Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today introduced the 860 PRO and 860 EVO solid state drives (SSDs), the most up-to-date additions to the company’s SATA interface line-up. The products are aimed at consumers who require fast, reliable performance across various applications, from everyday computing to heavy workloads and graphic-intensive operations. Building on the successful launch of the 850 PRO and 850 EVO – the industry’s first consumer SSDs with V-NAND technology – the 860 PRO and 860 EVO achieve industry-leading performance for SATA SSDs, offering enhancements in speed, reliability, compatibility and capacity.

“The new 860 PRO and 860 EVO SSDs combine the latest 512Gb and 256Gb 64-layer V-NAND, up to 4GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM and a new MJX controller to elevate the user experience for both consumers and businesses,” said Un-Soo Kim, senior vice president of Brand Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung will continue to fuel meaningful innovations in the consumer SSD space and drive growth of the overall memory industry for years to come.”

As file sizes continue to increase with high-resolution photos and 4K videos, the need for faster data transfers and sustainable high performance over a longer period of time has become paramount for users. To address this need, Samsung’s 860 PRO and 860 EVO support up to 560 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write[1] speeds and offer unmatched reliability with an upgraded five-year limited warranty[2], or up to 4,800 terabytes written (TBW)[3] for the 860 PRO and up to 2,400 TBW[4] for the 860 EVO. The new MJX controller also enables faster communication with the host system. The controller is powerful enough to handle workstation storage, while improving Linux operating system compatibility.

Craige Fleischer, Vice President of Integrated Mobility Samsung South Africa says, “We are keeping ahead of the curve as computer technology evolves and the way in which people use this technology changes, to address present and future needs practically and innovatively. The 860 PRO and 860 EVO will enable users to take what they do to the next level of speed, reliability and efficiency.”

The 860 PRO are available in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB[5] capacities, with the 4TB memory storage holding up to 114 hours and 30 minutes of 4K Ultra HD video. The 860 PRO is available in a widely compatible 2.5-inch form factor, which is ideal for PCs, laptops, workstations and NAS.

The 860 EVO come in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB[6] capacities, in a 2.5-inch for PCs and laptops, as well as mSATA and M.2 form factors for ultra-slim computing applications. The 860 EVO has up to six times longer sustained performance than its predecessor due to enhanced Intelligent TurboWrite[7] technology, with read and write speeds of up to 550 MB/s and 520 MB/s[8], respectively.
The 860 PRO and 860 EVO SSDs are available from the 23rd of January 2018. For more information, please visit http://www.samsung.com/za/ssd/
