Samsung to Release 750 EVO in US Market, 4TB Consumer SSDs and More – Storage Visions 2016 Update

In a quick meeting with Samsung today we learned some interesting things coming up in 2016. Other than the release of the Samsung Portable SSD T3 we’ve mentioned here, Samsung aims to expand the release of the 750 EVO to the United States. The Samsung 750 EVO is a value oriented product which has been released in Japan near the end of last year. Unlike its brothers the 850 EVO and Pro, the 750 EVO does not feature Samsung’s 3D V-NAND, rather, it utilizes 16nm planar TLC.  Their goal is to release the 750 EVO by February at prices that compete with the other white box/entry level products out there like the Crucial BX200 (reviewed) and Adata SP550 (reviewed). There will just be two capacities, 120GB and 250GB and they will have 3-year warranties. Therefore, if you are in look for more capacity, you will need to dish out for their 850 EVO or Pro model if you want to stick with Samsung.

However, at the same time they are introducing 48-layer 3D V-NAND into this series. Samsung aims to push out 4TB models of their 850 EVO and 850 Pro later this year. From what we were told the 4TB 850 EVO should be available by the end of the second quarter and the 4TB 850 Pro will be released in the third quarter.

Gamers around the world will be more than thrilled about this, that is, if they haven’t already bought one in a lower capacity. Even so, it is great to see that Samsung will be offering such high capacity SSD storage for those who have the need for it.

Finally, in the enterprise realm, we were told that they would be launching the NVMe PM1725 by the end of the second quarter. To learn more about this drive, please look here.

So, in all 2016 looks like it is going to be great for those of you looking for higher capacity storage.  Stay tuned as we finish up with Storage Visions 2016, as well as beginning our coverage of CES itself and all of the latest technologies on the consumer front.

    Please samsung, make a consumer version of PM951 (maybe call it 950EVO ?).

    Its a great value nvme drive, but sadly it comes with no warranty or support.

    • Billy

      What’s the difference between the PM951 and SM951?

      • Benjamin Hojnik

        Flash and sm951 is a little bit faster.

      • Ben Lamberton

        Write speed on my 256GB PM951 is terrible @ 300MB/s (vs 1500MB/s read). That’s inexcusable, worse than almost any “value” SATA SSDs on the market for write speed. Paid a heck of a premium for NVMe from Dell too. It’s been replaced with a 950 Pro now.

        This is the listed spec… “Sequential Read: Up to 1050 MB/s / Sequential Write: Up to 560 MB/s” My guess is that it came with the system which makes it a Dell reasoning vice any with Samsung. Sorry.

      • Benjamin Hojnik

        And when do you need fast write speed (do you have a second ssd or flash drive that fast) ?

        Also, most 256GB sata drives are slower than that, because they use all kinds of tricks to get that magical 500MB/s writes.
        BX200 (highly popular budget drive) ca only pull around 70MB/s write, when slc cache runs out.

        “Little bit” is quite an understatement. Especially for the 256GB versions, it’s 280 vs 1200 MB/s sequential write lol.

      • Benjamin Hojnik

        I’m sure you’re doing tons of transfers from one fast ssd to another 🙂

      • bviktor

        Because the only way of processing data is copy.

    • bviktor

      No thanks. Get a SanDisk X400 if you need something cheap, it already has a 1TB version and it’s dirt cheap while fairly decent.

    “…value oriented…TLC…white box/entry level…”?

    No thanks.
