Consumer electronics player Samsung announced Wednesday that its 840 family of SSDs is available for purchase.
The new family of drives includes the 840 Pro SSD, a high-performance drive for professionals and tech enthusiasts who want better computing performance, and the 840 SSD, for mainstream users who want an affordable upgrade solution for their PC.
For a limited time, the 840 Pro SSDs will also include a code for a downloadable full version of the video game “Assassin’s Creed III,” with purchase of the 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB models.
Samsung’s SSD 840 Pro series drives feature a SATA 6.0 gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) interface, 400 megabits-per-second (Mbps) Toggle DDR2 flash memory, AES 256-bit encryption and new triple-core MDX controllers, which combine to deliver superior performance, high reliability and durability, according to the company.
The company believes that the new 840 Pro drives are the perfect solution for serious gamers and IT professionals seeking the best possible computing performance, along with ultra-low power consumption.
Available now, without the Assassin’s Creed special offer, are Samsung’s new SSD 840 drives. Designed for more cost-conscious consumers who still want good performance, SSD 840 drives offer a SATA 6.0 Gb/s interface and triple-core MDX controller, while using triple-level cell (TLC) Toggle DDR2 flash memory.
“Our new 840 Pro SSDs allow gamers to experience the ultimate in gaming performance by booting their systems quickly, and loading games and other apps in a flash,” said Mike Abary, senior VP, Consumer Business Division IT Product Marketing, Samsung Electronics America.
“We’re excited to offer ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ to gaming fans with the new 840 Pro SSD, which should make for a real improvement in gameplay.”
Published by Ubisoft Entertainment and developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with six other Ubisoft studios, “Assassin’s Creed III” is set against the backdrop of the American Revolutionary War in the late 18th century.
This sequel introduces a new hero, Connor, a Native American voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. “Assassin’s Creed III” takes gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier to bustling colonial towns and the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army in the war for liberty.
