Samsung Announces High Performance SATA 6GB/s up to 512GB SSDs

/ 8 years ago

Today, Samsung announced the start of volume production for their high performance PM830 Solid State Drives (SSD). The PM830 is Samsung’s first venture into using the SATA 6GB/s interface on their SSDs. The new SATA 6GB/s drives are expected to replace their SATA 3GB/s predecessors by the end of the year.

Sample production of the 512GB drive began in May whereas volume production began earlier this month. The 512GB SSD utilizes Samsung’s most advanced 20 nanometer (nm) class 32Gigabit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND memory chip incorporating the toggle DDR interface. A proprietary NAND controller facilitates exceptional performance levels that take full advantage of the toggle DDR architecture and the SATA 6Gb/s interface. The new SSD doubles the performance of a SATA 3Gb/s drive, with sequential read speeds of 500 (MB/s) and sequential write speeds of 350MB/s.

Samsung’s PM830 SSDs are available in capacities of 512GB, 256GB and 128GB. Premium OEM notebook and tablet users are the targets for these new super fast SSDs.
