Samsung, the global leaders in Memory technology, today unveiled its new consumer solid state drive (SSD) lineup — the Samsung 860 QVO SSD — featuring up to four terabytes (TB) of storage capacity with exceptional speed and reliability. Built on the company’s high-density 4-bit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash architecture, the 860 QVO makes terabyte capacities more accessible to the masses at approachable price points.
“There is a rise in demand for higher capacities and greater performance when it comes to storage devices as consumers, today, are producing, sharing and using more high resolution files, which include graphic intensive games and 4K videos,” said Sukesh Jain, Senior Vice President, IT and Mobile Enterprise Business, Samsung India.
“Samsung continues to lead the move toward multi-terabyte SSDs with the introduction of Samsung 860 QVO, delivering fast performance, exceptional speed, reliability and value to more consumers around the world,” he added.
Mainstream PC users handling large multi-media content often need to upgrade their PC’s storage to improve everyday computing experience. The 860 QVO fits perfectly into most standard laptops or desktops as it is based on the commonly used SATA interface and 2.5-inch form factor. Also, by offering both high capacity and performance in a single affordable drive, the 860 QVO eliminates the need for the use of a combination of SSD and an HDD for booting and storage.
Featuring sequential read and write speeds of up to 550 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 520 MB/s, respectively, the 860 QVO achieves the same level of performance as today’s 3-bit MLC SSD, thanks to Samsung’s latest 4-bit V-NAND and the proven MJX controller. The drive is also integrated with Intelligent TurboWrite technology, which helps to accelerate speeds while maintaining high performance for longer periods of time.
For optimal reliability, Samsung provides a total byte written based on a thorough analysis of consumers’ SSD usage patterns: a three-year limited warranty or up to 1,440 terabytes written (TBW) for the 4TB version, and 720 TBW and 360 TBW for the 2TB and 1TB versions, respectively.
The 860 QVO will be available in India from Jan 2019, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at Rs. 11,249 for the 1TB model, Rs. 18,749 for 2TB Model and Rs. 37,499 for 4 TB model.
