Samsung 860 Evo SSD

The SSD that makes the difference

 

The marketing slogan 'The SSD that makes the difference' might be kind of kitchy - but hey, when you have been making the world's best selling SSD with the Samsung 850 Evo already, then let the marketing guys have their day we say.

Rather than being just a successor to the 850 Evo SSD, the 860 Evo SSD delivers higher performance at lower queue depths throughout the entire capacity range of 250GB to 4TB with significant technological advancements. It features a new MJX controller and Samsung's own fourth-generation 64-layer V-NAND, which is 30% more energy efficient than its 48-layer predecessor. Chris Ramseyer, senior storage editor at Toms Hardware also noted this in his recent review of the 860 Evo 2.5-inch version:

The 860 EVO breaks new ground for endurance. If it wasn't for the new 860 Pro that provides twice the endurance rating, the 860 EVO would top the consumer SSD market with its 150TB of write endurance for every 250GB of usable capacity.

The SSD to trust

The newest edition to the world’s best-selling* SATA SSD series, the Samsung 860 EVO, is specially designed for mainstream PCs and laptops. With the latest V-NAND and a robust algorithm-based controller, this fast and reliable SSD comes in a wide range of compatible form factors and capacities. (See the table below for details on all the various form factors)

* Sources: NPD (US data from Jan. 2015 to Oct. 2017) and GfK (EU5 data from Jan. 2015 to Sep. 2017, China data from Jan. 2016 to Sep. 2017)

Enhanced Performance

The 860 Evo offers speeds that are more consistent than previous 840/850 Evo models, even with heavy workloads and multi-tasking operations. Sequential write speeds reach up to 520 MB/s* with Intelligent TurboWrite technology, and sequential reads up to 550 MB/s. Additionally, the TurboWrite buffer size* is upgraded from 12 GB to 78 GB for faster file transfer.

* Performance may vary based on SSD’s firmware version and system hardware & configuration. Sequential write performance measurements are based on Intelligent TurboWrite technology. Sequential performance measurements based on CrystalDiskMark v.5.0.2 and IOmeter 1.1.0. The sequential write performances after Intelligent TurboWrite region are 300 MB/s for 250/500 GB and 500 MB/s for 1 TB.
* Test system configuration: Intel Core i5-3550 CPU @ 3.3 GHz, DDR3 1333 MHz 4 GB, OS – Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Chipset: ASUS P8H77-V
* The TurboWrite buffer size varies based on the capacity of the SSD; 12 GB for 250 GB model, 22 GB for 500 GB model and 42 GB for 1 TB model. For more information on the TurboWrite, please visit www.samsungssd.com.

Longer Endurance

Safely store and render large sized 4K videos and 3D data used by the latest applications, up to 8x higher TBW (Terabytes Written)* than the previous 850 EVO. The latest V-NAND technology gives you up to 600 TBW, or is backed by a 5-year limited warranty.*

* Warrantied TBW for 860 EVO: 150 TBW for 250 GB model, 300 TBW for 500 GB model, 600 TBW for 1 TB model
* 5-years or TBW, whichever comes first. For more information on the warranty, please find the enclosed warranty statement in the package

Better Performance on just about any Computer System

Smart compatibility

Benefit from faster, more fluid communication with your host system. The refined ECC* algorithm and a new MJX controller generate higher speeds, and the improved queued trim enhances Linux compatibility. Samsung's engineering makes the 860 EVO more compatible with your computing system.

* Error Correction Code

Multiple Form Factors

Whatever size or form factor of storage device your computer needs, there is an 860 EVO for you. Choose among the 2.5-inch size for desktop PCs and laptops, and the SATA-based M.2 (2280) or mSATA for ultra-slim computing devices.
