Samsung shows SSD 850 EVO solid-state drives

There’s a new SSD family out there and it comes from Samsung, carrying the SSD 850 EVO brand name. It has been in the news in the past few weeks but an official demonstration has just taken place.

Okay, here’s what you get as of now. The SSD 850 EVO family comes in the common 2.5-inch form factor and features a multi-core memory controller known as MEX and 10 nm TLC NAND flash memory with 3D vertical transistors with enhanced life expectancy.

Expecting more? Unfortunately there’s no more information on the new SSD family as Samsung has shared none. No info on the tech specs either. Samsung promises excellent data transfer speeds, though, and advanced technologies under the hood but this remains to be seen. The only thing that we know is that the SSD 850 EVO supports SATA 3.0, which should be the norm anyway.

The new drives are expected to hit the market in Q4 2014. The pricing of the new SSDs is unknown at the moment.
