The 256GB Samsung 850 Pro is the fastest consumer SSD we have seen to date.Samsung 850 Pro Series 256GB 2.5 inch SATA3 Solid State Drive, Retail (3D V-NAND)The World’s First Consumer SSD Powered by Samsung V-NAND Technology, Ideal for Hardcore PC Gamers, Heavy PC Users, Business Professional.
The Samsung SSD 850 PRO comes with a whopping 10 year warranty and is designed to write up to 40GB per day. With performance of its SATA-based Solid State Drives (SSDs) reaching a plateau, Samsung has turned its attention to drive endurance.
The 850 PRO is Samsung’s first ‘pro’ grade SSD to support ‘RAPID’ (Real-time Accelerated Processing of I/O Data) mode at time of launch. This software utility helps boost performance by using your workstation’s system memory (rather than your SSD) to serve up frequently used data.
The Samsung 850 PRO SSD redefines storage with the world’s first drive based on 3D VNAND flash, offering exceptional read/write performance, reliability and power management efficiency. The 850 Pro delivers up to 2x the speed, density and endurance of conventional flash.

Ultimate Read/Write Performance
Samsung’s 850 PRO, the world’s first 32 layer 3D V-NAND, provides up to 100K IOPS Random Read Speed and 470 MB/s Sequential Write speed and the option of enabling Samsung RAPID mode, which can kick up to even higher speeds. With up to 2x the speed and density of conventional 2D flash, you get the most speed available for gaming and real world performance.
Enhanced Endurance and Reliability
With an industry-leading 10 year, 150 TBW warranty, the 850 PRO offers unbeatable reliability. When combined with the 850 PRO’s 256-bit AES Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology, you can rely on your files being secure and available whenever you need them.
Efficient Power Management
Featuring a 4th generation MEX Controller, the 850 PRO offers one of the most energy-efficient drives on the market, using up to 50% less power than traditional hard drives. It has the lowest active write power consumption and supports device sleep mode, which lowers power consumption to under 2mW.
Dynamic Thermal Guard Protection
The 850 PRO includes Dynamic Thermal Guard protection, which sustains performance while minimizing the risk of overheating. This feature monitors and maintains the drive's optimal operating temperature with a throttle feature that automatically drops the SSD's temperature to protect your data while ensuring the responsiveness you expect.
End-to-end Integration Solution
The Samsung 850 PRO uses 100% Samsung designed and manufactured components. Because Samsung has intimate knowledge of every component and its parts, it can fine-tune them at each stage of development to ensure they work perfectly together. The result – enhanced performance, lower power consumption with the Samsung LPDDR2 DRAM cache memory and improved energy-efficiency with the Samsung 3-core MEX controller.
