Samsung to release 4TB 850 Pro at CES 2017

by on01 December 2016


First 4TB MLC SSD on the market

While it has already announced a 4TB 850 EVO SSD back in July, Samsung is planning to introduce a 4TB version of its 850 Pro SSD at the CES 2017 show in Las Vegas.

If you thought that US $1,499 priced 4TB 850 EVO SSD was cool, you will be impressed to know that Samsung plans to introduce a 4TB version of its flagship 2.5-inch SATA 850 Pro SSD at CES 2017 show in Las Vegas which kicks off on January 5th.

This will also be the first 4TB MLC (2-bits per cell) SSD on the market, which will bring both better performance and more reliability.

Unfortunately, Samsung did not provide any details regarding the actual performance or the price of the new 4TB 850 Pro SSD, but we suspect it will be similar to the 2TB version, featuring MEX controller and sequential transfer speed of up to 550MB/s for read and up to 520MB/s for write with 4K random performance of up to 100,000 and 90,000 IOPS.

Hopefully, we will hear more about it soon.
