Samsung Releases 970 PRO and EVO SSDs

The Samsung 970 PRO and 970 EVO continues the company's push to deliver high speed data transfers for gamers and enthusiasts alike in their systems.

Meanwhile, 970 Evo is rated for the same 3,500 MB/s sequential read speeds, but sequentially writes at a slightly slower 2,500 MB/s. Both also make use of Samsung's 64L V-NAND MLC, however the 970 PRO uses the 2-bit variant while the 970 EVO uses the 3-bit version.

The South Korean tech giant said its NVMe SSD 970 PRO and EVO series have gone on sale in some 50 countries, including South Korea, the United States, China, and Germany. However just like how all HDDs aren't made equal, neither are SSDs and if you're looking for something more powerful for your next PC build, Samsung might have something for you in the form of the 970 PRO and EVO SSDs.

Samsung's 970 family of SSDs succeeds the 960 family with a sizable boost in write speeds. "The 970 series sets a new bar in all aspects for the NVMe SSD market with groundbreaking performance, superior reliability and best-in-class capacity". The new M.2 drives are using the latest V-NAND technology and an all new Phoenix controller to give speeds of up to 3,500 MB/s read and 2,700 MB/s write, which is almost 30% faster sequential writes than the 960 series, as well as boasting a 5 year or 1,200TBW warranty. Alternatively, if the drive fails before 1200TBs are written to it, then it will be replaced. The 970 EVO, in particular, utilizes the Intelligent TurboWrite technology, which uses a large buffer size of up to 78GB4 to enable faster write speeds. The 2TB 970 EVO has a similar 1,200 TB TBW as the 1TB 970 PRO.
