We haven't told you all of the reasons yet to be excited about the new Samsung 840 EVO, that'll come in a few days when the embargo for performance lifts. We do have a few tidbits to share with you today though from the SSD Global Summit.
This image shows pricing and the capacity sizes for the new 840 EVO product family. There are three kit options, Basic (bare drive), Laptop Kit and finally a Desktop Kit. There are five capacity sizes, 120GB to 1TB, all of the standard sizes plus a 750GB model tossed in for good measure. The MSRPs are for the US market.
The model everyone wants to talk about is the big 1TB model, costing just under $650. The model most of us will buy though is the 250GB or 500GB at $189.99 and $369.99, respectively. The prices range between the different kit options and not all capacity sizes ship in a kit. We're not sure how Samsung came up with the kit sizes, but for most of us, a bare drive will do just fine.
