Thanks to firmware optimized for the company’s most advanced V-NAND technology, the 970 EVO Plus achieves significant performance gains. Compared to its predecessor, the 970 EVO, write speeds can increase by up to 57 percent and also show better results in terms of energy efficiency. The new drive's sequential read and write speeds can reach 3 and 500 MB / s, respectively. The random rate is 3 IOPS for read and 300 IOPS for write operations.
