500GB Samsung 850 EVO, 2.5" SSD, SATA III 6Gb/s, MGX, 3D V-NAND, 512MB Cache, Read 540MB/s, Write 520MB/s, 98k IOPS
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD
3D V-NAND Flash Memory
3D V-NAND Flash Memory 3D V-NAND is a unique and innovative flash memory architecture from Samsung, it’s advanced enough to overcome the density limitations, performance and endurance of the conventional NAND architecture. In the 850 EVO 500GB SSD the 32 cell layers are stacked vertically over one another; this allows better performance and higher densities due to the smaller footprint.
Maximise Your Everyday Computing
Samsung TurboWrite Technology allows you to achieve the ultimate read / write performance that will maximise your everyday computing, this allows the 850 EVO 500GB to obtain 1.9x faster random write speeds. The 850 EVO SSD delivers top of the class performance in sequential read (540 MB/s) and write (520 MB/s) speeds. Plus, in all QD for client PC usage scenario’s you gain optimised random performance.
Samsung 850 EVO - Rapid mode
2x Faster Processing Speeds
Rapid Mode from Samsung provides 2x faster processing data speeds on a system level by utilising unused PC memory usage (DRAM) as cache storage. The maximum memory usage in Rapid Mode has increased from 1 GB, in the 840 EVO version, up to 4 GB in the 850 EVO when using 16GB of DRAM, another advantage is you get 2x the performance in all random queue depth.
850 EVO Features
Compute Longer with Improved Energy Efficiency
The 850 EVO is now 25% more power efficient than the older 840 EVO during write operations thanks to the 3D V-NAND only consuming half the energy than the 2D V-NAND. The Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD also delivers longer battery life using a controller optimised for 3D V-NAND now enabling device sleep at a highly efficient 2 mW.
Secure Valuable Data Using AES 256 Encryption
The 850 EVO comes fortified with the latest hardware-based full disk encryption engine. The AES 256 encryption-bit security technology secures data without any performance degradation and complies with TCG Opal 2.0. It is also compatible with Microsoft e-drive IEEE1667 so your data is protected at all times for your peace of mind.
Guaranteed Endurance and Reliability
The 850 EVO delivers guaranteed endurance and reliability by doubling the TBW compared to the previous generation 840 EVO backed by an industry leading 5 year warranty. The 850 EVO through minimised performance degradation allows sustained performance improvements of up to 30% over the 840 EVO proving to be one of the most dependable storage devices.
Protected from Overheating - Dynamic Thermal Guard
The 850 EVO's Dynamic Thermal Guard constantly monitors and maintains ideal temperatures for the drive to operate in optimal conditions for the integrity of your data. When temperatures rise above an optimal threshold, the Thermal Guard automatically throttles temperatures down protecting your data while maintaining responsiveness to ensure your computer is always safe from overheating.
Level up to the 850 EVO simply without any hassle
In three simple steps the Samsung’s One-stop Install Navigator software easily allows you to migrate all the data and applications from the existing primary storage to the 850 EVO. The Samsung Magician software also allows you to optimise and manage your system best suited for your SSD.
In-house solution consisting of top-quality components
Samsung is the only SSD brand to design and manufacture all its components in-house allowing complete optimised integration. The result - enhanced performance, lower power consumption with up to 1 GB LPDDR2 DRAM cache memory and improved energy-efficiency with the MEX / MGX controller.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster
