Lat­est se­ries of solid-state drives from Sam­sung

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

RS Com­po­nents now of­fers the SSD 860 range of solid-state drives (SSDs) from Sam­sung. The com­pany says that based on the man­u­fac­turer’s cut­ting-edge 3D Ver­ti­cal NAND ( V-NAND) multi-level-cell (MLC) flash­mem­ory tech­nol­ogy, the 860 range im­proves on Sam­sung’s highly pop­u­lar SSD 850 range of SSDs to de­liver en­hanced speed, re­li­a­bil­ity and ca­pac­ity for users.

The new SSDs are avail­able in two se­ries: the PRO se­ries, which tar­gets use with high-end and en­ter­prise com­put­ing de­vices; and the EVO se­ries, which has been spe­cially de­signed for gen­eral con­sumer com­put­ing ap­pli­ca­tions.

The 860 PRO drives have been de­signed to achieve highly sus­tain­able and de­pend­able per­for­mance and han­dle heavy daily data-trans­fer work­loads. Based on Sam­sung’s lat­est 64-layer 2-bit V-NAND ar­chi­tec­ture, the se­ries also comes equipped with the com­pany’s newly de­signed MJX con­troller to de­liver best-in-class se­quen­tial read and write speeds: up to 560 and 530 megabytes per sec­ond (MB/s) per­for­mance, re­spec­tively. This level of per­for­mance starts to ap­proach the the­o­ret­i­cal band­width lim­i­ta­tion of 600MB/s for the legacy Se­rial-ATA (SATA) in­ter­face, which many SSD man­u­fac­tur­ers have tried to reach over the years, states RS.

The se­ries also of­fers guar­an­teed en­durance and high re­li­a­bil­ity with the in­dus­try’s high­est rating of 4800TB To­tal Bytes Writ­ten ( TBW) – in com­pli­ance with JESD218

Stan­dards – which is ap­prox­i­mately eight times higher than the pre­de­ces­sor 850 PRO se­ries.

The SSD 860 EVO se­ries tar­gets use with main­stream desk­tops and lap­tops. Like the PRO, it comes equipped with the newly de­signed MJX con­troller but is also the world’s first line of con­sumer SSDs to fea­ture the man­u­fac­turer’s 3-bit V-NAND MLC tech­nol­ogy, says RS. The 860 EVO de­liv­ers ‘ex­cel­lent’ se­quen­tial read and write per­for­mance – up to 550MB/s and 520MB/s speeds, re­spec­tively, along with highly sus­tain­able per­for­mance for ev­ery­day com­put­ing ap­pli­ca­tions. The 860 EVO se­ries also de­liv­ers a TBW rating of up to 2400TB, which is up to six times higher than the 850 EVO se­ries.

In ad­di­tion, to meet the need for ever-faster data trans­fers and high per­for­mance over longer pe­ri­ods of time, the 860 EVO se­ries in­te­grates Sam­sung’s In­tel­li­gent Tur­boWrite tech­nol­ogy, which au­to­mat­i­cally de­cides how much space to al­lo­cate to the Tur­boWrite re­gion in ac­cor­dance with sys­tem work­load. This en­ables the 860 EVO to pro­vide sig­nif­i­cantly ac­cel­er­ated write per­for­mance that is up to six times longer than the pre­vi­ous ver­sion of Tur­boWrite, which was in­te­grated into the 850 EVO se­ries.
