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]

The Intel Optane SSD 900P series are the first consumer grade NVMe PCIe SSDs available using Optane memory. This is a new class of memory based on new 3D XPoint lithography. The 280 GB version is available in either a U.2 15mm or half height half length add-in card form, both with a PCIe 3.0 x 4 interface. A 480 GB version is also available. The impressive benchmarks from this SSD (sequential read speeds of 2500 MB/s and sequential write of 2000 MB/s) are consistent with Intel’s reported specifications. The 280GB 900P is about 10% faster at sequential read/write than the next best NVMe PCIe flash based SSD, the Samsung 960 Pro. However, the 280 GB 900P really excels at random 4K reads and writes. Specifically, it is about 4 times faster than the 960 Pro at random 4K reads. Since on average, about 50% of typical consumer disk access is sequential reads or writes, the full benefits of the 280GB 900P may not be relevant for all users. Early access to this new technology comes at a premium, the 280GB 900P costs approximately twice as much per gigabyte compared to the 960 Pro. These drawbacks will no doubt influence the mass adoption of this class of memory in its infant stage. However, it is no less exciting for the industry and is indicative of the speeds that we can expect to achieve as standard in the future. [Nov '17 SSDrivePro]
