Always Evolving SSD

The ultimate in performance, upgraded. Faster than the 970 EVO, the 970 EVO Plus is powered by Samsung’s latest V-NAND technology and firmware optimization. It maximizes the potential of NVMe bandwidth for superb computing. In capacities up to 2TB, with reliability of up to 1,200 TBW1.


1TBW: Terabytes Written. 1GB=1,000,000,000 bytes by IDEMA. A certain portion of capacity may be used for system file and maintenance use, so the actual capacity may differ from what is indicated on the product label.

Level up Performance

The 970 EVO Plus can reach sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,300 MB/s2, up to 53%3 faster than the 970 EVO. Samsung’s latest V-NAND—which brings greater NAND performance and higher power efficiency—along with optimized firmware, a proven Phoenix controller, and Intelligent TurboWrite boost speeds.

Level Up

2Performances may vary depending on SSD’s firmware version and system hardware & configuration. Performance measurements based on IOmeter 1.1.0. The write performances were measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology being activated. The sequential write performances after Intelligent TurboWrite region are: 400 MB/s(250GB), 900 MB/s(500GB), 1,700 MB/s(1TB) and 1,750 MB/s(2TB). Test system configuration: Intel Core i7-7700K CPU @ 4.2GHz, DDR4 2400MHz 32GB, OS-Windows 10 Built 10240, Chipset–ASUS PRIME Z270-A.
3Up to 53 percent performance increase for sequential write speed for 250GB version.

Design Flexibility
