Samsung Debuts Industry-Leading 8TB Consumer SSD, the 870 QVO
Building on Samsung’s first consumer QLC Drive, the enhanced, second-generation 870 QVO offers terabyte-level capacity and excellent performance
Samsung Electronics Canada today introduced its second-generation quad-level cell (QLC) flash drive, the 870 QVO SATA SSD, setting a new standard for high-capacity consumer storage. Featuring an industry-leading capacity of up to eight terabytes (TB), the new SSD delivers an uncompromising mix of speed, storage capacity and reliability for mainstream and professional PC users alike.
In the past, consumers had to choose between SSDs that provide superior performance and HDDs, which traditionally offer greater capacity. Samsung’s 870 QVO SSD; however, is able to offer the best of both worlds, making it an optimal choice for mainstream PC users who prioritize performance and value as well as for professional users who require high levels of capacity.
“Following the launch of Samsung’s first consumer QLC drive – the 860 QVO – in 2018, we are releasing our second-generation QVO SSD which offers doubled capacity of 8TB as well as enhanced performance and reliability,” said Dr. Mike Mang, vice president of the Memory Brand Product Biz Team at Samsung Electronics. “The new 870 QVO will allow more consumers to enjoy the performance benefits of an SSD at HDD-like capacities.”
The 870 QVO offers excellent sequential read and write speeds of up to 560 MB/s and 530 MB/s, respectively, with the drive’s Intelligent TurboWrite technology allowing it to maintain peak performance levels using a large variable SLC buffer. The 870 QVO also delivers a 13% improvement in random read speed as compared to the Samsung 860 QVO, making it ideally suited for everyday computing needs such as multitasking, gaming and web browsing. The renewed Data Migration and Magician 6 softwares provide a host of improved and added features, enabling users to upgrade, manage and optimize their SSDs with greater ease.
In addition to the industry-leading capacity and performance, the 870 QVO provides an exceptional endurance rating of up to 2,880 terabytes written (TBW), or a three-year limited warranty.
