Whereas the pro is a little bit more expensive but does offer a little bit more performance well today things are about to change because we’re here with the 970 Evo + SSD that has just dropped from Samsung and is an update to the existing line and gives some pretty decent improvements for the nbme tech that it does pack inside of it so let’s go ahead and have a look now Samsung just dropped this drive actually has a BST as of recording this video although a little bit longer as of release in this video and is clearly an update to the 970 Evo hence why it carries the same name basically except has a + and that’s where the little tweaks and bits and pieces under the hood definitely do shine here with a bump in lifespan and a few other tweaks in the performance Department with for example writes of up to 3.5 gigabytes per second and up to one point two terabytes written on the top tier drives it’s not too bad in the performance and longevity department now some other good things in terms of this Drive like better hardware encryption and also two slightly better power savings thanks the fact that is using slightly different technology here but it is also too backed up by the usual suspects like a 5 year warranty and some really good components under the hood now speak about of hood actually drilling into some of those specifications we are looking at the same Samsung finished controller as last time which means it’s gonna favour performance over power consumption but thanks to fact that the new NAND flash modules are a little bit power saving are we can expect slightly better power savings here moving on we also to looking at 512 Meg’s of DRAM on the 250 gigabyte model and 500 gigabyte model 1 gig on the 1 terabyte and 2 gigs of DRAM on the two terabyte model now these are lpddr4 modules so they’re the fastest they are the nicest and of course the RAM is right here now we won’t go into too deep but essentially DRAM is gonna be used not necessarily for a drive cache rather to stall the mapping kind of data that is used to figure out where all the data is on the drive now this DRAM is also to use features on the drive but we’ll touch on that in sort of a separate video from this one.
Today though we are looking at the 250 gigabyte model and do note there is no pleb spec 120 cubic model it starts at 250 gigabytes which I have to say is a good move because we’re definitely getting to a point where 120 gig drives are literally very very cheap and really anyone get into them 250 is a great place to start now the tricky thing here is actually how the paper numbers are actually written now when we expect to see read and write numbers on a piece of paper we see it read in one column right on the other however this particular SSDI features SLC Flash as well as your typical TLC flash so a lot of SSDs out there that we’ve checked out on the channel which probably should pop up at some point there and all feature one that type of memory model generally speaking MSE or TLC memory flash whereas this guy has both so SLC for your super fast instant drive access and then TLC for bit more of your mass storage right yeah now this is where ax is kind of like a cache with our SLC acting as the super fast bit that everything just gets written to and then the TLC is OD a bit more bigger storage and this is all managed on the actual SSD itself and nothing you have to actually worry about yourself but it’s something I do really like now unfortunately we don’t actually have dedicated numbers so we’re not exactly sure what kind of sizes that SLC chipset is and unfortunately I didn’t get enough time to actually rip into this drive and really find out some more our detailed specs but it is really interesting to see two different type of memory modules on there that do two different things however I did notice that over about 50 percent fills so that’s 60 70 80 percent feel that SLC cache does start to slow down as it starts to use that SLC to store data on there but all in all if you are keeping and drive at a reasonable fill rate it’s going to be extremely fast for a very long time oh and also to be the biggest change actually comes in the form of the NAND flash ping going from 64 layer NAND flash all the way up to 96 layer NAND flash now what does this really mean for you as the end user well it means a couple things for instance as I dimension it means lower power consumption and better performance but also to all-round things like better lifespan better durability and all in all is just a better update to what we were with 64 layer air 3d NAND flash now don’t get me wrong 64 layer is still good but hey 96 isn’t even better in terms of the design department we’ll take a quick look here does have the same matte black PCB same size really same everything in terms of the design department which is not a bad thing I definitely do like the assets like SSD lineup especially if they’re going in some sort of SSD kind of adapter or dock or somewhere being mounted visible they look pretty clean they look pretty tidy and I have to give Samsung a thumbs up from me now normally at this point we’ll go ahead and actually rip into this guy and check under the hood.
