Samsung to offer SSD 850 PRO solid-state drives

The Korean Samsung plans to introduce a new SSD family in October of this year. The new company SSDs will belong to the new SSD 850 PRO line and will come with some rather intriguing new technologies.

Samsung expects the new line to be successful due to the addition of a three-core MEX memory controller and 32-layer 3D V-NAND flash buffer memory with a 3D internal structure that increases SSD reliability by 2-10 times and data transfer rates by 2 times.

The internal 3D V-NAND flash memory is rather spacious at 10.75 GB in size which will further increase performance. As to SSD 850 PRO capacities expect models with capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. The drives are capable of reaching 550 MB/sec of read speed and 520 MB/sec of write speed for the 256 GB/512 GB/1 TB models, while the 128 GB version will be a bit slower at 550/470 MB/sec of reading/writing. In addition the new drives reach 100 000 IOPS and 90 000 IOPS when reading and writing for all models. The SSDs support AES-256, TCG Opal 2.0 and IEEE-1667 encryption.

Samsung says the SSD 850 PRO drives offer extreme reliability that reaches 150 TB of recorded data. Users will also get a 10-year warranty. There is no information on the SSD pricing but the line is likely to be expensive when it comes in October of this year.
