Posted by: STAFF
The M.2 form factor was originally called the Next Generation Form factor (NGFF) for a good reason and it is without a doubt also my personal favourite form factor. Today I’m taking a closer look at Apacer’s Z280 solid state drive which is just such an M.2 2280 size drive that also uses the latest NVMe standard for the best performance in your system.

Samsung SSD 960 EVO NVMe M.2 Review: Ultra Fast, Affordable Storage
     Tue, Nov 15 2016 | 4:44P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Samsung initially announced the SSD 960 PRO and SSD 960 EVO NVMe drives a few months back, we were eager to get our hands on them for some in-house testing. Their specifications, which included transfer speeds in excess of 3.2GB/s, were among the best we’d seen to date for consumer-class M.2-based solid state drives. Last month, when we were able to dig into the flagship Samsung SSD 960 PRO, we came away impressed. So impressed, that we gave the drive an Editor’s Choice award. Today, we get to take a close look at the more affordable Samsung SSD 960 EVO. Like the SSD 960 PRO, the EVO is packing Samsung’s latest 5-core Polaris controller, but it features 3rd-gen 3-bit MLC V-NAND flash memory and a newly revamped version of TurboWrite. Though the SSD 960 EVO family’s pricing places it firmly in the mainstream segment for NVMe-based solid state drives, its specifications should appeal to performance enthusiasts...

Samsung 960 EVO 1TB M.2 PCIe SSD Review
     Tue, Nov 15 2016 | 3:44P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Announced at the same time as the high-end SSD 960 PRO, but arriving a month later, the newly-launched SSD 960 EVO is Samsung’s attempt to push the M.2 PCIe NVMe format SSD into the mainstream market. The EVO uses the same Polaris controller as the 960 PRO but combines it with Samsung’s 3rd Generation 48-layer 3-bit (TLC) V-NAND compared with the 2-bit MLC V-NAND used by the PRO.

Samsung SSD 960 EVO Review – 250GB and 1TB NVMe M.2 Drives Tested
     Tue, Nov 15 2016 | 3:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If the Samsung SSD 960 PRO series that we looked at last month was too expensive for you, sit back and take a look at the Samsung SSD 960 EVO series. The Samsung SSD 960 PRO was aimed at enthusiasts that want the best storage drive possible, while the Samsung SSD 960 EVO is aimed at the masses that are looking for good performance without breaking the bank. The Samsung 960 EVO is a PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD that comes in a single-sided M.2 2280 form factor. It is currently available in three capacities: 250GB ($129.99), 500GB ($249.99), and 1TB ($479.99). Each of the drives are capable of 3,200 MB/s sequential read while the sequential write performance varies and tops out at up to 1,900 MB/s....

Samsung’s announcement of the 960 Series SSDs
     Tue, Nov 15 2016 | 2:44P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Samsung’s announcement of the 960 Series SSDs, I have been patiently waiting not for the 960 PRO (reviewed a few weeks back), but for the 960 EVO. It is the EVO, in my opinion, that is the big release here. Sure, it doesn’t have the quad Hexadecimal Die Packages, Package-on-Package DRAM and ultimate higher capacity of the PRO, but what it *does* potentially have is class leading performance / price in the M.2 form factor. Just as we all wanted lower cost SSDs in the 2.5” SATA form factor, M.2 is seeing greater adoption across laptops and desktop motherboards, and it’s high time we started seeing M.2 SSDs come down in price.
