In House Review - Samsung SSD 830 Series Solid State Drive

Postby Ian on Tue Mar 13, 2012 3:29 pm

CDRLabs has taken a long overdue look at Samsung's 128GB SSD 830 Series solid state drive. Designed and built completely in-house, the SSD 830 is powered by Samsung's own triple-core MCX controller and features a SATA 6GB/s interface as well as wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms for sustained performance and reliability. The 830 Series also packs 256MB of on-board cache and uses Samsung's 20nm-class Toggle DDR NAND flash memory to deliver up to 520MB/s read and 400MB/s write speeds.
