Samsung Electronics brings multi-terabyte storage capacities at accessible price

Samsung Electronics America, has unveiled its new consumer solid state drive (SSD) lineup — the Samsung 860 QVO SSD — featuring up to four terabytes (TB) of storage capacity with exceptional speed and reliability, the company said.

Built on the company´s high-density 4-bit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash architecture, the 860 QVO makes terabyte capacities more accessible to the masses at approachable price points.

Mainstream PC users handling large multi-media content often need to upgrade their PC´s storage to improve everyday computing experience. Based on the commonly used SATA interface and 2.5-inch form factor, the 860 QVO fits perfectly in most standard laptops or desktops. Also, by offering both high capacity and performance in a single, affordable drive, the 860 QVO eliminates the need to use a combination of an SSD and an HDD for booting and storage.

Featuring sequential read and write speeds of up to 550 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 520 MB/s, respectively1, the 860 QVO achieves the same level of performance as today´s 3-bit MLC SSD, thanks to Samsung´s latest 4-bit V-NAND and the proven MJX controller. The drive is also integrated with Intelligent TurboWrite technology2, which helps to accelerate speeds while maintaining high performance for longer periods of time.
