Comprehensive new July update for Windows 10 and Samsung 4TB SSD for Consumers
Microsoft yesterday released its new security 10586.494 cumulative update for Windows 10. It corrects both security concerns and more general problems. It follows the publication of the July reports, fixes are available for all supported Windows. As always, patches were released on Windows Update for operating systems that receive support. In all, eleven bulletins are available, half of which are critical. However, of these, two relate Flash Player that is, to reiterate, directly integrated into Internet Explorer 10 and 11, and in Edge.

These patches are mostly available from Vista Service Pack 2. In Windows 10, they result in a new cumulative update. As a reminder, the latest Windows does not retrieve patches separated according to correct problems. Instead, it downloads in only complemented month after month. Those update therefore get the delta, while machines with no Internet connection for months will download a larger file.
The new cumulative update is stamped 10586.494, 10586 designating the last major change in the system last November that (called "1511"). In addition to the sealed gaps, it improves the reliability of certain components like Media Player, Internet Explorer 11, the Miracast support, Explorer or the kernel itself. Additional bugs were eradicated in Windows Update, authentication, support for PDF, Bluetooth management, or Edge network and Wi-Fi connections.
Several specific problems have also been fixed. A computer or tablet could for example display a black screen after exiting connected before. More annoying still, local accounts (ie without connection to a Microsoft Online account) does not lock, in sometimes after a number of authentication attempts.
Also note that the Mobile version of the system 10 is also updated with some specific fixes. For example, the process of migrating a Windows Phone to Windows 10 "lost" sometimes the authentication certificates. Support for backup settings in third-party applications is also improved.
Finally, those who have not completed the update of November and are still on the Windows RTM branch 10 (10240) also have an update to recover. We find security flaws corrected, some other common concerns to 10586.494, and some others, such as NTFS, which can in some cases create errors when restarting the machine. A bug sometimes prevented drivers to install, and support for USB 3.0 is improved when installing a CD / DVD player in SCSI.
Just as usual to open Windows Update to get all the patches, regardless of the Windows version. However, those who use the prerelease program Insider have however no updates. A build 14388 is also published yesterday in the Fast Ring, with 44 new corrections along the way. Remember that these prerelease allow testing the Anniversary Update, the final version will be released on 2 August. A new draft of the SDK is also available, some minor bugs have been fixed (no change in the API).
Samsung 850 EVO SSD with a capacity of 4 TB Released for public use
850 EVO SSD with a storage capacity of 2 TB and 4 are offered to the public by Samsung. The 2 TB model is already available at Amazon at 700USD and 4 TB version will soon make its entry for the price of 1500USD. These discs have the distinction of integrating memory chips 3D V-NAND, which are composed of different layers and interconnect them. The disc includes 32 stacked vertically, hence the name V-for Vertical Nand. The South Korean giant offers V-chip Nand TLC that no longer have two bits per cell but three. A solution to reduce cost and to save space. The advantage of this layering is to obtain better storage density with the same fine engraving and lower efficiency losses due to the fine prints. The read speeds are 540 MB / s and a maximum writing can reach up to 520 MB / s. The SSD can climb up to 98,000 input / outputs per second random read and 90,000 IOPS write random, for models 500 and 1000 GB.
The SSD 850 EVO 4 TB was created using the V-NAND technology, allowing to have a flash memory engraved in 3D and to benefit from 32GB per DIMM, double the previous generation. This SSD uses a Samsung MGX controller, a SATA III interface, memory type DDR3 cache. Based on a SATA III 6Gb / s interface, the SSD 850 Pro embark meanwhile, a controller MEX three hearts from Samsung.
