Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVMe SSD Review (250GB/1TB)
     Fri, Nov 25 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month we took a look at the best performing SSD, Samsung's 960 PRO. Packed with Samsung's latest MLC V-NAND, new Polaris controller, and put together with their engineering expertise, it easily sped off to the top of our charts. Not only that, but it did so without even utilizing their latest NVMe 2.0 driver. The 960 Pro is the enthusiast class SSD to get if you are looking for the best of the best. With that being said, Samsung has also released a new mainstream SSD which, based on the spec sheet, looks like it packs quite the punch. It is the Samsung 960 EVO and it could be the mainstream SSD to buy if you are looking for top performance for a cheaper cost.

Posted by: STAFF
With only $195, the Zotac GTX 1060 Mini 3 GB is one of the cheapest GTX 1060s around. Yet it still packs enough performance for 1080p gaming, even though it lacks the bells and whistles we've seen on other more expensive products. Only the cooler could be a bit better for lower temperatures and fan-noise.
