The Samsung 960 EVO M.2 is the latest generation of M.2 Solid State Drives. Based on Samsung V-Nand Technology and the NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 interface, this SSD offers amazing transfer speeds that leave all other SSDs trailing behind; the read speed of this SSD is up to 3,200MB/sec with write speeds up to 1,800MB/sec.
The 960 EVO M.2 has been enhanced with more features than earlier editions, including a new controller and Samsung's intelligent TurboWrite technology, which delivers next-generation performance. Also included are an advanced maintenance software solution and a 3-year limited warranty.
Samsung's new 960 EVO NVMe SSD delivers uncompromising power and performance. Now, equipped with the enhanced bandwidth of the NVMe interface, the 960 EVO is ideal for intensive workloads while remaining extremely energy efficient at peak workloads. Presented in a compact M.2 form factor, the 960 EVO is the perfect solution for consumers or professionals looking for the ultimate in SSD performance and reliability.
The V-NAND technology used in the Samsung 960 EVO increases endurance and prolongs the lifespan with insulators that cause less stress and are more resistant to wear under heavy client workloads when compared to Planar NAND over a 5-year period. The Samsung 960 EVO M.2 also features Dynamic Thermal Throttling Protection technology, which controls the temperature of the device to reduce overheating and maintain a high level of sustained performance.
Not only does the Samsung 960 EVO M.2 perform better than other M.2 SSDs, it is also more power efficient, so your battery will last longer and maintain superior performance levels over a longer period to time compared to SATA SSD.
Equipped with the enhanced bandwidth of the NVMe interface, the 960 EVO is ideal for intensive workloads, such as computer-aided design, data analysis and engineering simulations. It outperforms SATA SSDs in sequential read and write speeds, delivering the speeds of 3,200MB/s and 1,800MB/s respectively.*
