Multitaskers rejoice. Lag-free performance in multitasking.
Samsung's fast random read speeds (up to 80000 IOPS) maximise performance when it matters most. A Samsung SSD is the ideal solution for your everyday computing needs, such as web browsing, document creation, viewing or editing multimedia files, playing PC games, etc.

Lightning fast speed. At your command.
The 830 Series' 520MB/s sequential read speed provides lightning fast access to your files, loading large multimedia files quickly and smoothly.

The most reliable SSD. Without compromising performance.

Samsung SSDs are designed and built completely in-house. The Samsung SSD 830 Series is optimised for exceptional, sustained performance and unrivaled reliability through its specially-engineered wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms.

Toggle DDR NAND Flash
Samsung's 20-nanometer-class toggle DDR NAND Flash chips enable data transfer rates of up to 133 megabits per second (Mbps)-more than three times faster than conventional (66 Mbps) single-date-rate (SDR) NAND Flash chips.

3-core ARM9-based MCX Controller
While most SSD makers rely on generic, dual-core controllers, Samsung has developed its own proprietary, triple-core MCX controllers that excel in multi-tasking and help to assure steady performance over time.
Based on an ARM9 controller, its three CPU cores can execute multiple instructions at once - allowing, for example, one to be used for reading data, one for writing data, and another for optimisation.

256MB DDR2 DRAM Cache Memory
256MB of DRAM cache memory helps maintain stable random read performance, even if the access range is increased.

Magician software for sustained peak performance.
Samsung's Magician Software makes it easy for you to maintain your SSD at its peak condition, giving you consistently great performance and reliability throughout the life of your laptop.

A complete, user-friendly solution.
The Samsung SSD 830 series is available with a user-friendly installation kit, including a full version of Norton Ghost, an interactive installation guide, and premium installation tools for both desktops and laptops.
