Product Description

The Samsung 870 QVO SATA SSD is the company's 2nd-generation quad-level cell (QLC) flash drive with industry-leading capacity of up to 8TB (eight terabytes). The 870 QVO combines speed, capacity, and reliability for the consumer storage market.
The 870 QVO offers best-in-class sequential read and write speeds, thanks to the drive's Intelligent TurboWrite technology with a large variable SLC buffer (up to 42GB for 1TB model, and up to 72GB for higher capacity models). It is also significantly faster than its predecessor, the 860 QVO, in random reads and writes.
In early 2021, Samsung released the 870 EVO that offers the same speed while trading some capacity for higher durability.

Product Ratings

  • Very good sequential write performance for almost all of the test duration
  • Very low energy usage
  • Very good write performance
