Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe SSD Review (250GB/1TB) – Knockout Performance at a Value Price

CRYSTAL DISK BENCHMARK VER. 5.5.0 X64

Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through sampling of random data which is, for the most part, incompressible. Performance is virtually identical, regardless of data sample so we have included only that using random data samples. We have included the 1TB version results on the right and 250GB results on the left.

 

Considering that this is supposed to be a value targeted SSD, these are great results from both the 1TB and 250GB capacities. Both results match listed specifications exactly.

AS SSD BENCHMARK VER 1.9

The toughest benchmark available for solid state drives is AS SSD as it relies solely on incompressible data samples when testing performance. For the most part, AS SSD tests can be considered the ‘worst case scenario’ in obtaining data transfer speeds and many enthusiasts like AS SSD for their needs. Transfer speeds are displayed on the left with IOPS results on the right.

Sequential reads and writes are a bit lower than listed specs and that is typical of this benchmark software. Listed specs for IOPS are 600K read and 550K write, write IOPS of 441K being just a bit low.

ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL

Anvil’s Storage Utilities (ASU) are the most complete test bed available for the solid state drive today. The benchmark displays test results for, not only throughput but also, IOPS and Disk Access Times. Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and use in our benchmark testing.

AJA VIDEO SYSTEM DISK TEST

The AJA Video Systems Disk Test is relatively new to our testing and tests the transfer speed of video files with different resolutions and Codec.

I recently bought the 970 Evo 500GB, but haven’t used it yet, and it’s still in the window of time to return it. I’m considering returning it and getting the Plus 500GB. Are there any areas where the previous 970 is better than the Plus ?

Sorry…no. The Plus is an amazing SSD.

Just wondering would the 1TB 970 Plus best my relatively new 970 Pro in terms of overall read/write performance?

If only their QLC drives were that good 🙂
