[RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. = Whowired] June 06, 2012 -- Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, announced today that its SSD 830 Series advanced internal solid state drives (SSDs) will include a downloadable version of the highly anticipated game Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier™ with purchase of the 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB models (while supplies last) in the U.S. and Canada.
For a limited time, consumers that purchase those drives will find a code inside the box to enable a download of the full PC version of the newly released game from Ubisoft* (see URL for terms and conditions).
Samsung 830 Series SSDs incorporate a high-performance Serial ATA Revision 3.0 interface, which provides twice the data bandwidth of previous-generation interfaces. The drives are an ideal option for users who want to upgrade their computing experience without purchasing an entirely new PC, or for anyone building a system and wanting maximum performance.
“Our 830 Series SSDs allow gamers to boot their systems far more quickly, load games or other apps in a flash, and enjoy a remarkably fast-paced gaming experience,” explained Reid Sullivan, Senior Vice President, Mobile Entertainment, Samsung Electronics America. “We’re excited to offer gaming fans the new Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier game, which provides a great opportunity to showcase the capabilities of our 830 Series SSDs.”
“For more than a decade, our critically acclaimed Ghost Recon franchise has set the standard for high-definition gaming. We expect gamers that enter the world of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier using a Samsung 830 Series SSD will experience a performance boost that will mark a real difference in gameplay,” said Adrian Lacey, IP development director at Ubisoft Studios France.
Published by Ubisoft Entertainment, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier enlists players as members of an elite U.S. Special Forces team, better known by their battlefield name – the Ghosts – as they track down high-value targets in high-risk areas of conflict. As Ghosts, players and their Ghost squad are deployed all around the planet to fight secret wars. Fighting from the shadows, away from cameras and known front lines, they need all the training, talent and hi-tech equipment they can get to protect their country from clear and present danger.
The perfect complement for this amazing game, Samsung’s high-performance 830 Series SSDs combine lightning fast performance (including random read speeds up to 80,000 input/output operations per second) with Samsung’s legendary reliability in a stylish, deep black brushed metal enclosure. Samsung, unique among SSD manufacturers, engineers all of its components in-house. This allows it to meticulously fine-tune its hardware and software for enhanced reliability. In addition, the included Samsung’s SSD Magician 3.0 software helps users to manage their SSDs and keep them running at their peak.
SSDs use flash memory for data storage rather than the spinning platters found in conventional hard disk drives. This results in much faster performance, lower energy consumption, reduced heat output and improved reliability without risk of a hard drive crash.
Samsung's desktop and notebook upgrade packages make installing your new SSD deliver a safe and easy experience. The included Norton Ghost software eliminates the need to reinstall applications, manually move data and reconfigure user settings, reducing the time it takes to upgrade to an SSD by up to 75 percent. The desktop bundle includes a bracket for installing the 2.5" drive in a 3.5" bay, all required cables, and detailed instructions. Notebook upgrade kits also include a USB to SATA adapter cable.
Samsung SSD 830 Series drives are available at major retail and online outlets in capacities of 64*, 128, 256 and 512 gigabytes (GB).**
*64GB SSDs are not eligible for this offer. Game promotion is available on 128GB and larger drives.
