New Samsung 840 PRO & 840 SSD Series:
Quote:
Samsung Electronics announced its new lineup of high-performance SSDs designed for use in personal computers. The new series supporting SATA 6.0 gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) interface comes in two tracks; one for general computing purposes and another, an advanced lineup dubbed ‘PRO’ for serious users.

The new 840 series will be available globally from mid October through retail channels.

I am really pleased by this news. I was planning on getting an 830 at the end of October, as a self-birthday present, but now I will most likely go for the 840 biggrin.gif

Of course. This always happens to me. Something new comes out RIGHT when I buy something. I just bought the Samsung 830 2 weeks ago.

Just picked up a Plextor M5 myself... waiting to see what it is like.
Might have to grab one of these gems as well.

Well yeah the 840 would be for an A10 laptop this spring.

By the way my rig with everything in it has topped out at about 585 watts full throttle on all 6 CPU cores and both GPU cores. So for what it is I'm pretty happy with its efficiency compared to some of the numbers I have seen from other setups running bulldozer.

This is the best info you could get right now.

http://www.pcworld.fr/images/galerie,samsung-ssd-global-summit-2012,371,1250111.htm

Seems like the 840 is gonna be 120/250//500 GB
And 840 PRO is gonna be 128/256/512 GB
The prices are also higher than what the older 830 is priced now...
