Samsung SSD 830 Series ready to rock and roll

When it comes to storage on your notebook or netbook, we tend to see SSDs take priority these days instead of hard drives simply because the cost has started to come down, although dollar-for-gigabyte, the hard drive still wins hands down. Still, that does not detract from the fact that the advantages of an SSD as well as other forms of flash memory are there to experience and enjoy, including not having to worry too much about knocks and shocks, as well as being slimmer and more stable than your standard hard drive.
Samsung decided to release their SSD 830 Series that is said to deliver double the data bandwidth compared to its previous product, the SSD 470, to the masses. This particular SSD will make use of the SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) interface that delivers up to 6Gb/s (Giga bit per second) of data transfer each second, placing this under the self-proclaimed ultra high-speed SSD category by Samsung. Depending on the size of your budget as well as amount of data that you need to store, the Samsung SSD 830 Series will come in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities.

Just to get an idea on how fast the SATA 3.0 connection is, the 6.0Gbps data transfer rate translates to a system boot-up time of a mere 10 seconds, not to mention the peace and quiet that you will get instead of listening to the whirr of a hard drive moving. Not only that, this means you can download five (yes, five!) DVD files in under a minute, how about that for time saving? The Samsung SSD 830 Series is said to deliver the industry’s highest Random Read Speeds of 80,000 IOPS, sporting a 20 nm NAND Flash memory chip embedded within.
This particular chip will incorporate the Toggle DDR and MCX controller, where they will help realize Sequential Read Speed of 520MB/s in all lineups. Since Samsung SSDs are designed and built completely in-house, you can be sure that the cost is kept as low as possible for us consumers. It comes in a black-tone brushed metal enclosure that measures all of 7mm in terms of thickness, whereas the orange colored block that is located in the corner will show off the drive’s capacity.
