The new, best thing in storage technology, NVMe, which has been hot property in the server market due to it's extreme transfer speeds, has now reached the desktop market. The Samsung SM951 M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD is the new performance leader in M.2 form factor SSD's. Providing up to 2150MB/s read and 1260MB/s write sequential data transfer rates, along with astounding random I/O ratings of 300k reads and 100k writes.

The Samsung SM951 (NVMe) is compatible as a boot device in a wide variety of systems. This includes Z170/Z97/X99 based motherboards, modern notebooks, and tiny form factor PC's like the Intel NUC. It can also act as additional super high speed storage in almost any desktop with a spare PCIe slot when combined with a PCIe adapter.

PLEASE NOTE: Some M.2 motherboards only support SATA 6Gbps speeds or PCI-e x 2 lanes. You need to make sure your board supports NVMe and PCI-E x4 Lanes to get the full speed from this SSD.

A fantastic performer

I did a lot of reading before purchasing this SSD because it's easy to view it with suspicion.

As far as I can tell, this is Samsung's OEM version of the 950 Pro. What this means is it does work with the official Samsung NVMe Windows driver, and you should use it just as soon as you have Windows up and running using the standard Microsoft NVMe. It won't work 100% with Magician, though. It detects the drive, but won't allow Magician to do any magic.

Even so, this drive is incredibly fast. CrystalDisk rated it at 2200/1300 using the Samsung NVMe driver. There also doesn't seem to be any heat issues with it sitting on the back of my motherboard.

You want to buy this drive over the ANCI versions and definitely instead of the inferior PM951 (lower quality NAND in those). You also need a motherboard with full support for PCIe 3.0 x4. For reference, I opted to use:

Gigabyte GA-Z170N Gaming 5 Intel Z170 Mini=ITX. OC reference MB-540-GI)

tl;dr - click buy if you have a motherboard with support!
