Samsung, which first brought the planar 3-bit MLC based SSD, 840 in 2012 and the V-NAND SSDs, 850 PRO and 850 EVO in 2014 to the market, continuously strives to improve product reliability and performance. With its proven V-NAND technology, Samsung brings 4-bit MLC V-NAND, a new paradigm in the NAND Flash world. The Samsung SSD 860 QVO is the Samsung’s first 4-bit MLC client SATA SSD with integrated cutting-edge V- NAND and a fine-tuned MJX Controller. It gives optimized quality and value to general users who requires cost effective terabyte capacity SSDs with optimal performance. The 860 QVO, with the virtues of its highly optimized and well-organized integration of V-NAND 4bit MLC, MJX Controller, DRAM and specially-designed Intelligent TurboWrite, offers better performance for real-world computing experiences. The 860 QVO delivers top-notch sequential read and write performance (up to 550MB/s for reads, up to 520MB/s for writes) that are approaching close to the SATA interface limits (600MB/s) and also provides highly competitive random performances (up to 97K IOPS for read, up to 89K IOPS for writes). Through the long history of efforts and expertise in the industry, Samsung has launched the 4-bit MLC based SSD with improved reliability and enhanced Intelligent TurboWrite to overcome its physical structure. Intelligent TurboWrite featured in 860 QVO identifies user workloads intelligently and designates the appropriate SLC buffer which Samsung has defined based on studies on recent data trends. With Samsung’s confidence in its NAND reliability, the refined MJX controller and advanced ECC algorithm, the 860 QVO promises to deliver worry-free endurance up to 1,440TB of Total Bytes Written along with a 3- year limited warranty. The 860 QVO provides multiple advanced data encryption features like Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology that will help keep data safe at all times. The 860 QVO includes an AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption engine to ensure that your personal files remain secure. Also, the 860 QVO is compliant with various advanced security management solutions (TCG Opal and Encrypted Drive-IEEE1667).The 860 QVO adopts the MJX controller originally designed to support all kinds of SATA applications and highly optimized to cover various types of system environments. The MJX controller is widely proven by the previous 860 EVO and PRO. The 860 QVO completely supports the Linux operating system by providing queued TRIM. The 860 QVO delivers terabyte capacities at an affordable price-point thanks to the 4-bit MLC NAND architecture, which allows more storage in one cell, making it possible to build an SSD up to 16TB in a 2.5” 7mmT form factor. Now, consumers can easily transition to a single, high-capacity SSD at a reduced co st, while eliminating the need to use a combination of a low-capacity SSD as a boot drive and a high-capacity HDD as a data storage drive. It makes the users experience the full performance of SSD with large capacities. (Note: with the current MJX controller, 8TB is the maximum capacity. With the 2.5” 15mmT form factor and the new controller developed, 32TB is available to provide.) The 860 QVO comes with Samsung Data Migration and Magician Software, which is easy to install and makes management of you SSD simple. Samsung Data Migration software is uncomplicated to use – yet provides a very powerful “Custom Cloning” feature that makes migration effortless even when the source data is greater than the SSD’s capacity. Magician provides personalized firmware checks and additional functions tailored for individual users’ drives. It even updates the firmware automatically to make sure that the drives’ performance stays up to date.
