What is 3D V-NAND and how does it differ from existing technology?
Samsung’s unique and innovative 3D V-NAND flash memory architecture is a breakthrough in overcoming the density limitations, performance and endurance of today’s conventional planar NAND architecture. 3D V-NAND is fabricated by stacking 32 cell layers vertically over one another rather than decreasing the cells dimensions and trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space resulting in higher density and better performance utilizing a smaller footprint.
Help maximise daily computing with TurboWrite technology for powerful read/write speeds
Help maximise your everyday computing experience with Samsung’s TurboWrite technology with powerful read/write performance . It achieves up to 1.9x faster random write speeds for 120/250 GB models compared to the Samsung SSD 840 EVO**. The Samsung SSD 850 EVO delivers great performance in sequential read (540MB/s) and write (520MB/s) speeds. Plus, you also gain great random write performance in QD for client PC usage scenario.

Help secure valuable data through advanced AES 256 encryption
The Samsung SSD 850 EVO comes with Samsung's latest hardware-based full disk encryption engine. The AES 256 encryption-bit security technology helps secures data without performance degradation and complies with TCG Opal 2.0. It is also compatible with Microsoft e-drive IEEE1667 to help ensure your data is protected.
Helps protect against overheating with a highly responsive Dynamic Thermal Guard
The Samsung SSD 850 EVO’s Dynamic Thermal Guard is designed to monitor and maintain ideal temperatures to help the drive to operate in optimal conditions for the integrity of your data. When temperatures rise above an optimal threshold, the Thermal Guard automatically throttles temperatures down helping to protect your data while maintaining responsiveness to help ensure your compatible computer is safe from overheating.
Level up to the Samsung SSD 850 EVO with ease
