Samsung 840 SSD

Samsung didn't provide comparable figures for the regular 840, but Samsung's current SSD range-topper, the 830 series, has claimed random writes IOPS of 80,000 - a 12.5 per cent increase for the new line.

Samsung said the gain was due to the new MDX controller fitted to the drive.

The new 840 series will be available in retail globally from the middle of October. Samsung did not provide prices. ®
