Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB Review


In our 128KB Sequential tests the drive produced read and write figures that both bettered the official drive ratings. The read test gave a figure of 3,618MB/s against the official 3,500MB/s while the write figure of 3,423MB/s was an improvement over the official 3,300MB/s.

128KB Sequential Read Performance Compared

At a QD of 1, the 970 EVO Plus sits below the original 970 EVO in the Sequential read results chart, but as the queue depth deepens the new drive pulls away from the older drive until finally at a QD of 32 it sits firmly in the top spot on the chart, even beating Samsung’s own mighty 970 PRO.

128KB Sequential Write Performance Compared


It’s a similar story when it comes to Sequential writes. At a QD of 1, the new drive isn’t as quick as the old drive but as the queue depth deepens, the new drive quickly pulls away. In fact, it tops the charts in queue depths 2, 4 and 32.
