Product Overview

Outstanding Performance in Multi-Tasking
Samsung’s fast random read speeds (up to 80,000 IOPS) maximize performance* when it matters most. A Samsung SSD is the ideal solution for your everyday computing needs, such as web browsing, document creation, viewing or editing multimedia files, playing PC games, etc.

Lightning Fast Speed. At Your Command
The 830 Series’ 520MB/s sequential read speed provides lightning fast access to your files, loading large multimedia files quickly and smoothly.

Sustained Performance and Unrivaled Reliability
Samsung SSDs are designed and build completely in-house. The Samsung SSD 830 Series is optimized for exceptional, sustained performance and unrivaled reliability through its specially- engineered wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms.

A Complete, User-Friendly Solution
The Samsung SSD 830 series is available with a user-friendly installation kit, including a full version of Norton Ghost, an interactive installation guide, and premium installation tools for both desktops and laptops.

Toggle DDR NAND Flash
Use the wider image option when adding this feature. We would like to capture all of the data represented on this specific feature image. However, do not use this feature image in this document, use the actual image in images folder. Samsung’s 20-nanometer-class toggle DDR NAND Flash chips enable data transfer rates of up to 133 megabits per second (Mbps)-more than three times faster than conventional (40 Mbps) single-date-rate (SDR) NAND Flash chips.

3-core ARM9-based MCX Controller
While most SSD makers rely on generic, dual-core controllers, Samsung has developed its own proprietary, triple-core MCX controllers that excel in multi-tasking and help to assure stead performance over time. Based on an ARM9 controller, its three CPU cores can execute multiple instructions such reading data, writing data and optimization.

256MB DDR2 DRAM Cache Memory
256MB of DRAM cache memory helps maintain stable random read performance, even if the access range is increased.
