Amazon briefly listed on its website new Samsung 870 QVO SSDs with 1TB (model MZ-77Q1T0B / AM) and 8TB (model MZ-77Q8T0B / AM) of storage capacity. The 8TB model was listed at a suggested price of $ 899.99, while the 1TB model was listed at a suggested price of $ 129.99.
Company announced three new models with intensive, fast and business focus
Although the store only listed SSDs with these two storage capacities, it does not necessarily mean that the Samsung 870 QVO line will not have models with other capacities like 2TB and 4TB. It is worth remembering that the Samsung 860 QVO line launched in 2019 includes models with 1TB, 2TB and 4TB of storage capacity.
Samsung's new SSDs have SATA III (6.0Gbps) interface, 2.5 format and should use the company's 3D V-NAND QLC (quad-level cell) flash memory chips, which is still good enough for most use cases.
The read and write speeds of Samsung 870 QVO SSDs with 1TB and 8TB have yet to be released. Other information such as useful life and energy consumption are also unknown. The 860 QVO line currently offers read and write speeds of up to 550MB / s and 520MB / s, respectively.

If the listing in the store is really correct, the Samsung 870 QVO SSD will be available from June this year. The 8TB model should be available after August 24th. Although the prices for the two drives seem a little too high for QLC-based products, they are expected to fall over time as markets recover from the current Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
