3D V-NAND Technology and THE SAMSUNG SSD 850 EVO

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 VNAND 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 footprint.

The 850 EVO is the advanced consumer SSD powered by 3D V-NAND technology that maximizes everyday computing experiences with optimized performance and enhanced reliability.

Optimized performance for everyday computing experiences

Powered by Samsung's cutting-edge 3D V-NAND technology, 850 EVO delivers top-class sequential and random read and write performance to optimize everyday computing. With improved performance thanks to TurboWrite technology the 850 EVO provides not only more than a 10% better user experience than 840 EVO but up to 1.9x faster random write speeds for the 120/250 GB models as well. In fact, the 850 EVO delivers top class sequential read (540 MB/s) and write (520 MB/s) performance in all capacities. This comes with optimized random read and write performance on all QD and improved QD1 and QD2 random performance for Client PC usage.

Reinforcement of TurboWrite Technology

In the early stages of the 840 EVO, Samsung adopted sequential write performance first. With TurboWrite, write speeds are significantly accelerated during data transfers by creating a high-performance write buffer in the SSD. If a consecutive write operation (i.e. no idle time) exceeds the size of the buffer, the transfer will exit TurboWrite and be processed at "After TurboWrite" speeds. Once the buffer is cleared, TurboWrite performance will resume. However, the buffer size for TurboWrite is more than sufficient for everyday PC use, and you should experience accelerated speeds for most workloads.

For the 850 EVO, enhanced TurboWrite technology applied to random write speeds up to 1.9x faster for the 120 GB model and 1.25x faster for the 250GB model over the 840 EVO.

Guaranteed endurance

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. With twice the endurance of a typical NAND flash SSD, the 850 EVO will keep working as long as you do. The 850 EVO guarantees a 5 year limited warranty or 75TBW for 120GB and 250GB, 150TBW for 500GB and 1TB.

Enhanced reliability with improved sustained performance

With enhanced reliability through improved sustained performance, the 850 EVO assures longterm dependable performance up to 30% longer than the 840 EVO with minimized performance degradation. This means you can use it every day when taking care of work or entertaining yourself knowing it will keep performing even with heavy daily workloads over the years.

Advanced data encryption

The 850 EVO provides the same data encryption feature as the 840 EVO does. Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology will help keep data safe at all times. It includes an AES 256-bit hardwarebased encryption engine to ensure that your personal files remain secure. Being hardwarebased, the encryption engine secures your data without performance degradation that you may experience with a software-based encryption. Also, 850 EVO is compliant with advanced security management solutions (TCG Opal and IEEE 1667). Magician will guide "How to use security features". Furthermore, you can erase or initialize data with the crypto erase service with PSID.

  • Optimize daily computing with TurboWrite technology for unrivaled read/write speeds

    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. The 850EVO delivers the top of its class performance in sequential read and write speeds. Plus, you also gain optimized random performance in all QD for client PC usage scenario.
  • 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 Magician increased the maximum memory usage in rapid mode. 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. The 850 EVO through minimized performance degradation allows sustained performance improvements of up to 30% 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 efficiency. The 850 EVO is now 25% more power efficient 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 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 DRAM cache memory and improved energy-efficiency with the MEX/MGX controller.
