Product information: 960 EVO Polaris 1TB M.2 2280 PCI-e 3.0 x4 NVMe Solid State DriveIf you're looking for the next great advance in PC performance, the Samsung 960 EVO is a smart choice. An NVMe™ interface provides enhanced bandwidth, and a new controller and Samsung's intelligent TurboWrite technology deliver next-generation performance. Included are an advanced maintenance software solution and a 3-year limited warranty, which increase its value.
The 960 EVO offers the next level of performance in storage for smart consumers who want an experience beyond what the SATA interface can provide. An enhanced bandwidth, provided by the NVMe interface, combined with the new Polaris controller, facilitates sequential R/W speeds up to 3,200/1,900 MB/s and random R/W speeds up to 380/360K IOPS, respectively. Plus, the new Intelligent TurboWrite technology accelerates write speeds even further*.
Great performance is not measured by speed alone. How long the performance can be sustained is also important. The 960 EVO holds its own by boasting up to 400 TBW* for the 1TB model. Dynamic Thermal Guard prevents overheating, protecting the data and ensuring optimal responsiveness. It's all backed by a 3-year limited warranty**.
