Admin Topics 171

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO offers up to 90,000 IOPS random writes and a 540/520 MBps sequential read/write speed – both made possible by Samsung 3D V-NAND technology and 850 EVO’s MEX controllers. According to Samsung, with the 850 EVO solid state drive in RAPID mode (Real-time Accelerated Processing of I/O Data) users may achieve 200% better write performance speeds than possible with 840 EVO. Samsung Magician software allows users to further enhance performance by processing data on a system level using free PC memory (DRAM) as a storage cache. The 850 EVO provides an industry-leading five-year product warranty, and top-level Total Bytes Written (TBW). Samsung’s 32-layer 3D V-NAND Flash has more than double the endurance compared with conventional 2D planar type NAND flash.
