Samsung Announces 840 EVO 1TB mSATA SSD Capable of RAPID Speeds to 1GB/s

Higher performance and capacities in a smaller SSD form factor is something many of us dream of when considering the advance of this amazing technology and this morning Samsung has tackled just that.  Building on their ever popular Samsung 840 EVO Series, Samsung has just announced a new 840 EVO mSATA, fully capable of their RAPID Technology, which means that it will be fully capable of reaching read and write performance up to 1GB/s with RAPID enabled.

Samsung-Introduces-Industry’s-First-1-Terabyte-mSATA-SSD_01Without RAPID enabled, performance will still be restricted to that of 540MB/s read and 520MB/s write with up to 98,000 IOPS, but the beauty of RAPID is that it is totally free and a very simple setup with the latest version of the Samsung Magician software.  Even better news with respect to the softwares latest update is that RAPID is 100% compatible with Samsung 840 Pro SSDs, solid state drives that are easily the most powerful flash devices on the market right now.  Perhaps the news of performance isn’t quite as amazing as that of how they are able to get 1TB of storage space on a SSD not 1/3 the size of a credit card and 7 grams.

The 840 EVO mSATA SSD uses Samsung’s newest 128Gb NAND flash memory which, as they state, is based in the 10nm memory class (it is 19nm).  In order to be able to create a 1TB 840 EVO mSATA SSD, Samsung had to cram 16 layers of 128Gb chips onto each of the four 256GB modules and this is something we have never seen prior.  In fact, considering what Samsung is doing here, they could EASILY create a typical 4TB notebook drive using 16 of these memory modules.  Can you imagine!?!?!?

The new 840 EVO mSATA SSD utilizes Samsung’s advanced 128 gigabit (Gb) NAND flash memory based on 10 nanometer class* process technology. To form a 1TB version SSD, a total of four flash memory packages are used, each package having 16 layers of 128Gb chips. Based on the advanced memory technology, the 1TB mSATA SSD comes in a thickness of 3.85 millimeters and a weight of 8.5 grams, which are approximately 40 percent and a twelfth of a typical hard disk drive (HDD) respectively. – See more at: http://global.samsungtomorrow.com/?p=31060#sthash.GmuQRX23.dpuf

    That’s some crazy density for sure. Must be nice to own the fab…lol Looks great as long as they don’t try sticking them in smaller drives to save money (and kill performance by not populating all channels).
