Samsung 860 QVO SSD Review Discussion

Recommended Posts

Samsung entered the QLC race today with its 860 QVO. The drive comes in capacities ranging from 1TB to 4TB. The 860 QVO leverages Samsung’s 4-bit MLC V-NAND and SATA interface. QLC promises more density at a lower costs but can come with a performance hit. To keep performance up with its 3-bit NAND drives, Samsung leverages the same MJX controller promising read speeds of 550MB/s and write speeds of 520MB/s. The drive comes with a 3-year limited warranty and can be bought for slightly under what the Intel QLC is being sold for, though the later leverages NVMe interface.

The testing methodology is a little different, we debated putting the 860 EVO on for instance, but it's apples to apples with a bite missing so we opted not to. You could pull the reviews side by side to compare with the understanding the QLC drives are tested more gently.
