Samsung evo vs pro

If you want to buy a new SSD, you can come across Samsung EVO and QVO models. Both are good options, but which of these consumer SSDs is more suitable for gaming? SSDs are particularly important for gaming PCs, so making the right choice is important.

In this article, we will compare two SSD ranges to find out which one is better. We will study specifications such as connection, R / W speed, capacity and upload speed to help you make a decision.

SSD Bit DRAM Cache is important because you need to make sure it fits your PC build. The connection is what physically connects the SSD card to the motherboard. The two most common types of SSD in

gaming PCs are SATA and NVMe.

SATA drives have a 2.5-inch form factor and can be plugged into a SATA port. Also, they require a power connection. NVMe drives use the M.2 port found on the motherboard. It draws power from the motherboard and does not need to be connected to your power source.

Let's take a look at the EVO and QVO series to see which models are suitable for gaming computers -

has four different types of SSD to choose from. Three of the four are standard SATA SSDs. However, the EVO 860 SATA m.2 is an SSD, which can be connected directly to the motherboard's m.2 port (assuming you have one). Unless your motherboard fails within a few years it will, but be sure to check either way. The read and write speed of the SSD

is very important, especially when gaming.

Read speed is a measure of the speed at which files are sequentially read from the drive at random. The writing speed measures the speed at which the drive sequentially and randomly writes files to the drive.

Let's take a look at the read and write specifications of these cards:

When comparing all SSD specifications, they are very similar, but the specifications of the 8060 EVA SATA m.2 seem to be the lowest of the four. The best specification device is the 870 QVO.

We will discuss the impact of these speeds on the game at the end of the article. The

SSD card uses flash memory to store data, which is much faster than traditional rotating drives. The

SSD used for gaming must have at least 500GB of storage space. Having a significantly larger capacity SSD card will benefit you a lot, especially when playing big modern AAA games.

Let's take a look at the capacity options of each Samsung model:

860 EVO SATA - 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, 4TB

860 EVO SATA m.2 - 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, 2TB SATA - 444Q 1TB, 2TB, 4TB

870 QVO SATA-1TB, 2TB, 4TB, 8TB

From these specifications, we can see that EVO has more options in terms of capacity. However, from a gaming point of view, 250GB is too low. The 500GB option that EVO should offer is a good starting point for those looking for a cheaper SSD. However, the unit will fill up quickly.

When looking at the 860 EVO SATA m.2, it doesn't have 4TB of space, while the other three SSDs do. The 870 QVO SATA has the best capacity options. When the

compares the prices of the 870 QVO with the 860 EVO SATA, the 870 with the same capacity is much cheaper. However, the price of an 8TB SSD is almost double that of a 4TB.

When gaming, SSD card loading speed is very important. If the SSD loading speed is particularly slow, you may experience longer load times and freeze during gaming. The shorter the load time of the

SSD, the smoother the overall gaming experience. When you use SSD as a boot drive, you will find that your PC starts up faster. Although using an SSD card regardless of its speed will increase your overall loading speed, the better the speed, the better your gaming experience.

When comparing SATA SSD to NVMe, both are great. Although you can see that the speed increase of NVMe is small, the function of SATA is very powerful. They also tend to be cheaper options.

When looking at these four SSDs, sequential speed is something you need to pay attention to. The 870 QVO performed best at 560MB / s. The performance of the other three SSDs is 550 MB / s. Although this is only a small difference, it is significant. The

sequential write speed is where the 870 QVO performs best, at 530MB / s, while other models are at 520MB / s. Overall, if you want to provide the best loading speed for your gaming PC, the 870 QVO is a good choice.

When looking at the Samsung EVO and QVO models, they are all very similar, but the specifications are slightly different. However, Samsung 870 QVO is hands down the best SSD card for gaming.
