    SSD 850 EVO UNLEASH THE POWER OF PERFORMANCE AND ENDURANCE.

850 EVO

Overview

Untap your computer's potential

The Samsung SSD 850 EVO elevates the everyday computing experience to a higher level of performance and endurance than was ever imagined. Powered by Samsung's unmatched V-NAND technology, no wonder the 850 EVO is the best-selling* SSD for everyday computing. Designed for mainstream desktop PCs and laptops, the 850 EVO comes in a wide range of capacities and form factors. * Based on 850 EVO revenues in US and EU5

Uncompromised performance

The 850 EVO optimizes performance for your daily computing tasks, boasting sequential write speeds up to 520 MB/s with TurboWrite technology and sequential read speeds up to 540 MB/s. Plus, RAPID mode further boosts performance for up to 2x faster* data processing speeds on a system level by utilizing unused PC memory as cache storage. * These results were determined by PCMARK®7 testing with scores of 7,519 and 19,506 with RAPID mode off and on using a 2.5-inch 500 GB drive.

Guaranteed endurance and reliability

The Samsung 850 EVO maintains high performance and enhanced endurance, and provides a limited warranty of 5 years or 75 to 300 terabytes written (TBW)*. For security, the 850 EVO is equipped with an AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption engine which does not cause any performance degradation and is compliant with advanced security management solutions, such as IEEE® 1667 and TCG™ Opal. Plus, Dynamic Thermal Guard protects it from overheating. * 5 years or TBW (250 GB: 75 TBW; 500 GB/1 TB: 150 TBW; 2/4 TB: 300 TBW), whichever comes first.

Capacities range up to 4 TB

More variety gives you more options that are just right for your needs. Samsung offers the 850 EVO in a full range of capacities up to 4 TB*, - the industry’s first 4 TB SSD for client PCs, which enables you to store more data on a single SSD. * Capacities up to 1TB are offered for mSATA and SATA-based M.2.

Multiple form factors for almost any need

Samsung has designed the 850 EVO in multiple form factors to fit a variety of computers. You may choose among the 2.5-inch size for desktop PCs and laptops, and the SATA-based M.2 or the mSATA for ultra-slim computing applications.
