25/01/2018 - SSD 860 EVO and PRO from Samsung

After more than three years of huge successes in the SATA SSD market, the emblematic and particularly popular Samsung 850 Evo and 850 Pro series, which first brought 3D NAND flash memory to the market, are being replaced. Samsung officially announced the new Solid State Drive series she launches, called 860 Evo and 860 Pro.

As is clear from the relatively little change in the names, the new 860 series is not revolutionary like the 850, as Samsung does not promise any massive leap in terms of performance over the past. This is more of a normal upgrading of today's models, which represents the continued development of Samsung's SSD technology.

The biggest change is the transition from the 48-layer V-NAND flash memory to the 64-layer V-NAND flash (combining 512Gb and 256Gb 64-layer V-NAND technology), while they also incorporate an upgraded MJX SSD memory controller and a LPDDR4 DRAM versus the previous generation LPDDR3 DRAM.

The Pro Series support slightly higher read and write speeds (560MB/s and 530MB/s for Pro - 550MB/s and 520MB/s for Evo) while at the same time it supports twice total records from the Evo series, mainly due to MLC 2-bit memory technology instead of the slower, less reliable, yet more economical 3-bit MLC 3D NAND (also known as TLC) memory found in the Evo series.

The 860 Evo series will be released in 2.5-inch form factor in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities. Concerning m.2 form factor, it will be available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB capacities while in mSATA there will be 250GB, 500GB and 1TB capacities. Prices start at $ 94.99 for the 250GB model and reach $ 169.99, $ 329.99, $ 649.99 and $ 1399.99 for the 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB models respectively.

As for the Samsung 860 Pro series, it is available in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities and only in 2.5-inch form factor priced at $ 139.99, $ 249.99, $ 479.99, $ 949.99 and reaching at $ 1899.99.

The difference in the number of TBWs (Terra Bytes Writen) between the two EVO and PRO models doubles, since there is a corresponding increase depending on the capacity of the disk. The most notable change, however, is the decrement in the 860 PRO warranty period (compared to 850pro) from 10 to 5 years.

Samsung's new solid state drives will be available from the end of the month and the 860 series could definitely be one of the best of 2018.
