Samsung 870 EVO Incoming? New SATA Drive Likely Landing Soon

Rising like a phoenix.

WinFuture (opens in new tab), a German publication, reported that Samsung is revamping and revitalizing the company’s EVO series of SSDs. The South Korean conglomerate is about to unveil the new Samsung 870 EVO lineup.

The Samsung 870 EVO, which is rumored to be available at several European and North American retailers, will be available in the standard 2.5-inch form factor and will use the standard SATA III interface. It’s unclear whether Samsung will offer the SSD in mSATA and M.2 2280 flavors, as it has in the past.

For the time being, the exact model of the SSD controller and NAND chips inside the Samsung 870 EVO is unknown. If the drive is anything like its predecessor, the Samsung 860 EVO, we could see TLC (triple-level cell) memory – or, as Samsung prefers to call it, 3-bit MLC (multi-level cell) V-NAND.

Samsung 870 Evo Specifications

Product Form Factor Capacity Sequential Read (MBps) Sequential Write (MBps) Random Read (IOPS) Random Write (IOPS) Endurance (TBW) Warranty

Samsung 850 Evo 2.5 inch, mSATA, M.2 120GB, 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, 4TB Up to 540 Up to 520 Up to 98,000 Up to 90,000 Up to 300 5 Years
Samsung 840 Evo 2.5 inch 120GB, 250GB, 500GB, 750GB, 1TB Up to 410 Up to 520 Up to 98,000 Up to 90,000 N/A 3 Years

The Samsung 870 Evo’s capacity will not surprise you. Samsung will offer the drive in five primary capacities, according to WinFuture: 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB. This was to be expected given that Samsung hasn’t offered a 120GB EVO drive since the days of the 850 EVO.

According to reports, the Samsung 870 Evo has sequential read and write speeds of up to 560 MBps and 530 MBps, respectively. This represents a minor (10 MBps) performance improvement over the previous Samsung 860 EVO lineup. This is unsurprising given that the Samsung 870 EVO, like its predecessors, is limited to the SATA III interface. The drive’s random performance is currently unknown.

If WinFuture’s information on the drive’s endurance is correct, the Samsung 870 EVO could simply be a modest refresh of the Samsung 860 EVO. The 4TB model is allegedly rated for 2,400 TBW (terabytes written), which is the same as the Samsung 860 Evo 4TB model. The SSD will most likely be backed by Samsung’s standard five-year limited warranty.

Pricing for the Samsung 870 EVO is said to range between 70 and 450 euros ($85 to $548), depending on capacity. However, because the German news outlet did not specify where it saw the pricing, we are unable to guess which VAT (value-added tax) rate to use in our calculations. In the United States, the Samsung 860 EVO 250GB and 4TB costs $44.99 and $499.99, respectively.
