Samsung pulls off a winner
4 Dec, 2013
The easiest and most economical way to breathe new life into an existing computer is to upgrade to an SSD. When boot-up speeds and application load times are slow, people become frustrated with their PCs’ performance. Today, most PC performance woes are the result of slow read and write speeds of the main storage device rather than a lack of CPU performance. Thus, upgrading to a Samsung SSD 840 can breathe new life into your system by enhancing boot-up and application load speeds, and multi-tasking performance.
Don’t waste your time & money buying a new PC. With its simple upgrade solution, Samsung’s SSD 840 SATA III is the single best upgrade for your PC and will deliver a whole new improved PC experience. There is nothing to worry about, because the simple, 3-step process will easily migrate all of your existing data. The improved Magician software makes it convenient to maintain your SSD in peak condition. And Samsung’s SSD 840 is available with a full range of installation accessories for both desktops and laptops. (Installation accessories are offered only in kit models.)
With the Samsung 840, photo editing programs load twice as quickly and video clips render 30% faster than with an HDD. An 840 Series SSD helps you get work done and out to family and friends in no time, leaving you extra time to do more of what you love. Spend less time in front of the computer and more time making memories.
Outstanding Multi Tasking Performance: Windows 8’s intuitive new Metro UI encourages multitasking. Samsung’s 840 Series SSD ensures users will experience great, lag-free performance when working with multiple applications.
Consistently Fast Boot Time: Worn-in Windows installations must manage a plethora of third-party applications, many of which load instructions at start-up. While an HDD will suffer performance deficits over time, the 840 Series industry-leading Random Read Speeds and Latency time ensure that boot times remain fast even after months of heavy OS use and application installations.
From the world’s leading storage engineers at the #1 maker of SSD components, Samsung’s SSD 840 Series delivers rock-solid reliability and sustained high performance over time and under heavy use.
Samsung SSDs are designed completely in-house. To arrive at the perfect solution, Samsung builds all of the main SSD components itself. The result is enhanced performance with Toggle DDR2 NAND flash, lower power consumption with LPDDR2 cache memory, and better energy efficiency with the 3-core MDX controller.
Samsung’s Toggle DDR2 NAND flash chips enable data transfer rates of up to 400 megabits per second (Mbps) - more than three times as fast as previous chips – offering dramatic read speed performance improvements. In addition to performance improvements, the chips also consume less power than competing NAND.
More powerful and energy-efficient, the new Cortex-R4 CPU-based Samsung MDX controller accomplishes more under the same power conditions.
Samsung has made major leaps forward in power efficiency with the 840 Series. It boasts of low idle power consumption of any SSD. In fact, Samsung's new MDX controller consumes only 40 mW of power during idle mode. Further improvements come from the use of LPDDR2 cache memory, which offers higher performance while consuming 30% less power when active and 93% less power when idle than regular DDR2 or DDR3 memory.
Simply enable an HDD password via your computer’s BIOS, and Samsung’s SSD 840 applies data encryption automatically. You can re-purpose your drive or dispose of your data simply by running a Secure Erase through Samsung’s Magician software.
