Samsung may add 4 TB model to 850 EVO SSD line

Samsung’s best-selling 850 EVO line of solid-state drives currently sports a top-of-the-line model with 2 TB of capacity. According to some online stores, though, there will be a 4 TB model soon. In fact these stores are so certain in the existence of this model that they have already listed it.

The upcoming 4 TB model will not differ much from its predecessors – this SSD will come in the common 2.5-inch form factor and will be just 7 mm thick. It will reach 540 MB/sec of read and 520 MB/sec of write speed as well as 98 000 IOPS when reading and 90 000 IOPS when writing. The drive comes with a Mean Time Before Failure (MTBF) indicator of 1.5 million hours and features endurance of 300 TBW. In addition to this the 4 TB model sports 256-bit AES encryption.

It is unclear when this 4 TB Samsung 850 EVO model will be unveiled but the preliminary price of the device is USD 1499.
