SAMSUNG PM830 6Gbps 256GB SSD COMPONENTS
News of the day for the PM830 is that it is equipped with four modules of Samsung’s own mlc 20nm-class Toggle DDR NAND flash memory ( K9UHGY8UCB-HCKO) with each module being a massive 64GB in size. Up until today, that was unheard of. This results in a total RAW capacity of 256GB, however, formatting reduces available user capacity to 238GB.
The heart of this SSD is Samsung’s own S4LJ204X01-Y040 3-core ARM controller which sits just above Samsungs 256MB DDR2 SDRAM cache memory (K4T2G3140F-MCF7). The PM830 has AES 256-bit encryption and a write endurance of up to 625TBW for our 256GB sample. Power specifications for the PM830 are Idle – 27mA/0.087W and 911mA/3.007W.
