Samsung Smokes Competitors with World’s First 2TB Consumer SSDs

July 7th, 2015 at 9:35 AM
Samsung 2TB SSD Release Date Price

Samsung’s smartphone sales may not be living up to expectations these days, but the company is still a powerhouse for cutting-edge technology. If you want further proof of this, consider that Samsung this week became the first company in the world to offer consumer solid-state drives that come with a whopping 2TB of storage.

Samsung on Monday took the wraps off new 2TB versions of its 850 PRO and 850 EVO SSDs that double the maximum amount of storage available on earlier versions of those products. Even though the new SSDs offer twice the storage of the 1TB models, they have the same physical dimensions and come in a case that’s just 2.5 millimeters thin.

The 850 PRO has 550MBps / 520MBps sequential read/write rates, along with up to 100,000 random I/Os per second (IOPS). The 850 EVO is slightly less powerful, with 540MBps / 520MBps sequential read/write rates and up to 90,000 random IOPS.

As you’d expect with such high-end tech, these SSDs are expensive: The 2TB PRO model will cost $999.99 while the 2TB EVO will cost $799.99. We expect that prices for 2TB SSDs will go down once more competitors enter the market, however. Both SSDs are available right now in 50 different countries.
