Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus M.2 V-NAND 2TB

Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus M.2 V-NAND 2TB internal SSD offers enhanced bandwidth, low latency, and power efficiency, thanks to the Samsung’s V-NAND 3-bit MLC flash technology. Samsung 970 EVO Plus carries over the same controller as its predecessor. But instead of just refreshing it with the same flash, Samsung decided it was time to switch things up a bit with its new 9x-layer flash. Just as the flash is stacked to new heights, it seems performance is hitting new heights, too. The resulting Samsung 970 EVO Plus is exactly what its name says: a big Plus.

The 970 EVO Plus is the first to use 96-layer memory technology that may not be exactly 96 layers. The company calls it 9x-layer, but we prefer the generic 96 number since that’s the target for most companies. Samsung is the first company to build a NAND stack this high without using string-stacking technology that virtually glues two small die together. Samsung’s 96-Layer NAND features the fastest bus speed with 1.4Gbps throughput between the controller and the flash. The memory uses less power than the previous generation while breaking records for 3-bit per cell latency.

The sequential read performance peaks at the upper atmosphere of PCI Express 3.0 x4, 3,500 MB/s. The sequential write performance is the highest on record yet, 3,300 MB/s (for 1TB and 2TB versions). This is 300 MB/s higher than the new drives with the Phison E12 and Silicon Motion, Inc. SM2262EN controllers and almost 1000 MB/s more than the previous version Samsung EVO. The 970 EVO Plus is the closest flash-based NVMe SSD to the powerful Samsung 970 Pro under heavy write conditions.

The 970 EVO Plus didn’t change much on the outside compared to the previous generation. The drive still packs the components on one side making it usable in notebooks that cannot accept a double-sided M.2 SSD. On the back of the drive, there is a special sticker that uses a copper strip inside to spread the heat generated by the components on the other side.

Overall, Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 2TB offers you plenty of performance, endurance, and security. Samsung Magician and the data migration software are also a big plus. If you are ready to take on a new NVMe SSD for your PC, the Samsung 970 EVO Plus is a great buy.
