Samsung has introduced 960 EVO and 960 PRO M.2-format consumer SSDs with an NVMe interface and a promised 2TB capacity.
Sammy says these are the fastest M.2 flash drives ever.
They come with up to 1TB capacity, for now, and are built with its 48-layer, 256Gbit, 21nm V-NAND technology.
We expect that 64-layer V-NAND will be needed to reach the coming 2TB capacity.
The M.2 format makes them suitable for thin notebooks and all-in-one desktop systems – like iMacs.
Both models are operated by a 5-core Samsung Polaris controller, and they have a PCIe gen 3 4-lane connection.
