We have just received a press release on a new range of mSATA drives from Samsung that fits within their existing Evo 840 performance bracket which should be of interest for anyone looking for a fast, high-capacity small form factor build:

CHERTSEY, UK – December 9, 2013 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in

advanced memory technology, announced today that it launches 840 EVO mSATA (mini-Serial

ATA) Solid State Drive (SSD) line-up, including the industry’s first 1 terabyte (TB) mSATA SSD

this month.

The Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD is an extension of the 840 EVO line-up which was

introduced in July at Samsung SSD Global Summit. The new SSD features the compact mSATA

form factor which is approximately a quarter size of a 2.5-inch SSD, and offers the same level of

high density and high performance.

TurboWrite technology, which the Evo drives have made their name on, is still in with the new mSATA offerings and pricing, we’re told, should be the same as the equivalent 2.5″ Evo drive – so no major mSATA tax. Read and write speeds still remain blazing fast at ~98,000 read ops and ~90,000 write ops along with sequential read speeds of ~540MB/s and sequential write speeds of ~520MB/s.

The drives will be available this month globally.
