Samsung 870 EVO Solid State Drive Overview
If you’ve seen a Samsung solid state drive before they are pretty plain, which is fine with me. The 870 EVO is all black with a Samsung logo in the center and a small arrow denoting what side the connections are on.
Flipping over to the back of the drive there is a sticker that has all of our relevant information on it including the capacity, model number, serial number, etc. We can also see the four reinforced mounting holes.
Looking at the drive from the side we can see two more mounting holes. This drive is very thin as well, only 6.8mm.
On the end of the drive you’ll find your typical SATA data and power connections.
As I mentioned inside the drive you’ll find Samsung’s MKX controller, 128-Layer V-NAND TLC flash, and a DRAM chip.
