Samsung’s new 870 QVO line features the 1st 8 TB SSD for consumers
Check out the new 870 QVO line of SSDs from Samsung. It is the first solid state drive for residential use of 8TB that the company launches!
Samsung has just launched the next generation of its QVO line of high capacity consumer SSDs. Solid-state drivers are already available for sale through the US Samsung website and other stores like Amazon.
The QVO 870 line starts with the 1TB model for $ 129.99 , going through 2TB ($ 249), 4TB ($499) and 8TB. In case you really need fast access to a large amount of data, the 8TB model will be available in August. It is the first time that Samsung launches a solid-state drive for residential consumers with the capacity of 8TB. According to Tom’s Hardware website, this 8TB storage unit is expected to cost $ 900 and will be launched on August 24th.
The 870 QVO line is the successor to the 860 QVO, which was launched at the end of 2018. It is a 2.5-inch SATA drive that fits most desktops and notebooks. This model uses Samsung’s 4-bit multilevel architecture (known as quad-level or QLC) which helps to maintain a good price for faster transfer speeds.
Samsung’s new line of SSDs shows a small increase in its sequential read and write speeds, with 560MB / s and 530MB / s respectively (a gain of 10MB / s compared to its predecessor). According to the company, there is a 13% performance gain over the previous line when it comes to random reading speed.
Taking into account that there is not so much difference in performance, taking into account a common consumer, between a Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD and an 870 QVO, it is worth thinking about an economy when we analyze the prices of the 1TB version for example ($ 189,99 against $ 129.99).
SSDs will have a 3-year limited warranty.
