Samsung Electronics Singapore, the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced the launch of 870 EVO SSD, the company's latest SATA solution in its world’s best-selling consumer SSD series1. The new drive combines best-in-class performance and reliability, offering an all-in-one storage solution for various consumers from general PC users to IT professionals.



“As remote work arrangements continue to drive demand for better computing performance, fast-performing SSDs like the 870 EVO can improve everyday computing experience while offering better SSD reliability and compatibility.

Harnessing its accumulated experience and expertise in storage memory technologies, Samsung designs all SSD components in-house to ensure that every part works together cohesively. This has culminated in the 870 EVO offering up to 30% improvement in sustained performance over the 860 EVO2, a class-leading terabytes written (TBW) rating of 2,400TB3, or a five-year limited warranty, for its 4TB model4.



The 870 EVO also provides broad compatibility with many computing devices and the most up-to-date PC features. The drive can be used with all devices that have 2.5-inch SATA interface connection. Moreover, with its power saving sleep mode, the 870 EVO is compatible with devices that support Window's Modern Standby function, offering added convenience to PC users5.
