Key Features

  • Fast Start-Up
Samsung's unique and innovative V-NAND flash memory architecture is a breakthrough in overcoming the density limitations, performance and endurance of today's conventional planar NAND architecture. V-NAND is fabricated by stacking 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 Series is the advanced consumer SSD powered by V-NAND technology that maximizes everyday computing experiences with optimized performance and enhanced reliability. Powered by Samsung's cutting edge V-NAND technology, the 850 EVO mSATA delivers top class sequential and random read and write performance to optimize everyday computing experiences. The 850 EVO mSATA is seamlessly integrated with V-NAND, MEX/MGX controller, DRAM and software for high optimization. Like the 2.5-Inch form factor model, the 850 EVO mSATA maximizes user experience with trace based benchmark, meaning that the 850 EVO mSATA provides form factor flexibility for SATA 6Gb/s interface by providing various yet standardized option. Therefore, you can enjoy Samsung's state-of-the-art technology no matter which form factor your device supports. Samsung was the first one to introduceTuboWrite Technology to sequential write performance in the early stages of the 840 EVO Series. With TurboWrite Technology, write speeds have been significantly accelerated during data transfer by creating a high performance write buffer in an SSD. If a consecutive write operation (i.e. no idle time) exceeds the size of a buffer, the transfer will exit TurboWrite and be processed at (After TurboWrite) speeds. Once the buffer is cleared, the TurboWrite performance will resume. However, since the buffer size for TurboWrite is more than sufficient for everyday computer use, users can experience accelerated speeds for most workloads. The 850 EVO Series delivers guaranteed endurance and reliability by doubling the TeraBytes Written (TBW) compared to the previous generation 840 EVO Series backed by an industry leading 5 year warranty. With twice the endurance of a typical NAND flash SSD, the 850 EVO Series will keep working as long as you do. All form factors of the 850 EVO Series are guaranteed with a 5 year limited warranty or 75TBW for 120GB and 250GB, 150TBW for 500GB and 1TB. Through enhanced reliability with improved sustained performance, the 850 EVO mSATA boasts long term dependable performance of up to 40 percent longer than the 840 EVO Series with minimized performance degradation. You can use it every day when doing work or entertaining yourself knowing that it will keep performing even with heavy daily workloads over the years. Regardless of which form factor it is, the 850 EVO Series provides the same data encryption as the 840 EVO Series does. The Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology will help keep your data safe at all times. The device is equipped with an AES 256-bit hardware based encryption engine to ensure that your personal files remain secure. A hardware based encryption engine secures your data without performance degradation that you may experience with a software-based encryption. Furthermore, the 850 EVO mSATA is compliant with advanced security management solutions (TCG Opal and IEEE 1667). Magician will guide you on (How to use security features). Moreover, you can erase or initialize the data with the crypto erase service with PSID. Power consumption affects everyone. You actually save of up to 50 percent more on power than with the 840 EVO Series during write operations thanks to V-NAND consuming half the power of 2D planar NAND. Plus, whether you would like to preserve battery life for longer cordless use or just save costs, power management is important. Device sleep signals the SSD to enter a low power state which is vital for ultra-books and other battery powered devices. With 850 EVO mSATA's Device Sleep feature at a highly efficient 2mW, you get longer battery life on your notebook thanks to a controller optimized for V-NAND. With the 850 EVO mSATA, you can work and play longer without having to plug in.
