This is the lowest official price we’ve ever come across for this model. We reviewed a smaller capacity SSD from the same line in 2019 when they first debuted. The biggest change between the 970 EVO Plus and the 970 EVO is the switch to 92-layer 3D NAND.
This SSD, along with the other capacities in this line, features an M.2 2280 form factor. The read/write speed on the 2TB edition can reach up to 3500/3300 MB/s. They all connect using a PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 NVMe 1.3 interface.
According to the official specifications from Samsung, the 970 EVO Plus uses an in-house storage controller. Users have the option of installing Samsung Magician—a proprietary application from the manufacturer with drive management tools. They also offer a system called Dynamic Thermal Guard which monitors temperature changes to help with performance.
For added security, users can choose to implement 256-bit AES encryption to protect their data. The Samsung 970 EVO Plus comes with a 5-year limited warranty that voids after reaching 1200 TBW.
