The Samsung SSD 860 EVO is the newest of Samsung's Client-PC SATA SSDs, specially designed for mainstream desktops and laptops. Building on the reputation of the Samsung SSD 850 EVO, the world's first line of consumer SSDs with V-NAND 3bit MLC technology, the new Samsung SSD 860 EVO drives achieve industry-leading performance for SATA SSDs, offering improvements in speed, reliability, compatibility and capacity. The 860 EVO comes equipped with Samsung's newly designed MJX controller along with the latest V-NAND architecture.
The legacy Serial-ATA (SATA) interface faces the theoretical bandwidth limitation of 600MB/s which many SSD manufacturers have tried to reach over the years. Among them, Samsung, which first brought V-NAND technology to the market, continuously strives to improve product reliability and performance, even with the SATA interface limitations. Powered by Samsung's latest V-NAND technology, the 860 EVO delivers top-notch sequential read (up to 550 MB/s) and write (up to 520 MB/s) speeds and along with high sustainable performance for everyday computing experiences.
