The new 850 Pro Series SSD brings all new features to Samsung's award winning line. The new V-NAND fabrication process allows for higher density flash chips, meaning faster speeds and high capacities with no extra physical space required.
The new 850 series operates at up to 1.8x the speed of last year's model with higher performance NAND flash memory as well as the new RAPID mode. RAPID uses available system memory as a high speed cache, significantly improving read and write performance.
Despite the performance increase, the 850 Pro uses just 3.3 watts of power during active read/write processes and uses just .4 watts at (max) idle. These power saving features make it ideal for embedded systems.
The new drives also improve reliability, rated for up to 2 million hours (228 years) of power on time. The flash chips are rated for up to 150 TB of written data thanks to class leading garbage collection and TRIM support. All of this is backed up by a 10 year manufacturer's warranty.
