Samsung teamed up with Ubisoft for the bonus game, which is available when you purchase the 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB SSD from Samsung. Samsung's new 840 Pro SSD is geared for professionals and tech enthusiasts who want the best performance, with the 840 SSD for the mainstream user who would like an affordable, yet fast upgrade for their PC. The higher-end 840 Pro SSD sits on the SATA 6Gbps interface, featuring 400 megabits-per-second (Mbps) Toggle DDR2 flash memory, AES256-bit encryption, and new triple-core MDX controller, while using triple-level cell (TLC) Toggle DDR2 flash memory.

 

The new 840 Pro SSD and 840 SSD sport Samsung's proprietary controllers and firmware, all while spinning in its leading NAND flash memory technology. Samsung, unlike most SSD makers, engineers all of their components in-house. This gives Samsung a one-up on the competition, allowing them to perfect their hardware and software for extreme performance, as well as great reliability.
