PC & Samsung SSD 840 Pro

An essential element for
professional computing

As a perfectionist in search of the best performance and with a desire to be among the best in your field, you deserve Samsung’s SSD 840 PRO. The 840 PRO is the fastest and most-reliable SSD on the market - unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. It assures a first-class user experience, which guarantees superior output on your behalf. Also, with 840 PRO’s AES-256bit Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) technology you can enjoy enforced data security without performance degradation compared to software based encryption by simply enabling an HDD password via your computer’s BIOS to lock your SSD. The 840 PRO is the best choice for professionals looking to keep their workflow supercharged and safe.

Performance at a different level

Integrated Solution

Samsung SSDs are designed completely in-house for quality control assurance. Furthermore, Samsung manufactures all of the main SSD components itself to arrive at the perfect solution. The result is enhanced performance with Toggle DDR2 NAND flash, lower power consumption with LPDDR2 cache memory, and improved energy efficiency with the 3-core MDX controller.

Toggle DDR2 N and Flash memory

Toggle DDR2 N AND Flash Memory

Samsung’s Toggle DDR2 NAND flash chips enable data transfer rates of up to 400 megabits per second (Mbps)-more than three times as fast as previous chips – offering dramatic read speed performance improvements. In addition to performance improvements, the chips also consume less power than competing NAND.

Multi-tasking multiplied. A powerful complement to Windows 8.

Outstanding Multi-Tasking Performance: Windows 8’s intuitive new Metro UI encourages multi-tasking. Samsung’s 840 Series SSD ensures users will experience great, lag-free performance when working with multiple applications.

Consistently Fast Boot Time: Worn-in Windows installations must manage a plethora of third-party applications, many of which load instructions at start-up. While an HDD will suffer performance deficits over time, the 840 Series industry-leading Random Read Speeds and Latency time ensure that boot times remain fast even after months of heavy OS use and application installs.

Ultra Low Power Consumption for
Longer Battery Life

Samsung has made major strides in power efficiency. It boasts the lowest idle power consumption of any SSD*, an extremely important achievement considering that SSDs spend the vast majority of their time sitting idle (a positive byproduct of their accelerated processing speeds). In fact, Samsung’s new MDX controller consumes only 40mwatt of power during idle mode - half that of its predecessor and up to 97% less than other SSD controllers. Further improvements come from the use of LPDDR2 cache memory, which offers higher performance while consuming 30% less power when active and 93% less power when idle than regular DDR2 or DDR3 memory. All of these results in an improvement of up to 30 minutes in battery life over the 830 Series, letting you get even more out of your mobile experience.

Enjoy rapid performance by switching to a higher gear

Enjoy rapid performance by switching to a higher gear

Just like changing gears in a car, you have the option of RAPID mode with Magician software, which greatly enhances performance by processing data on a system level through the use of free PC memory (DRAM) as a cache. Depending on your PC memory (DRAM), you can expect higher performance and more efficient command processing, which improves with repeated tasking. Boost into a higher gear to vastly improve QD1 random write performance to almost the same level as QD32 and achieve blazing fast speeds.
