It looks like Samsung’s 4TB 860 Pro SSD won’t be the only new drive hitting the market soon. Another update to Samsung’s website has unveiled a full range of 860 EVO SSDs too. The 860 Evo listings were more comprehensive, showing new SATA drives in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities, in addition to new mSATA and M.2 drives.
The listings were swiftly taken down after first making their way online but the details are already out there. The M.2 860 EVO drives will come in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities. All 860 EVO SSDs will come with 64-layer V-NAND, which will have higher endurance compared to the memory used on the 850 EVO series. To back this up, Samsung is introducing a 5-year warranty too.
As for speeds, the 860 EVO drives will offer sequential read/write speeds of 550MB/s and 520MB/s respectively. Up to 97,000 IOPS 4K random read speeds and up to 88,000 IOPS 4K random write speeds.
With all of these accidental listings showing up over the last couple of days, we can expect an official launch soon.
KitGuru Says: While we did get a look at pricing for the 860 Pro 4TB SSD, we didn’t manage to spot prices for the 860 EVO drives. Still, one would hope that they will turn out to be reasonable, though SSD prices in general have been at a high point for several months now. Are any of you currently shopping around for an SSD upgrade?
