Thanks for the comments, and yep I like the 830 a lot, and it is very fast in the real world.
Yep, I hope to be able to get hold of the 840 soon after launch, which is expected to be mid October.
Since the 830 review sample was actually a laptop kit, I decided to fit it to an Asus laptop which I reviewed at the beginning of the year.
- Processor: Intel Sandy Bridge i5 2430M clocked at 2.4GHz (2 core with HT technology)
- Turbo 2 frequency: Up to 3GHz
- Chipset: Intel Mobile Express HM65
- RAM: 6GB of 1333MHz DDR3
For the tests the Samsung 830 was also the system, in fact it was the only drive in the system.
The results are below.
Note: Ignore the typo's in the screenshots. The chipset was Intel HM65, not H67 as seen in the screenshots.
