Samsung 840 Evo 1TB Solid-State Drive

Samsung has just announced its 840 Evo 1TB solid-state drive (SSD); it can be used in any applications or devices where regular hard drives are used.

the 840 Evo comes in the 7mm-thick, 2.5-inch design and supports the SATA 3 (6Gbps) I/O standard.

Samsung says the 840 Evo uses its compact 10-nanometer class 128GB NAND flash memory, which the company started mass-producing in April, and is equipped with Samsung's proprietary multicore MEX controller.

Depending on the capacities, Samsung claims that the new drive offers between two and three times the speed of the 840 series, offering up to 520MBps sequential write speed and up to 540MBps read speed. In random access, the drive offers up to 98,000 IOPS.

Fans of Hyperion, a terrific 1989 novel by Dan Simmons well recall the Schrön Loop:

The Schrön loop was tiny, no larger than my thumbnail, and very expensive. It held countless field-bubble memories, each capable of holding near infinite bits of information. Schrön loops could not be accessed by the biological carrier and thus were used for courier purposes. A man or woman could carry AIs or complete planetary dataspheres in a Schrön loop.
