The 240GB Sandisk Extreme Pro uses the same controller and NAND as its 13 months younger predecessor, the Extreme II. Comparing the Extreme II and Extreme Pro shows that average performance has increased by 10% but peak performance remains broadly unchanged. The Pro features an improved nCache which uses an SLC buffer to cache writes prior to writing them to the slower MLC NAND. In order to benefit from this improved caching, huge amounts of data need to be written for extended periods, an unlikely consumer scenario. Comparing core performance between the Samsung 840 Evo and Extreme Pro shows that the Extreme Pro averages around 12% faster than the Evo. The Extreme Pro also has a 10 year warranty but I wonder if SATA 3 will even be around at that time. Although the Extreme Pro has a superb performance profile it's not a game changer. [Jun '14 SSDrivePro]

The 860 Evo is the latest mainstream SATA SSD from Samsung. The 2.5-inch version of the 860 Evo will be available in several capacities ranging from 250 GB to a staggering 4TB. It’s also available in the slimmer M.2 and mSATA form factors. The 860 Evo demonstrates marginally reduced performance compared to its popular, but now three year old predecessor, the 850 Evo. In a head to head comparison the 860 looses by a very modest 6% in terms of effective speed. The 860 Evo is based on a refinement of Samsung’s consumer grade TLC V-NAND, this time featuring 256Gb and 512 Gb 64 layer V-NAND and it also features a new "MJX" controller. The 250 GB version can reach sequential write speeds of up to 520 MB/s, dropping to 300 MB/s once the SLC cache is exhausted (the 250 GB version has a 12 GB SLC write cache). Peak sequential read speeds of 560 MB/s are achievable across the different capacities. The 250GB version has a 512 MB LPDDR4 DRAM cache. All capacities have a five year warranty, but as a testament to the enhanced reliability of this new technology, the warrantied terabytes written (TBW) has doubled from 75 TBW to 150 TBW for the 250 GB 860 Evo. [Jan '18 SSDrivePro]
