Always Evolving SSD
The ultimate in performance, upgraded. Faster than the 970 EVO, the 970 EVO Plus is powered by the latest V-NAND technology and firmware optimization. It maximizes the potential of NVMe bandwidth for unbeatable computing. Comes in capacities of up to 1TB, with reliability of up to 600 TBW.
Level up Performance
The 970 EVO Plus reaches sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,300 MB/s, up to 53% faster than the 970 EVO. Powered by the latest V-NAND technology—which brings greater NAND performance and higher power efficiency—along with optimized firmware, a proven Phoenix controller, and Intelligent TurboWrite boost speed.
The next advancement in NVMe SSDs. The 970 EVO Plus fits up to 1TB onto the compact M.2 (2280) form factor, greatly expanding storage capacity and saving space for other components. Samsung’s innovative technology empowers you with the capacity to do more and accomplish more.
The new standard in sustainable performance. Get up to 600 TBW with a 5-year limited warranty for lasting performance. The 970 EVO Plus provides exceptional endurance powered by the latest V-NAND technology and Samsung’s reputation for quality.
Achieve a new level of drive confidence. Samsung’s advanced nickel-coated controller and heat spreader on the 970 EVO Plus enable superior heat dissipation. The Dynamic Thermal Guard automatically monitors and maintains optimal operating temperatures to minimize performance drops.
Advanced drive management made simple. The Samsung Magician software will help you keep an eye on your drive. A suite of user-friendly tools helps keep your drive up to date, monitor drive health and speed, and even boost performance.
The Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus drives we tested put up strong numbers across the board. They are among the fastest solid state drives we’ve tested, in terms of sequential transfers, especially sequential reads, where the drives compete across the board. Sequential writes are also good, so long as the transfer size doesn’t exceed the capacity of the Turbowrite cache. When the Turbowrite cache is exhausted, write performance drops off considerably — this shouldn’t be a problem for the vast majority of consumer workloads, however. Access times were also good with the 970 EVO Plus drives, they were among the best performers in the trace-based tests, and at low queue depths read performance is competitive, but they offer particularly strong writes.
