Samsung, one of the world’s leading manufacturers in the SSD (Solid State Drive) market, recently launched the latest SATA SSD 870 QVO. For those of you who are watching SSD development, of course, know that this SSD is the second generation of Samsung’s previous SATA SSD, which is 860 QVO, which was launched in December 2018 ago.
As the next generation from before, the Samsung 870 QVO is certainly coming back by relying on the QLC NAND (Quad-Level Cell) chip as well as with the form factor 2.5 SATA SATA interface. But for this 870 QVO, Samsung is trying to provide a more spacious capacity variant up to 8 TB.
Dr. Mike Mang, as President of the Memory Brand Product Team Biz Team from Samsung Electronics, said that the Samsung 870 QVO will enable consumers to better enjoy a storage media with a much larger capacity but has better performance than the HDD.
“Now we present a capacity of 2 times (8 TB) at 870 QVO compared to the first generation and of course this SSD has improved performance and reliability”, said Dr. Mike Mang, as the news we quoted from Tech Power Up.
Regarding the specifications, the Samsung 870 QVO relies on a homemade controller, the Samsung MKX which is paired with a Samsung 1Tbit 92L 3D QLC NAND. This SSD is claimed to offer sequential Read / Write speeds reaching 560MB / s and 530MB / s. Samsung claims that the 870 QVO is very reliable for daily users on their PC.
Samsung also provides supporting software such as Samsung Magician 6 Software to monitor SSD conditions and Data Migration that can be used for SSD cloning. Samsung 870 QVO is available in 4 capacity options, starting from 1 TB, 2 TB, 4 TB and 8 TB. The price offered starts from USD 129.99 for a capacity of 1 TB.
