Know More Information About Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD

Are you desiring any SSD after M.2/PCle NVMe SSD performance? And if you had enough cash then it is better to adopt Samsung 950 Pro. Samsung is considered to one of the world largest producer of NAND flash memory. It is the only firm to sell the SSD drives with a controller and a firmware that is developed in house using NAND flash memory i.e. manufactured at its own plants. Samsung 950 Pro uses Samsung 3D V-NAND technology which means the transistors that make up the memory can be arranged both horizontally and vertically in layers. Samsung V-NAND is the advanced product which is widely using all around the world. It can be treated as TLC (triple level cell or 3-bit), MLC (multi-level or 2-bit), and SLC (single level or 1-bit). But in case of 950 Pro Samsung treats it as MLC and the results are quite good like 2GBps sequential reading and 1.5GBps sequential writing.

Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD is going to be available in two capacities i.e. 256 GB and 512 GB. The 256 GB version is capable of 2.2GBps read and 900MBps write, whereas the 512 GB version is capable of 2.5GBps read and 1.5GBps write transfer speeds. The 256GB version is also capable of 270k IOPS read and 85K IOPS write, while 512GB version is capable of 300K IOPS read and 110K IOPS write. Now-a-days SSD vendors are playing an important role. If we took the results of synthetic benchmark real world copy tests Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD performance is much better than Kingston HyperX Savage.

The module of Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD is coated with black color and looks good. It is thin and at the top of it, it is covered by a sticker which hides the actual chips, and the bottom of SSD has circuit board pattern. The connector end looks like a shrunken expansion card. Mother board will have three screw posts to accommodate the modules of different lengths. It is very easy to plug M.2 cards into any motherboard, but care should be taken, not to lose any tiny screw because it is pre-attached one.

Samsung 950 Pro NVMe SSD can be available in very low price. One can afford 199 U.S dollars for 256 GB and 349 U.S dollars for 512 GB. 950 Pro offers five years warranty on the drives and even higher terabytes written (TBW) rating than older SSD’s i.e. it offers 200 TBW for the 256 GB models and 400 TBW for the 512 GB drives.
