Review: Samsung SSD 860 EVO M.2 (2280) SATA3 500GB [MZ-N6E500BW]

Samsung 860 EVO is the world’s best-selling SATA SSD. Specially designed for mainstream PCs and laptops, using V-NAND technology and a reliable controller with a streamlined algorithm, this drive is a very fast SSD for everyday tasks.

The EVO series uses 3-bit flash memory per cell (TLC), but it reserves 2.3% of the NAND capacity for background operations and caching. This helps offset the poor write performance of the TLC memory.

Samsung has equipped the 860 series SSD with a new MJX controller that supports low-power DDR4 memory, so it probably has a new built-in memory controller. Most likely, the company managed to create an MJX controller based on a smaller lithography, which ensures lower power consumption, cooler operation and lower production costs.

Samsung approves that its fourth-generation 64-layer V-NAND consumes 30% more power than its 48-layer predecessor. Samsung has taken a big step forward by lowering the input voltage from 3.3 V to just 2.5 Volts. It also allowed to reduce the data access speed to 500 microseconds, which is 1.5 times faster than in the previous generation.

The 860 Series supports hardware encryption using Opal TCG and Microsoft eDrive.

The 860 EVO has excellent endurance and reliability. If there weren’t a new 860 Pro that provides double endurance rating, the 860 EVO would become the market leader in solid state drives with 150 TB endurance for recording for every 250 GB of used capacity. SSDs are still covered by the standard five-year warranty.

Review: Intel Core i5-9600K Coffee Lake Refresh tray [CM8068403874404]

The Core i5-9600K is the cheapest Intel desktop processor in the Coffee Lake Refresh family. It has only six, not eight processing cores, but it is 30-40% cheaper than the younger eight core model Core i7-9700K.

The six cores of the processor have a very interesting story – the processor emerged as a result of the implementation of chips that were a marriage in the production of older Coffee Lake Refresh. That is, the basis of the processor is the same as that of the more expensive versions of the Core i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K, but two of the eight cores were deactivated.

In addition to the crystals from the eight-core counterparts with an area of ​​174 mm2, the Core i5-9600K has a lot more in common with the i9-9900K and Core i7-9700K models. For example, here is the first hardware patch package against the vulnerabilities Meltdown and L1TF (Foreshadow), the memory controller of this processor is certified to support 128 GB DDR4 SDRAM.

Core i5-9600K is produced according to the most modern version of Intel’s 14-nm process technology and has an unlocked multiplier, which allows it to be overclocked. The processor is equipped with an integrated graphics core UHD Graphics 630.

The processor is compatible with any LGA1151v2-motherboards built using Intel chipsets with numbers from the fourth hundred.
