New Samsung 860 QVO SSD line-up with up to 4TB storage

Quote:


Samsung Electronics, today unveiled its new consumer solid state drive (SSD) lineup — the Samsung 860 QVO SSD — featuring up to four terabytes (TB) of storage capacity with exceptional speed and reliability. Built on the company’s high-density 4-bit multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash architecture, the 860 QVO makes terabyte capacities more accessible to the masses at approachable price points.

“Today’s consumers are using, producing and storing more high-resolution files than ever, including 4K videos and graphics-intensive games, escalating demand for greater capacities and performance in storage devices,” said Dr. Mike Mang, vice president of Brand Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung continues to lead the move toward multi-terabyte SSDs with the introduction of the Samsung 860 QVO, delivering fast performance, reliability and value to more consumers around the world.”

Mainstream PC users handling large multi-media content often need to upgrade their PC’s storage to improve everyday computing experience. Based on the commonly used SATA interface and 2.5-inch form factor, the 860 QVO fits perfectly in most standard laptops or desktops. Also, by offering both high capacity and performance in a single, affordable drive, the 860 QVO eliminates the need to use a combination of an SSD and an HDD for booting and storage.

Featuring sequential read and write speeds of up to 550 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 520 MB/s, respectively[SUP]1[/SUP], the 860 QVO achieves the same level of performance as today’s 3-bit MLC SSD, thanks to Samsung’s latest 4-bit V-NAND and the proven MJX controller. The drive is also integrated with Intelligent TurboWrite technology[SUP]2[/SUP], which helps to accelerate speeds while maintaining high performance for longer periods of time.

For optimal reliability, Samsung provides a total byte written based on a thorough analysis of consumers’ SSD usage patterns: a three-year limited warranty[SUP]3[/SUP] or up to 1,440 terabytes written (TBW) for the 4TB version, and 720 TBW and 360 TBW for the 2TB and 1TB versions, respectively.

The 860 QVO will be available globally from December 2018, with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $149.99 for the 1TB model. For more information, please visit samsung.com/ssd or samsungssd.com.

I've been following this for a couple of days now. While the QVO's QLC (Quat Level Cell) NAND ('tis curious how Samsung still clings to the original definition of MLC despite everyone else uses TLC and QLC for MLC other than two level) is not going to be a replacement for MLC or TLC for a long time yet, it will help bridge the price gap between spinners and SSDs.

While I'm glad to see Samsung doing this, I would rather they had put that energy into making larger capacity consumer SSDs. The current MJX controller is capable of handling up to 8TB.

Even though these do look like a much cheaper value, I'll still be sticking with spinners for storage for now.

I do use SSDs for the OS drives, but it's just too out of my price range to be buying 4TB SSDs to replace them all on my systems. I can still pick up decent 2TB spinners for £50-60.
