Samsung’s Upcoming EVO 850 1TB SSD Listed
Bohs Hansen / 3 years ago
It has been known for a while now that Samsung was getting ready to release their new SSD 850 EVO. Recent rumours and voices from the industry had suggested a November launch and those rumour seem to have been right on the money. A member over at the EVGA forums was first to discover and post the news that displayed the 850 EVO 1TB drive costing $499.99 at frys.com with an estimated shipping date of November the 3rd.
The date has been changed to November the 24th since the initial post, most likely due to the media picking up on it and Samsung sending a nice little notice to the shop. The 3rd is most likely the day resellers and distributors will start to get their stock in and the 24th will be the official release date. Samsung might want to make sure that there is sufficient stock everywhere upon launch. The new SSD 850 EVO is both highly anticipated and the release matches well with the shopping frenzy called Black Friday.
The listing also reveals speeds of 550 MB/s reading and 520MB/s writing by using the V-NAND/3D NAND type memory.
Thanks to EVGA forums for providing us with this information
