Samsung 256GB 850 PRO 2.5 "SSDOverview What is V-NAND and How Does it Differ from Existing Technology? Samsung's Flash memory is fabricated using an innovative 3D V-NAND Architecture, which stacks 32 Cell layers on top of one another rather than trying to. decrease the cells' Length and width to Fit today's shrinking form factors. The Result is Higher density and Higher Performance using a smaller footprint and a breakthrough in overcoming the density limits of conventional planar NAND Architecture. Boost Performance with an Industry-Leading 3D V-. NAND SSD Powered by Samsung's cutting-EDGE 3D V-NAND Technology, the NAND Flash memory delivers the Ultimate in read and Write Performance in both sequential and Random aspects. This is especially Impressive in the 128GBmodel * that outperforms similar models on the Market by more. than 100MBps in Write speed. Shift Into High Gear with Enhanced RAPID Mode You Can Kick up the read / Write Performance on every capacity when You Need it with RAPID mode. Just like shifting Gears in a Car, Magician Software gives You the Option to Enhance. Performance by Data Processing System on a level using free PC memory (DRAM) as a cache, providing 1.8 times Faster Performance in the RAPID mode *. An SSD that Will not Quit Before You Do With twice the Endurance of the previous Model *,. the 850 PRO will keep working as long as you do. Samsung's V-NAND technology is built to handle 150 Terabytes Written (TBW) which equates to a 40GB daily read / write workload over a 10-year period. Plus, it comes with the Industry's top-level Ten-year Limited Warranty. Longer Work with High-Efficiency Innovation The efficient, Power Management components in the PRO 850 Enable You Work Longer and more productively. Boasting the lowest power consumption of any SSD when in full use, the 850 PRO expends less energy while maintaining market-leading performance. The 850 PRO fully supports the sleep mode on the Ultrabook ™, consuming only 2 milli-Watts of power. Plus, ITS LPDDR2 cache memory provides Higher Performance while consuming 30 PERCENT Less Power when active and 93 PERCENT Less Power when Idle than Typical DDR2 or DDR3 memory. Safeguard Precious Data Without sacrificing Performance Protect your PC's Hardware and Personal Data when You take your Laptop on. the road with the 850 PRO's SED technology. The Drive includes an AES-256-bit Hardware-based, full Disk Encryption Engine that secures your Data Without Performance degradation, often experienced with Software-based Encryption. Protect Your PC from Overheating with Dynamic Thermal Guard Protection The 850 PRO includes Dynamic Thermal Guard. Protection, which keeps your PC Performance Safe from overheating as well as Monitors and maintains the Drive's Optimal operating Temperature with a Throttle Feature that Automatically drops the SSD's Temperature when necessary to Protect your Data. Level Up to the 850 PRO Simply Without Any Hassle Using ITS. One-stop Install Navigator software, you can migrate all the data and applications from your SSD or HDD to the 850 PRO quickly and easily. Navigates the Auto Install Guide You Through the Simple Three-Step Process. Ensure Each Component Works seamlessly Together Samsung is one of the few manufacturers that actually Design all components in the SSD-House and has the Most Experience in the SSD Market. Because Samsung has intimate knowledge of every component and its parts, it can fine-tune them at each stage of development to ensure they work together beautifully. The Result - Enhanced Performance, Lower Power consumption with an up to 1GBLPDDR2 DRAM cache memory and improved Energy-efficiency with the Three-core MEX Controller.
