SAMSUNG 860 EVO SSD Review 2019
Samsung 860 EVO SSD Capacity and Cache
When it comes to the capacities, it starts at 250 gig and actually goes all the way up to 4 terabytes which is kind of insane. If we talk about differences between 860 EVO and 850 Evo they’re using the new Samsung mjx controller for 860 EVO. Otherwise, in terms of the capacity for cache it has the 250 and 500 gig. Whereas the 1 terabyte I think has a gig, the two terabyte has 2 gig and the 4 terabyte has a four gig cache.
Samsung 860 EVO SSD Speed
When it comes to the speed of the drive they claim this is a 550 and 520 megabit per second read and right respectively. This drive with a maximum of 98 thousand I option depending on what workloads you’re doing. This is still a nice step up from Samsung. But it’s still nice to see and obviously that extra capacity if you’re interested in it.
Samsung 860 EVO SSD Design
In Samsung 860 EVO SSD review 2019 you have the standard SATA data and power connections a standard mounting hardware and obviously the label on the back of all the QR codes. You know barcodes and stuff for your serial number and that’s a thing but otherwise that’s pretty much it for the physical tour of the drive moving.
Samsung 860 EVO SSD Stress Test
For its testing I was using an Intel i7 7700K for the drive. I was using obviously the standard a SATA connector. I was using was a TT of this benchmark AS SSD at Crystal disk mark and my own connection of real world testing which actually tests read and write as simultaneously.
So a little bit of a stress test as with all the synthetic tests you will see slightly different results depending on which program you’re using. The highest numbers we saw were with a TTO where we’re seeing 563 megabytes per second on the reads. Moving forward and let’s check its speed in our Samsung 860 EVO SSD review 2019.
Samsung 860 EVO SSD Data Transfer Speed
We’re thinking about 530 on the rights chrysalis mark was a little bit of behind that was to think about 550 564 reads and about 524 writes which was advertised from Samsung. I think about 500 in reads and write as well it’s still very impressive and still very fast drive.
Samsung 860 EVO SSD Performance
It copied all GTA 5 data which is nowadays about 90 gigabytes kind of insane. So you take those game files and then you duplicate all of them on the same Drive. It means that it’s reading and writing to the same drive.
Normally quite a stress test especially for more mechanical solutions with the SSD though it was doing a pretty decent job running between 200 and 300 megabytes per second. So I’m very impressed with the drives performance.
Samsung 860 EVO Budget
Well if you’re after an SSD which is really nice one to pick especially in affordable budget and has a pretty decent five-year warranty and generally speaking Samsung is pretty decent with general reliability of the drive. So that’s certainly nothing to worry about.
Samsung 860 EVO SSD Ratings
For me this is going to be 4.5/5 money in terms of performance. I think it’s doing a really good job. When it comes to functionality I think 4/5 functionality.
In terms of styling it’s an SSD which does pretty decent jobs. It’s going to be I think a 4.5.
Movie score is going to be a 4.5.
It’s a really impressive drive comes in a decent price and there’s a lot of storage options available for you up to four terabytes. So I definitely recommend it.
