(Tech Mainstream) Samsung Electronics America recently introduced its second-generation quad-level cell (QLC) flash drive, the Samsung 870 QVO SATA SSD, that is setting a new standard for high-capacity consumer storage. Furthermore, the Samsung 870 QVO SATA SSD features 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.

Consumers In the past have had to choose between SSDs – which provide superior performance – and HDDs, which traditionally offer superior capacity. Samsung’s 870 QVO SSD, however, is able to reliably 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.

The 870 QVO offers best-in-class 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 compared to the 860 QVO, making it ideally suited for daily 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.

Additionally, the 870 QVO provides an exceptional endurance rating of up to 2,880 terabytes written (TBW), or a three-year limited warranty.

The 870 QVO is available now at select retailers and Samsung.com starting at $129.99 for the 1TB, $249.99 for the 2TB and $499.99 for the 4TB. The 870 QVO 8TB will be available in August.
