Samsung 870 EVO SSD Series Now Available

Share this:

Samsung previously updated their 860 QVO to 870 QVO SSD series. Today, the company announced an update of their 860 EVO series – the new Samsung 870 EVO SSD. The EVO series, I believe, is the most popular SSD series from Samsung. It sits in between the PRO series and QVO series. The EVO series has always been the “middle” ground between the two. Also, EVO SSDs have a performance similar or near to that of the PRO series; but are priced just a little bit higher than the QVO series. Check out more details below.

Samsung 870 EVO SATA SSD Released

Samsung markets its new 870 EVO for both general and professional use, offering “up to 38% higher performance speeds for everyday computing tasks”. According to Samsung, “the new drive combines best-in-class performance and reliability, making it an ideal storage solution for a wide range of consumers from general PC users to IT professionals in capacities up to four terabytes.”

The Samsung 870 EVO features the company’s latest V-NAND and controller, allowing it to reach the maximum SATA sequential read and write speeds of 560 and 530MB/s, respectively. Using a large variable SLC buffer, the drive’s Intelligent TurboWrite technology helps maintain its peak performance levels.

It also delivers a nearly 38% improvement in random read speed over the previous 860 SSD series. This enables enhanced user experiences when multi-tasking, web browsing or simply booting up PCs. Also, the 870 EVO offers around a 30% improvement in sustained performance over the 860 EVO; as well as a “class-leading” terabytes written (TBW) rating of 2,400TB, or a 5-year limited warranty, for its 4TB model.

The 870 EVO provides broad compatibility with many computing devices thanks to its 2.5-inch SATA interface. Moreover, with its power-saving sleep mode, the 870 EVO is compatible with devices that support Windows 8 and 10’s Standby function, offering added convenience to PC users.
