Samsung today expanded its Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) SSD portfolio with the latest addition: Samsung 970 EVO Plus. In what could be a highlight of Samsung 970 EVO Plus, it supports up to 2TB of storage capacity.
Samsung integrates their V-NAND chips that it claims would perform 57 percent better in write speed and power efficiency than its predecessor, the 970 EVO. It delivers read and write speeds of up to 3,500 megabytes per second (MB/s) and up to 3,300 MB/s, respectively.
“Since introducing the first NVMe SSDs to the consumer market in 2015, Samsung has continued to challenge technical barriers in SSD design and performance,” said Dr. Mike Mang, vice president of Brand Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics.
“The new 970 EVO Plus powered by Samsung’s latest fifth-generation V-NAND technology will now offer unrivaled performance in its class when taking on demanding tasks like 4K content editing, 3D modeling and simulation as well as heavy gaming.”
Samsung explains "random speeds come in at up to 620,000 IOPS for read and up to 560,000 IOPS for write operations."
