Isn't the iPhone Apple's one thin mint?
The 3D NAND revolution starts here. According to reports, Apple has signed a deal with Samsung to use its 3D V-NAND SSDs in future MacBooks, expected some time in 2016. The Korean Times estimates the deal is worth billions of dollars. Instead of having a single 2D or planar layer (as most current MLC flash dies do) 3D NAND …
I've got a Macbook Pro with an EVO 840 in it. Yosemite doesn't allow TRIM to be activated as it's "not a supported drive". This could be hacked under Mavericks, but kernel signing has put paid to that...
Probably silly to think they'll make it work with the 840 in future?
Please correct your info. The 850 EVO (TLC) comes with 5 year warranty and 75TB rating.
I believe its the 850 Pro (MLC) which has the 10 year warranty (and 150 TB rating + also uses 3D NAND). Impressive either way imo.
FYI, the 840 Pro was declared the winner of an 18 month long SSD endurance test by TechReport where it managed to achieve 2.5 Petabytes of writes before dying, despite being rated for 100TB (5 year warranty).
The 850 Pro is thought to be even more durable given that Samsung has increased its warranty and rating to 10 years and 150TB. Hopefully someone (with money to burn) will test its endurance accordingly.
I don't consider myself a "heavy" user of my laptop (compared to some folks I know anyway), it is my daily driver.. Samsung's app says about 5.9TB of data written since my 850 Pro was installed in late August 2014 I want to say. I know there's a way to get this in linux(where I spend 98% of the time booted to), but forgot what tool off hand. Good to know that even at this level wear wise I have a long way left to go.
