Today let’s take a look at Samsung’s first SSD featuring 3D V-NAND Technology and it’s also the first SSD in the market to have such kind of technology – the Samsung 850 Pro. With the new technology, the 850 Pro is able to reach speeds of up to 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write, and up to 100,000 IOPS and 90,000 IOPS respectively. It’s using a 5th generation 3-core MEX controller which the company used in their 840 EVO SSDs. Compared to all the SSDs I have tried, the 850 Pro is so far the fastest SSD I have used, and most probably the fastest and best SSD as of today. The specific model and capacity I have with me is the Samsung 850 Pro 256GB (MZ-7KE256BW)."
