Speeds are more consistent, even with heavy workloads and multi-tasks. The 860 EVO performs at sequential writes up to 520 MB/s* with Intelligent TurboWrite technology, and sequential reads up to 550 MB/s. The TurboWrite buffer size* is upgraded from 12 GB to 78 GB for faster file transfer.
* Performance may vary based on SSD’s firmware version and system hardware & configuration. Sequential write performance measurements are based on Intelligent TurboWrite technology. Sequential performance measurements based on CrystalDiskMark v.5.0.2 and IOmeter 1.1.0. The sequential write performances after Intelligent TurboWrite region are 300 MB/s for 250/500 GB and 500 MB/s for 1 TB. * Test system configuration: Intel Core i5-3550 CPU @ 3.3 GHz, DDR3 1333 MHz 4 GB, OS – Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Chipset: ASUS P8H77-V * The TurboWrite buffer size varies based on the capacity of the SSD‡ 12 GB for 250 GB model, 22 GB for 500 GB model, 42 GB for 1 TB model and 78 GB for 2/4 TB.

Solid State Drive [SSD] offers lightning speed for your PC to boot up and run applications compared to the traditional Hard disks. While your processor can handle billions of cycles per second, it spends a lot of time waiting for your drive to feed data. Hard drives are particularly sluggish because they have moving parts and platters that have to spin up. To get optimal performance, you need a good SSD. We are here to provide the knowledge you need to make an informed purchasing decision.
Here are the facts you need to take into account while purchasing a SSD:
Find out if you have slots for M.2 drives on your motherboard and room in the chassis. If not, you may need a 2.5-inch drive instead.
Make sure you trust the quality of the manufacturer if you plan to use the SSD for the long term. The quality of the manufacturer will be reflected in how the wear patterns of the SSD are managed as well as the possibility of whether or not you get a warning before your SSD dies.
Most SSDs range from 120 GB to 2 TB. 120 GB drives are the cheapest but adequately capable of handling operating system and productivity applications. It costs a little extra to step up from 120 to 250 GB but the money is well spent in terms of performance. 500GB is the sweet spot between price, performance, and capacity for most users – particularly if you don't have the budget for a 1TB model.
Remember that high-end drives, while technically faster, won’t often feel speedier than less-speedy options in common tasks.
So unless you’re chasing extreme speed for professional or enthusiast reasons, it’s often best to choose an affordable mainstream drive that has the capacity you need at a price you can afford.
