The 870 Evo is not as fast as Samsung 970 Series SSD (which have maximum sequential read speeds of 3500MB / s) and other M.2 memories. So, it won’t be the perfect choice for gamers looking for faster storage for their games. However, the 870 is perhaps a more budget option that might be best suited for general functions, such as your media library, multitasking, and web browsing.
The 870 Evo will be available later this month, starting at $ 50 for 250GB. The 500GB version costs $ 80 and a terabyte drive will set you back $ 140. If you prefer the 2TB model, you’ll have to shell out over $ 270, while the 4TB 870 Evo costs $ 530.
