Quick OverviewSamsung 970 EVO Plus
At a Glance
Featuring our latest V-NAND technology and a newly enhanced Phoenix controller, Samsung 970 EVO Plus Series NVMe M.2 SSDs deliver outstanding performance in Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe), with exceptionally fast sequential speeds outperforming our standard 970 EVO models. Plus, Samsung's Magician software solution provides advanced functionality for you to manage, monitor and maintain your drive.
Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe)
970 EVO Plus 500GB NVMe SSDs with a newly enhanced Phoenix controller outperform our standard 970 EVO 500GB model with exceptionally fast sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,300 MB/s. They also support PCI Express® (PCIe) Gen 3 x 4 lanes to provide high bandwidth and low latency, making them perfect for business professionals who need cutting edge-performance for high-end computing.
Samsung’s intelligent TurboWrite technology helps to maximize your computing ability, accelerating write speeds above and beyond the already exceptionally fast speeds of NVMe.
Dynamic Thermal Guard
This feature constantly monitors and works to maintain ideal temperatures to protect the integrity of your data and safeguard from overheating. When temperatures rise above an optimal threshold, the Dynamic Thermal Guard automatically throttles them down to protect data while maintaining responsiveness.
Secure your investment with a 4-year limited warranty up to 300 TBW. The 970 EVO Series also minimizes performance degradation over time, in order to provide sustained performance for high-end business use.
Professional-Quality Drive Management
With the Samsung Magician software solution, you get advanced functionality to manage, monitor and maintain your 970 EVO Plus SSDs. Magician provides personalized firmware checking and additional functions tailored for individual drives. It even updates the firmware automatically to make sure that the drive's performance stays up to date.
Samsung's proprietary V-NAND flash memory helps to overcome the limitations of conventional planar NAND architecture. It stacks 64 cell layers vertically over one another rather than trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space, in order to provide high density and performance with a small footprint.
SSD Data Security
This Drive includes an AES-256-bit hardware based, full disk encryption engine that secures your data without sacrificing performance and is compliant with TCG/OPAL V2.0 and IEEE1667.
Highly-Efficient Power Management
Thanks to exceptionally low active power consumption, you can work efficiently for long periods of time. Device Sleep Mode is also supported for ultra-thin laptop PCs and high-end desktop main boards.

Solid State Drive [SSD] offers lightning speed for your PC to boot up and run applications compared to the traditional Hard disks. While your processor can handle billions of cycles per second, it spends a lot of time waiting for your drive to feed data. Hard drives are particularly sluggish because they have moving parts and platters that have to spin up. To get optimal performance, you need a good SSD. We are here to provide the knowledge you need to make an informed purchasing decision.
Here are the facts you need to take into account while purchasing a SSD:
Find out if you have slots for M.2 drives on your motherboard and room in the chassis. If not, you may need a 2.5-inch drive instead.
Make sure you trust the quality of the manufacturer if you plan to use the SSD for the long term. The quality of the manufacturer will be reflected in how the wear patterns of the SSD are managed as well as the possibility of whether or not you get a warning before your SSD dies.
Most SSDs range from 120 GB to 2 TB. 120 GB drives are the cheapest but adequately capable of handling operating system and productivity applications. It costs a little extra to step up from 120 to 250 GB but the money is well spent in terms of performance. 500GB is the sweet spot between price, performance, and capacity for most users – particularly if you don't have the budget for a 1TB model.
Remember that high-end drives, while technically faster, won’t often feel speedier than less-speedy options in common tasks.
So unless you’re chasing extreme speed for professional or enthusiast reasons, it’s often best to choose an affordable mainstream drive that has the capacity you need at a price you can afford.
