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.

Toggle DDR NAND Flash

Use the wider image option when adding this feature. We would like to capture all of the data represented on this specific feature image. However, do not use this feature image in this document, use the actual image in images folder. 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 (40 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 stead performance over time. Based on an ARM9 controller, its three CPU cores can execute multiple instructions such reading data, writing data and optimization. (samsung.com)
