Samsung is one of the largest technology companies in the world. They make pretty much every electronic product you can think of.
Being a leader in DRAM and flash memory production, it comes as no surprise that they are also a player in the SSD business. They are actually one of the biggest players in terms of volume because their drives are used in Sony and Apple products.
Their Samsung 830 Series SSD is not based on the very common SandForce or Marvell controllers. The company uses their own design called S4LJ204X01. This controller is based on a triple core ARM processor, similar to what you have in your smartphone. The flash chips and controller DRAM are also produced by Samsung which means the company has full control over every component in their drive, certainly a unique situation.
The Samsung 830 Series drive is available in capacities of 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB.
