Samsung SSD Global Summit Announcements

samsung_840_evo_ssd
Yesterday, Samsung announced a new line of SSD’s called The Samsung 840 EVO series; The Samsung 840 EVO is a consumer high performance SSD which for the first time comes in a 1000GB option along with four other options (120GB, 250 GB, 500GB, and 750GB).

Pricing and Specifications:
The pricing seems to be middle of the road until you get to the 1000GB model which seems to be quite the cost saving bargain when looking at Price Per GB at just $0.65 which is considerably low when compared to other premium SSD brands. When compared to Samsung’s other consumer lines it seems to be the middle child so to speak with the 250GB Samsung 840 being priced at $175, The Samsung 840 EVO 250GB at $189.99, and the Samsung 840 Pro 256GB at about $229.99.

This new range of Samsung SSD’s seem to be in the high end of performance once you get into the 500GB and above range, however, before that you do see lower performance. Whereas many technology reviewers will focus on the read and write performance it is also very important to consider the Random Read and Random Write performance because those numbers will more accurately represent the performance of everyday things such as opening large applications. Even though most will never use an SSD to its full potential it is still important to consider these facts. However, once you get to the 500GB level you do see a noticeable increase in random write speeds. Essentially, what Samsung is pushing this new EVO model because of their newer controller the Samsung MEX which has a new capability for their smaller capacity models called TurboWrite. This is great to see because in the past the write speeds on smaller capacity SSD’s has been much lower than their older brothers. For comparison, the Samsung 840 120GB is rated at 120 MB/s and the New Samsung 840 EVO 120GB is rated at 410 MB/s.

SIZE PRICE PRICE PER/GB READ WRITE RANDOM READ RANDOM WRITE CACHE
120GB $109.99 $0.92 540 MB/s 410 MB/s 94K IOPS 35K IOPS 256MB
250GB $189.99 $0.76 540 MB/s 520 MB/s 97K IOPS 66K IOPS 512MB
500GB $369.99 $0.74 540 MB/s 520 MB/s 98K IOPS 90K IOPS 512MB
750GB $529.99 $0.71 540 MB/s 520 MB/s 98K IOPS 90K IOPS 512MB
1000GB $649.99 $0.65 540 MB/s 520 MB/s 98K IOPS 90K IOPS 1GB

The bottom line is that this new Samsung SSD looks to be a promising middle priced high performance SSD for the consumer. However, because Samsung is using a new controller with this device we do recommend that you should wait to buy until there have been some solid reviews!

Sidenote: At their SSD Summit event Samsung also announced the XS1715, an super-fast NVMe (Non-Volitile Memory Express) SSD with storage options of all the way up to 1.6 TB! The XS1715 is the first and only 2.5” sized SFF-8639 SSD using PCIe 3.0 to encourage a max sequential speed of 3 GB/s, as well as 740k IOPS.
