The smart choice for entry-level NVMe SSD users who want to discover next-generation PC performance for gaming and graphics.
Designed for tech enthusiasts and professionals seeking unprecedented workstation and PC performance for CAD engineering or data simulations.
The 960 PRO and 960 EVO can help you get there. Designed for tech enthusiasts and professionals, the 960 PRO delivers unprecedented workstation and PC performance for CAD engineering or data simulations. The 960 EVO, meanwhile, delivers next-generation PC performance for entry-level gamers and graphics enthusiasts. Each delivers the power of performance through Samsung NVMe PCIe Gen 3 x 4 memory, packaged in an M.2 form factor with maximum storage capacity. It’s performance beyond any SSD you’ve ever experienced, enabling you to do more than ever before.
The 960 PRO delivers peak sequential read and write speeds of 3,500 MB/s and 2,100 MB/s, respectively. The 960 EVO delivers sequential read and write speeds that reach peaks of 3,200 MB/s and 1,900MB/s, respectively.
The new Intelligent TurboWrite technology makes its debut in the 960 EVO and accelerates the sequential write speed by creating an SLC write buffer in the SSD. This technology intelligently measures the user’s workloads, and if the workload exceeds the buffer size, the buffer is adjusted accordingly up to 42 GB.
Samsung’s exclusive 5-core Polaris controller is optimized for NVMe-based SSDs for more efficient data processing performance. One core is dedicated to processing from the host system and the controller resulting in faster data processing, while the other four cores are allocated to the NAND.
The 960 PRO and 960 EVO provide a more reliable thermal dissipation solution with an improved Dynamic Thermal Guard (DTG) and a new heat spreader: a thin, copper film-layered label. This feature helps in reducing the temperature of the SSD when it reaches a certain threshold, protecting the data and the drive.
The new 48-layer Samsung V-NAND and the four-NAND package landing design offer optimal layout for the single M.2 (2280) form factor, achieving the world’s first 2TB NVMe M.2 (2280) SSD in the 960 PRO. It also includes a PoP design that integrates the DRAM and Polaris controller into a single package, allowing more space for NAND.
Samsung’s Magician software provides ease of monitoring, managing and maintaining performance and reliability through an intuitive UI/UX. In addition, the Magician software introduces the new Secure File Erase and Magic Vault feature
