Samsung 970 EVO 2TB SSD Review

For testing, the drives are all wiped and reset to factory settings by HDDerase V4. We try to use free or easily available programs and some real world testing so you can compare our findings against your own system. This is a good way to measure potential upgrade benefits.

Main system:
Intel Core i7-7700K with 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, Sapphire R9 390 Nitro and an Asus Prime Z270-A motherboard.

Other drives:

  • Corsair Force MP500 480GB
  • Intel SSD760p 512GB
  • Kingston A1000 480GB
  • Plextor M9Pe(Y) 512GB
  • Plextor M8PeG 512GB
  • PNY CS2030 240GB
  • Samsung SSD960 PRO 2TB
  • Samsung SSD960 EVO 1TB
  • Toshiba OCZ RD400 512GB

  • Atto Disk Benchmark.
  • CrystalMark 6.0.
  • AS SSD.
  • IOMeter.
  • Futuremark PC Mark 8

All our results were achieved by running each test five times with every configuration, to ensure no anomalous results are presented. TRIM is confirmed as running by typing ‘fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify’ into the command line. A response of ‘isabledeletenotify =0’ confirms TRIM is active.
