by doubling the
TBW* compared to the previous generation 840 EVO backed by an industry leading 5
year warranty. The 850 EVO through minimized performance degradation allows
sustained performance improvements of up to 30% over the 840 EVO proving to be
one of the most dependable storage devices.
Compute longer with improved energy efficiency
backed by 3D V-NAND
The 850 EVO delivers significantly longer battery life on your notebook with a
controller optimized for 3D V-NAND now enabling Device Sleep at a highly
efficient 2mW. The 850 EVO is now 25% more power efficient to the 840 EVO during
write operations thanks to 3D V-NAND only consuming half the energy than that of
Planar 2D NAND.
Secure valuable data through advanced
AES 256 encryption
The 850 EVO comes fortified with the latest hardware-based full disk encryption
engine. The AES 256 encryption-bit security technology secures data without any
performance degradation and complies with TCG Opal 2.0. It is also compatible
with Microsoft e-drive IEEE1667 so your data is protected at all times for your
peace of mind.
Protect against overheating with a highly responsive
Dynamic Thermal Guard
The 850 EVO’s Dynamic Thermal Guard constantly monitors and maintains ideal
temperatures for the drive to operate in optimal conditions for the integrity of
your data. When temperatures rise above an optimal threshold, the Thermal Guard
automatically throttles temperatures down protecting your data while maintaining
responsiveness to ensure your computer is always safe from overheating.
Level up to the 850 EVO simply without any hassle
In three simple steps the Samsung’s One-stop Install Navigator software
easily allows you to migrate all the data and applications from the existing
primary storage to the 850 EVO. The Samsung Magician software also allows you to
optimize and manage your system best suited for your SSD.
Acquire an integrated in-house solution consisting of top-quality components
Samsung is the only SSD brand to design and manufacture all its components
in-house allowing complete optimized integration. The result – enhanced
performance, lower power consumption with an up to 1 GB LPDDR2 DRAM cache memory
and improved energy-efficiency with the MEX/MGX controller.
