Samsung has unveiled its new 870 EVO series of consumer SATA SSDs based on sixth generation 128-layer TLC 3D V-NAND, which debuted in the high-performance 980 PRO NVMe SSD.

The upcoming launch of the new series was announced earlier this month. The updated EVO SATA SSDs hit the market three years after the Samsung 860 EVO and 860 PRO models. The new SSDs differ from their predecessors in higher write and read speeds at more affordable prices.

The Samsung 870 EVO provides sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB / s and 530 MB / s, respectively. IOPS (input / output operations per second) reaches 98k for random read and 88k for random write.
