The new SSD comes with intelligent TurboWrite technology, which allows it to use a large variable SLC buffer to maintain maximum performance. Compared with the previous generation product, the random read speed of this new version is increased by 13%, which can enhance the daily computing experience.
The 870 QVO has 9-layer V-NAND features and an updated controller with advanced ECC algorithms. Samsung claims to provide write endurance (TBW) up to 2880 TB, or a three-year limited warranty. Compared with the previous version, it is substantially 30% higher, which enables it to continuously provide better performance for a longer period of time. It is worth noting that the QVO range is located in the more advanced EVO range, which proves to be faster and more energy efficient.

This is a huge improvement compared to the T5, which provides a data transmission speed of 540MBps. The SSD comes with a conventional USB Type-C port, which has a USB 3.2 (2nd generation) standard and supports backward compatibility. Also supports AES 256-bit hardware encryption. Unlike T7 Touch, this product has a variety of color options, including metallic red, indigo and Titan gray.
