Samsung has yet to release the official pricing for the under production drives, but its 4TB 860 Evo is currently being sold over $1,000. If compared, you can get the 4TB mechanical drive for 100$.

The new SSDs are the first to use 4-bit quad-level cell (QLC) technology and the 4TB version uses a total of 32 128GB chips. Performance is on a par with the older 850 Evo drives at a 540MB/s read speed and 520MB/s write.

Samsung says its new technology avoids the problem of memory cell increasing from three bit to four, which would reduce its efficiancy by half to 50 percent.

Samsung also plans to intrduce 1TB, 2TB and 4TB SSDs later in 2018 in the laptop firendly 2.3-inch form factor. The company will also offer M.2 NVMe SSDs for enterprise this year.

Samsung says it also hopes to use the technology to produce 128GB memory cards for smartphones.
