Samsung's 950 Pro NVMe SSD is now ready to Pre-order


When Samsung announced their 950 Pro M.2 SSD the enthusiast market shouted for joy, before now NVMe M.2 SSDs were very hard to get hold off as they were primarily made for only the enterprise market and for system integrators. Samsung will soon be releasing a new NVMe SSD, one which uses their faster and more reliable V-NAND and comes in a much more aesthetically pleasing black PCB. 

This SSD will be a true innovator for the SSD market, and it is now available to Pre-order here in the UK. Right now at Overclockers UK you can Pre-order both the 512GB version of this SSD and the 256GB version for the price of £319.99 and £169.99 respectively, which is a pretty reasonable price given that it is cheaper than most other M.2 SSDs and has over 2x the speeds of traditional SATA SSDs. 


Featuring the PCIe Gen.3 x4 interface and supporting the NVMe protocol, the Samsung 950 PRO offers improved random and sequential performance over Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface drives utilizing the legacy Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) protocol. Users of applications that benefit from high input/output operations per second (IOPS) will experience up to four times faster performance than with traditional SATA SSDs.

The 950 PRO will be available in 512 gigabyte (GB) and 256GB storage capacities. The 512GB version delivers sequential read/write speeds of up to 2500 MB/s and 1500 MB/s. Random read performance is up to 300,000 IOPS, with write speeds of up to 110,000 IOPS. It features Samsung's second generation MLC V-NAND 32-layer 128Gb die with UBX controller and magician software.
