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) , 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 2003. 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 respectively, with the drive’s Intelligent TurboWrite technology allowing it to maintain peak performance levels using a large variable SLC buffer. The 870 QVO also delivers a 13% improvement in random read speed 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 warranty.

2 Source: 2003 – 2019 IHS Markit data: NAND suppliers’ revenue market share.
3 Performance may vary based on SSD’s firmware version and system hardware & configuration. The sequential write performances are measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology being activated. The sequential write performances may not be sustained for the portion of data exceeding over Intelligent TurboWrite buffer size. Test system configuration: Intel® Core i7-7700k CPU@4.20GHz, DDR4 1200MHz 32GB, OS -Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Chipset – ASUS-PRIME-Z270-A.
4 The Intelligent TurboWrite technology adjusts the buffer size to optimal level within the usable disk space; up to 42 GB for 1 TB model and up to 78 GB for 2TB, 4TB and 8TB models. For more information on Intelligent TurboWrite, please visit www.samsungssd.com.
5 Based on internal testing, random performance improved up to 13% in QD1 Random Read and sustained random write performance improved up to 21% as compared to SSD 860 QVO. Performance measured on Windows 10 system. Queue depth (QD) is the number of pending input/output requests of data. Low QD random operations make up a much greater portion than sequential operations in everyday PC usage environments.
