We've been enjoying the performance offered by the Samsung 960 Pro and 960 Evo M.2 SSDs since 2016. Both drives continue to come near the top of the charts as a storage solution, but now Samsung is set to replace them with the 970 Pro and Evo. The slightly faster Pro doesn't offer 2TB, but the 1TB version is 63c (45p)- which is an bad lot for relatively little speed boost. While the 1TB 970 EVO matches the 600TB of the 512GB 970 PRO. They're designed based on the M.2 2280 form factor with the latest PCIe Gen 3 x4 lane interface and combine a new Phoenix controller with 64-layer 3D NAND flash memory. On the 970 PRO, buyers can expect sequential read speeds of up to 3500MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 2700MB/s. Write speeds in particular have had a 30 percent boost over the previous generation thanks to improvements made to Samsung's V-NAND and Phoenix controller. The Evo on the other hand uses 3-bit MLC memory, has write speeds of up to 2,500MB/s with 480,000 IOPS.
The 970 PRO and EVO also offer a five-year warranty, or up to 1,200TB written. Further reliability is offered by a Dynamic Thermal Guard ensuring the drives don't overheat and Samsung Magician software, which manages the drives and keeps them performing optimally. However, if you want the fastest storage possible, then NVMe SSDs using a PCIe interface are where the best performance lies.
Samsung inspires the world and shapes the future with transformative ideas and technologies. For the latest news, please visit the Samsung Newsroom at http://news.samsung.com. The 1TB model uses 1GB LPDDR4, while the 2TB model uses 2GB LPDDR4.
The new Samsung 970 PRO and 970 EVO receives upgrades from their predecessor in terms of transfer speeds - both for read and write.
Samsung's 970 family of SSDs succeeds the 960 family with a sizable boost in write speeds. For more information on the TurboWrite, please visit www.samsungssd.com.
The 960 PRO is available in 512GB with 512MB LPDDR4 DRAM cache, as well as in 1TB with 1GB LPDDR4 DRAM cache options. The memory market surged almost $50 billion to reach $130 billion (roughly Rs. ) in 2017 - a 61.8 percent increase from 2016. A certain portion of capacity may be used for system file and maintenance use, so the actual capacity may differfrom what is indicated on the product label.
