We’ve seen many solid state drives over the past few years, and many have been memorable, and many have been forgettable. But it’s always exciting to see new technologies emerge that push the boundaries of performance, features, and even pricing. New controllers, better memory, improved longevity, and faster performance are the hallmarks of this progression, though lately we haven’t seen many SSDs that have furthered the cause.
We think that may change today as we look at the Samsung 840 EVO SSD. While its grey and black finish is rather plain looking, and its internals don’t look terribly unique, it’s what you can’t physically see that’s absolutely tantalizing.
Samsung is bringing a few new features to the table here with the 840 EVO, but what’s utterly special that we hope pushes those boundaries further ahead, is something new called RAPID Mode. Sounds simple enough, but the performance increases from RAPID are anything but ordinary. In short, RAPID will move you out of the data transfer slow lane and onto the digital Autobahn like you’ve never before experienced.
Buckle up and let’s take a closer look at the Samsung EVO 750GB and see just what this SSD can do.
