Samsung India has launched 860 PRO and 860 EVO solid state drives (SSDs), the new additions to the company’s SATA interface lineup.
860 PRO and 860 EVO are targeted at consumers who require fast, reliable performance across various applications, from everyday computing to heavy workloads and graphic-intensive operations. These two SSDs seem to be the updated versions of the 850 PRO and 850 EVO, which were introduced last year.
As file sizes continue to increase with high-resolution photos and 4K videos, the need for faster data transfers and sustainable high performance over a longer period of time has become paramount for users. To address this need, Samsung’s 860 PRO and 860 EVO support up to 560Mbps read and 530Mbps write speeds and offer with an upgraded five-year limited warranty, or up to 4,800 terabytes written (TBW) for the 860 PRO and up to 2,400 TBW for the 860 EVO. The new MJX controller is supposed to handle workstation storage while improving Linux operating system compatibility.
The 860 PRO is available in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities, with the 4TB memory storage holding up to 114 hours and 30 minutes of 4K Ultra HD video. The 860 PRO is available in a compatible 2.5-inch form factor, which is ideal for PCs, laptops, workstations and NAS.
The 860 EVO comes in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities, in a 2.5-inch for PCs and laptops, as well as mSATA and M.2 form factors for smaller computing applications. The company claims, due to its new Intelligent TurboWrite technology, 860 EVO to have six times longer sustained performance than its predecessor with read and write speeds of up to 550Mbps and 520Mbps, respectively.
The 860 PRO and 860 EVO SSDs are available from this month with retail prices starting at Rs 12,200 and Rs 8,750, respectively....
