Product information - 970 Evo Plus NVMe SSD, PCIe 3.0 M.2 Typ 2280 - 500 GBThe 970 EVO Plus SSD series from Samsung represents yet another astonishing leap forward over all previous speeds, securing its place as the unrivalled market leader when it comes to flash-based Solid State Drives. The reasoning behind this is due in no small part to the technical superiority of Samsung SSDs, most of all the Samsung 970 EVO Plus series that uses the M.2 format and offers 500 GB of storage, stacked MLC memory cells with 90 or more layers (V-NAND v5), blazing fast PCI-Express 3.0 connectivity with 4 Lanes and support for the cutting-edge NVM-Express 1.3 protocol. The new Samsung NVMe SSD 970 EVO Plus series offers up to 36 percent faster write speeds than its predecessor .
The Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2-NVMe PCIe-SSD at a Glance:
- Modern M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD with 500 GB capacity
- Ultra-fast 3.500/3.200 MB/s Read/Writes
- Total of 480.000/550.000IOPS 4KB Random Read/Write (QD32)
- Samsung Phoenix Controller & Samsung MLC V-NAND v5 (9x Layer)
- Guaranteed write volume (TBW): 300 TB (or 5 year manufacturer's guarantee)
M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD with Massive Read- and Write SpeedsThe Samsung "Phoenix" controller of this hyper-fast drive supports four PCI-Express Lanes of Standards 3.0, that enable a theoretical max throughput of some 3.900 MB/s! In conjunction with the Samsung MLC-V NAND (Version 5) the 500 GB variant of the Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus achieves a massive 3.500 MB/s Read speeds and 3.200 MB/s when writing as well as fantastic IOPS speeds of 480.000 in 4KB Reads with 550.000 in 4KB Writes. The modern "Phoenix" controller chip allows, when paired with the revised and updated Intelligent TurboWrite Technology, aka SLC Cache, for a massive boost in terms of durability. The improved Dynamic Thermal Guard supports improved heat dissipation, which enables the drive's high speeds to be sustained for longer.
Highly Efficient 3D VNAND with 9x LayersVersion 5 3D VNAND memory 5 (V-NAND v5 for short) used in the Samsung 970 EVO Plus refers to the cylindrical cells that are stacked on top of one another in multiple layers. Firstly, this enables greater memory capacities with higher read-/write speeds with a smaller surface area footprint. Secondly however, this increases the lifespan of the memory as well as its energy efficiency. In comparison to its predecessor series, the Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSDs utilise 90 rather than 64 layers and - even at 2 TB of maximum capacity, only use one side, meaning that maximum compatibility is achieved and the drives will fit in most notebooks.
Intelligent TurboWrite for Maximising SpeedsThis Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus is able to use the new and improved Intelligent TurboWrite Technology with the 500 GB of DRAM Cache. This improves the user experience primarily when transferring large files or using applications with heavy read loads.
Note: In order to achieve maximum speeds, the proprietary Samsung NVMe driver must be installed and updated at regular intervals. For firmware updates, Samsung's Magician software is available.
