850 EVO mSATA SSD Solid State Drives
V-NAND technology in the Samsung 850 EVO mSATA SSD
Samsung’s unique V-NAND flash memory architecture is a breakthrough in overcoming the density, performance and endurance limitations of today’s conventional planar NAND architecture. V-NAND is fabricated by stacking cell layers vertically, rather than decreasing the cells’ dimensions to fit into increasingly smaller form factors. The result is higher density and better performance with a smaller footprint.
Optimized performance for everyday computing
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. The 850 EVO mSATA seamlessly integrates V-NAND memory, a MGX controller, DRAM memory and Samsung Magician software for high optimization. Like the 2.5″ form factor, the 850 EVO mSATA maximizes the user experience with a trace-based benchmark, giving you form factor flexibility for SATA 6Gb/s interfaces.
Reinforcement of TurboWrite technology
Samsung was the first to introduce TurboWrite technology to sequential write performance. 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. But since the buffer size is more than sufficient for everyday computer use, users experience accelerated speeds for most workloads.
Guaranteed endurance and reliability for maximum use
The 850 EVO mSATA Series delivers guaranteed endurance and reliability by doubling the TeraBytes Written (TBW) compared to the previous generation 840 EVO Series. The 850 EVO mSATA Series is backed by an industry-leading 5 year warranty or 75TBW (250 GB)/150TBW (500 GB, 1 TB). With twice the endurance of a typical NAND flash SSD, the 850 EVO mSATA Series will keep working as long as you do.
Enhanced reliability with improved sustained performance
The 850 EVO mSATA Series boasts dependable performance up to 40% longer than the 840 EVO Series, with minimized performance degradation. You can use it every day, knowing it will perform at the highest levels for years.
Advanced data encryption
Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology helps keep your data safe. An AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption engine secures your data without any of the performance degradation you might experience with software-based encryption. The 850 EVO mSATA is compliant with advanced security management solutions (TCG Opal and IEEE 1667), and you can erase or initialize data with the PSID crypto erase service.
Efficient power management for all PC applications
Since V-NAND uses half the power of 2D planar NAND, you save up to 50% more power during write operations than with the 840 EVO Series. And with a highly efficient 2mW Device Sleep feature and a controller optimized for V-NAND, you get longer battery life.
