Samsung promotes its 830 Series SSD in the South Korean market. Samsung has announced a new SSD series with faster transmission speeds. Available in a 256GB or a 512GB model, the new storage device is claimed to be 2.5 times faster than its predecessor and supports 6Gb/s SATA interface.
For those who don’t remember, the newest SATA interface, known as SATA III, works at up to 6 Gbps, hence why it is usually dubbed SATA 6.0 Gbps. The Samsung 830 Series SSD provides a sequential writing speed of 400MB/s and reading speed of 520MB/s.
Thus sets the bar for SSDs, Samsung once again one step higher. This makes it faster at reading but slower at writing than the Plextor M2P, which was revealed just a couple of days or so ago (and somewhat resembles the 830, design-wise). However, since the moment neither the price nor a release date were mentioned, can only hope that the power can correspond to the paper and the actual performance under normal conditions.
Samsung has confirmed the 830 Series SSD will also come in an upgrade bundle that consists a copy of Norton Ghost, a bracket to install the SSD in a 3.5-inch bay and the necessary cables. As for the design, the company selected a brushed metal case, dark grey in color, with an orange ‘stamp’ on the corner indicating the capacity within.
It now falls to users to decide whether they are interested in this, or one of the other solid state drives out and about, like Kingmax series, which actually reaches 1 TB in capacity.
