Samsung's 840/850 EVO SSDs have hardware full disk encryption feature, however the stock disk management app (Magician) only mentions BitLocker's support.
Encrypted Drive feature provided by BitLocker® Drive Encryption in Windows® 8 and Windows Server® 2012.
As user of Windows 10 Home I am not able to use this feature (BitLocker is available only in Pro / Ultimate versions of Windows). While looking for an alternative I came across DiskCryptor (TrueCrypt doesn't seem too reliable now). The website mentions support for hardware AES acceleration, but only on CPU side(?):
Support for hardware AES acceleration: AES New Instructions set on recent Intel and AMD CPUs; PadLock extensions on VIA processors.
Will DiskCryptor benefit from EVO's hardware encryption feature? If not, are there another BitLocker and TrueCrypt alternatives that would make use of it?
I am only interested in FDE using disk hardware solutions. Engaging CPU power in my case isn't worth it.
