V-NAND Technology Maximizes Endurance Under Intensive Workloads
The 850 EVO SSD features Samsung vertical NAND (V-NAND) technology that stacks cell layers on top of one another to increase density, performance, and efficiency while creating a smaller footprint. When compared with the conventional Planar NAND technology over a five-year period, V-NAND technology increases endurance, prolongs lifespan, and is more resistant to wear when under heavy client workloads.
Fast Read/Write Speeds with TurboWrite Technology and RAPID Mode
Using Samsung TurboWrite technology, the 850 EVO creates a high-performance write buffer area that accelerates performance whenever a write operation is underway. To boost performance for up to 2x faster* data processing speeds, you can activate RAPID Mode, a feature that reduces performance bottlenecks by utilizing unused PC memory as cache storage. These features make the 850 EVO ideal for demanding applications such as gaming, graphic and sound design, and data analysis.
Thermal Monitoring and Encryption for Data Security
The 850 EVO uses AES 256-bit hardware-based drive encryption to ensure your data is kept secure from unwanted access. It also features Dynamic Thermal Guard, a technology that automatically throttles the drive’s temperature when it approaches dangerous levels to reduce the risk of overheating.