I can’t because I don’t actually own this drive and I need to give it back in one working order but also to exactly how I got it so I can actually go pulling stickers off but thanks to the guys over in an antique for taking photos of this guy without any stickers on it so we can get a bit of a look of the idea we can see out to you memory modules right here most likely one being SLC one being our TLC they do have different part numbers so it kind of gives it away right there our DRAM and also to the control itself again the controller is exactly the same as what we’ve had before it’s just more of the NAND side that is getting a little bit of an upgrade right here and well I guess thing that we can’t rip into it ourselves or let’s jump into the performance to permanent going straight into crystal disk mark we get some seriously solid numbers with 2.5 gigabytes per second by 2.3 gigabytes per second on the reads and writes respectively I’m definitely not unhappy at all 2.5 gigabytes per second is absolutely crazy when writing to these drives jumping to some real-world numbers we found that our game load times were perfectly great for this kind of an SSD obviously faster than well just about anything else we tested other than maybe a ram disk and also to the actual FPS itself wasn’t affected with no lag or stuttering introduced when playing these games looking at our Drive leaderboard well as I mentioned the only thing that really loses out to is maybe a ram disk but really there’s very little that actually even comes close that we’ve tested out so fine I really love to see are the 970 Evo plus really coming into its own rounding out our test right here looking in our dodging this graphic does show a 1 out of 10 obviously being the least dodgiest drive that we’ve actually checked out one being super not 10 being the most obvious thing we’ve ever checked out obviously being made by Samsung it’s in excellent our components and also to excellent support Samsung is a company that’s not going anywhere anytime soon so have no problems recommending and also to buying this drive for myself which brings us to the question of should you buy one and the answers obviously without a doubt and absolute yes now at the time of recording we’re actually expecting to see these SSDs come out at the same as existing 970 Evo which makes literally no sense to buy the Evo any more and if you just did you’re probably punching yourself in the face because uh it’s a little bit of a bummer that you bought drive and now you’ve got something that could have been a lot cheaper maybe try and get your refund back on that but either way the 970 Evo plus is definitely something that gets a big thumbs up and a big recommendation from me because it’s coming at the same as the old one there’s not really that much point in buying the old one now that being said if the old one gets a wicked cut then we can start talking if you don’t want to spend as much but still get great performance then 9:7 Evo but spend a little bit more and get the plus that’s kind of an argument we’ll have to wait and see what Samsung actually does or maybe Samsung will just cancel off the 970 but we’re not exactly sure at the time of recording maybe by the time this video releases it’ll be updated and we actually know what’s going on but all in all it is an absolute no brainer if you’re looking at this drive just get it because it’s way better than the probe or rather better than the Evo and comes in nicely with the pro along side of it and that brings us to the tail DW part of the video the new 970 Evo plus is well just like the name suggests is much like the nine-seven Evo plus a few extra little goodies right here with the biggest change really coming down to that NAND flash offering 96 layer 3d NAND flash for better performance better data density lower power consumption and all in all better performance the key parts like controllers and PCBs are all the same as the old model but honestly that’s not really something that was really a bad thing at all with very reasonable gains in terms of the reeds and also to writes numbers we see that the new Evo plus is very solid in both the synthetics world but also to the real world file transfer and a real world gaming world the point is also to a really good deal coming in at exactly the same as the existing line seven Evo making it an absolute no-brainer to buy this guy over the older 970 Evo though that being said if the Evo gets a tag we may need to redress this type of question but do you note it is a really good Drive and I’ll leave it linked down in that description box as soon as they do become available or if this videos out and they are available then I’ll have a link down below but let me know down in their comment sections would you like to see Samsung do the same thing but to the pro model I would love to see a 970 Pro Plus and get the same title to sort of gains that we saw from the Evo to the Evo Plus on the pro side I think that’s going to be really really cool but do let me know what you think down in that comment section guys thanks all for watching I’ll catch you all in the next one you.
