The Samsung 970 Evo Plus M.2 2TB drives are designed to take full advantage of the potential of M.2 and PCIe Gen 3.0 x4. The medium is available with a capacity of up to 2TB. This model is characterized by fast handling of large amounts of data, accuracy and efficient communication with the system, while exhibiting low energy requirements. The use of a large Intelligent TurboWrite buffer optimizes operation under heavy loads, which, combined with high speed, significantly improves the performance of both advanced applications and demanding games.

Very high efficiency The Samsung 970 Evo Plus uses an NVMe 1.3 (PCIe Gen 3.0 x4) connector, a Phoenix controller, and Samsung’s advanced V-NAND chips. This combination offers very high speeds, reaching 3500MB/s for sequential reads (for all capacities) and 3300MB/s for writes for 1TB drives, 3300MB/s for 500GB drives and 2300MB/s for 250GB drives. Random speeds, on the other hand, are up to 550,000 IOPS for write operations. The 970 Evo Plus features a 57% increase in write speed compared to the 970 EVO.
An additional heat spreader is placed on the controller for better heat dissipation during intensive operation. In addition, a thermal sensor monitors the operating temperature of the controller and drive, and prevent overheating and performance drops.
Intelligent TurboWrite Technology
Intelligent TurboWrite uses a portion of the disk space to create a dynamic buffer that significantly speeds up the performance of the device. The size of the buffer varies depending on the demand.
Samsung Magician Software
The new version of Samsung Magician software offers easy access to reports and systems that monitor the drive’s performance. It also allows you to intuitively introduce additional options for security, authentication and data encryption. The software allows you to update the firmware of the disk from the level of the Windows operating system. Samsung Magician and NVMe driver can be downloaded directly from the samsung website.
Samsung 970 Evo Plus for Aggravants
Such high speeds are dedicated to the most demanding users, which will be useful, for example, in 4K video editing, rendering, modeling or 3D simulation, as well as creating instant backups of large amounts of data. Fast reading of data from the disk can also significantly reduce the loading time of games, so it will also be an excellent proposition for the most powerful gaming PCs.
