Samsung Supercharges Computing Experiences with

Industry-Leading 8TB 870 QVO

Second-generation QLC SSD offers double the capacity of its predecessor which offers an incredible upgrade for everyday PC users

SINGAPORE – 14 July 2020 – Samsung Electronics Singapore today introduced its second-generation quad-level cell (QLC) flash drive, the 870 QVO SATA SSD, that is setting a new standard for high-capacity consumer storage. Featuring an industry-leading capacity of up to eight terabytes (TB) 1, the new solid state drive (SSD) delivers an uncompromising mix of speed, storage capacity and reliability for mainstream and professional PC users.

With the new 870 QVO SSD, consumers no longer have to choose between traditional SSDs that provide superior performance and HDDs that traditionally offer greater capacity. Samsung’s 870 QVO SSD is able to reliably offer the best of both worlds, making it an optimal choice for mainstream PC users who prioritise performance and value, as well as for professional users who require high levels of capacity.

“Ongoing telecommuting arrangements in Singapore have accelerated the demand for high-performance consumer storage devices. With the new 870 QVO, Samsung is meeting this need and continuing to strengthen our market leadership as the world’s number one flash memory since 20032. It offers doubled capacity of 8TB as well as enhanced performance and reliability compared to its predecessor, which enables everyday PC users to enjoy performance benefits with maximised storage,” said Jacus Long, Director & Head, Display and Brand Memory Business, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

The 870 QVO offers best-in-class sequential read and write speeds of up to 560 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively3, with the drive’s Intelligent TurboWrite technology allowing it to maintain peak performance levels using a large variable SLC buffer4. The 870 QVO also delivers a 13% improvement in random read speed5 compared to the 860 QVO, making it ideally suited for everyday computing needs such as multitasking, gaming and web browsing. The renewed Data Migration and Magician 6 softwares provide a host of improved and added features, enabling users to upgrade, manage and optimse their SSDs with greater ease.

In addition to the industry-leading capacity and performance, the 870 QVO provides an exceptional endurance rating of up to 2,880 terabytes written (TBW), or a three-year limited warranty6.
