Samsung 870 EVO SATA SSD promises 560 MB / s sequential read and 530 MB / s sequential write performance.
The newest member of the 800 EVO series SSD family was unveiled by Samsung. While the 870 EVO SATA SSD offers a more modest upgrade than its predecessors, speed comes first. So, how are the Samsung 870 EVO SATA SSD features? Let’s take a closer look if you want.
Samsung 870 EVO SATA SSD Specifications
Samsung 870 EVO uses the latest V-NAND flash memory and controller. In this way, it can reach speeds that push the limits of SATA 6Gbps connection by offering 560 MB / s sequential read and 530 MB / s sequential write performance.
The company also says its random read performance is up to 38 percent faster on QD1 readings compared to the 860 EVO. On the other hand, the spec list doesn’t actually show the performance of QD1 readings on the new drive. QD32 read and write compared to the previous generation, the 870 EVO actually looks a bit slower with similar reads, but 88,000 IOPS for write is just under the 90,000 IOPS of the 860 EVO.
It is shared that the 870 EVO has achieved an increase of up to 30 percent in sustainable performance compared to the previous model. Although the drive uses TLC memory, it also features Samsung TurboWrite technology to help maintain peak performance using an SLC buffer. Samsung promises a “class-leading” longevity of up to 2,400 TBW in its top model with 4 TB capacity.
