Meet Samsung 4TB 850 EVO SSD
Last year, Samsung has expanded the 850 Pro and EVO lines with 2TB models and now, Samsung is introducing a 4TB version of the 850 Evo that could easily replace a reasonably large hard drive. Though HDDs offer greater amounts of bulk storage but it is the biggest consumer SSD with plenty of room to store large photo collections, games, videos and lots more. The new Samsung 4TB 850 EVO doubles the capacity of Samsung’s EVO SSD line but that additional storage comes with a price tag of $1500.
The 48-layer V-NAND is coming to the 2.5” 850 EVO line in the form of a new 4TB model. With this high-capacity option, Samsung is appealing to serious professionals such as video editors and wealthy gamers. The read and write speeds on 850 EVO SSDs are capped at 540MB/s and 520/MBs respectively. The 4TB model uses Samsung MHX controller and can support SATA 3GB/s and SATA 1.5GB/s. In terms of performance, it offers one of the top-of-the-line performances.
