Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5" SATA III Internal Solid State Drive
Offer updated on 9/28/2022
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 footprint. <b> Optimize daily computing with TurboWrite technology for unrivalled read/write speeds </b> 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 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 usage scenario. <b> Get into the fast lane with the improved RAPID mode </b> 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 al l random Queue depth. <b> Guaranteed endurance and reliability bolstered by 3D V-NAND technology </b> 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. <b> Compute longer with improved energy efficiency backed by 3D V-NAND </b> 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. <b> Secure valuable data through advanced AES 256 encryption </b> 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. <b> Protect against overheating with a highly responsive Dynamic Thermal Guard </b> The 850 EVO's Dynamic Thermal Guard constantly monitors and maintains ideal temperatures for the drive to operate in...
