Samsung has announced the launch of the 2TB 850 PRO and 850 EVO solid state drives.

The new 2TB 850 SSD PRO and EVO drives remain in the same 7-millimeter, 2.5-inch aluminum case as their predecessors did. Equipped with Samsung’s advanced chip solutions, including 128 individual Samsung 32-layer 128Gb 3D V-NAND flash chips, an upgraded high-performance MHX controller that supports 2TB capacity, and four 20nm-class process technology-based 4Gb LPDDR3 DRAM chips, the 2TB 850 family provides industry-leading performance and power efficiency. With added capacity, professionals and consumers can experience a smoother computing environment prepared for the intense demands of rich content such as 4K UHD video editing and viewing.

“Samsung experienced surge in demand for 500 gigabyte (GB) and higher capacity SSDs with the introduction of our V-NAND SSDs. The release of the 2TB SSD is a strong driver into the era of multi-terabyte SSD solutions,” said Un-Soo Kim, Senior Vice President of Branded Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to expand our ultra-high performance and large density SSD product portfolio and provide a new computing experience to users around the globe.”

Samsung guarantees the 2TB 850 PRO for 10 years or 300 terabytes written (TBW), and the 2TB 850 EVO for five years or 150 TBW.

Following the launch of the 2TB 850 drives, Samsung will expand high capacity 3D V-NAND SSD lineups to include mSATA and M.2 form factors to address the gaming PC, laptop PC and high performance SSD markets.

The 2TB 850 Pro will retail for $999.99 and the 2TB 850 EVO will retail for $799.99.

Lol this is a much much faster drive with significantly more storage than any ssd owc offers. nice try isheep...or should I say owc sales dept.

Samsheep, look here, Owc does slightly better than Samsung ever tried to. They haven't revealed any new ssd for the MacBook so there is no relation to the current ssd. People mention their ssd and ram makes their machine take seconds to do rather than minutes.

I take owc any day. Only problem is that when a new apple product comes out and it takes them a year or two to make one for that model. There hasn't been a new one for late 2013 MacBook Pro that I am still waiting for.
