The CES Innovation Award Honoree is one of 35 products by Samsung to have won the award.

Samsung has promised to reveal its cutting edge technology SSD at the upcoming CES 2017 in Las Vegas. The new and interesting 850 Pro solid state drive (SSD) by Samsung has a capacity going more than four terabytes.

At CES2017, we expect to see a number of new hardware and software but now we know Samsung will show us one of the really innovative products.

The 850 Pro SSD has also won one of the 35 CES Innovation Awards given to Samsung this year. According to Samsung the 850 Pro is the professional counterpart to the 850 EVO. Although the 850 Pro is similar to the 850 EVO in many ways it has better endurance and improved long-term performance for a SSD.

But the biggest quality of the 850 Pro is its 4TB size, which basically means its owner is unlikely to run out of space.

According to Samsung the 850 Pro with 4TB SSD is also the first ever 2-bit MLC consumer drive, meaning the common man has never held so much of storage before. Even though professionals and enterprises will be more likely to buy the SSD, an everyday man will also be able to get his hands on this tech.

In addition the 850 Pro SSD also reduces the power draw required to store material compared to existing traditional hard drives, according to DigitalTrends.

The 850 pro is not the only SSD by Samsung to have been awarded with the CES Innovation Award, the 960 PRO SSD, thePM971 512GB, and the BGA NVMe SSD also won. However these other SSDs only have a 2TB capacity, but they feature the M.2 form factor which gives them ultra high-end performance in an SSD package.
