|Joining Samsung's SSD portfolio, the two drives are its highest storage options yet - as Samsung seeks to address an "ever-increasing consumer demand for high-performance and high-capacity memory solutions".|
The two new drives sport the same 7 mm, 2.5" aluminium case as their predecessors, and are equipped with Samsung's advanced chip solutions, including 128 individual Samsung 32-layer 128 GB 3D V-NAND flash chips, an upgraded high-performance MHX controller supporting 2 TB capacity, and four 20 nm-class process technology-based 4 GB LPDDR3 DRAM chips.
"Samsung experienced surge in demand for 500 gigabyte (GB) and higher capacity SSDs with the introduction of our V-NAND SSDs," Un-Soo Kim, Samsung Electronics senior vice president of branded product marketing, memory business, commented.
"The release of the 2 TB SSD is a strong driver into the era of multi-terabyte SSD solutions. We will continue to expand our ultra-high performance and large density SSD product portfolio and provide a new computing experience to users around the globe."
Samsung guarantees the 850 PRO for 10 years or 300 TB written, and the 850 EVO for five years or 150 TB written.
