960 Per NVMe M. 2 SSD: ZDNet is giving away two high end SSD by Samsung

960 PRO NVMe M. 2 SSD Samsung with a capacity of 512 GB, as well as 1 and 2 terabytes offers. With a reading performance by up to 3.5 GB/s and a write performance up 2.1 GByte/s NVMe SSD by Samsung are the most efficient storage solutions that can currently be used in desktops or notebooks. In cooperation with Samsung, ZDNet.de is giving away two 512-GB models in more than 300 euros.

so that the 960 PRO NVMe M. 2 SSD can bring their Horsepower to the road, it is with a PCI Express interface specification 3.0 with a transmission speed of x 4 equipped. Thus a theoretical bandwidth of approximately 4 GB / s is available. Thanks to NVMe Protocol and the new Polaris controller, she can also almost completely exploit this bandwidth with read performance of 3.5 GB / s.

hardware requirements similar to like in a formula 1 car requires some conditions, so that the 960 PRO NVMe M. 2 SSD performance can fully develop. In older systems it can be over although one PCI-Express M. 2-adapter in operation, but she achieved is not always their full performance. The combination of chipset and CPU are a limiting factor that can ensure that the transfer rate for sequential access will be almost halved ( gigabyte H67A-UD3H and core i7-2600 k ). This is the 960 PRO NVMe M. 2 SSD but still well faster than any other SSD with SATA AHCI interface . Also affects the limit in only the sequential access. Nearly reaches the performance they achieved in a more modern system with random write-read operations, which are much more important for the everyday performance.


the progress, the Samsung when SSD 960 has made PRO compared to its predecessor SSD 950 PRO, show up particularly at random write accesses. Here, she achieved a result of 1146,0 MB / s in the test with the AS SSD benchmark and thus allows the predecessor model, which only 371,4 MByte/s achieves significantly behind. Random reading the SSD occupies the leading position 960 PRO with close to 2 GByte / s clear.

as benchmark for common SATA AHCI models used the MX300 from crucial. She has no chance against the NVMe competition from Samsung, for this but also costs significantly less. The values for the magnetic hard drive WD3200BEVT show how far the tip of the SSD on base by NVMe Meanwhile performance technically has cleared from traditional hard drives.

960 PRO NVMe M. 2 SSD: basis for a balanced system performance

with the 960 PRO NVMe M. 2 SSD Samsung offers not only the fastest available NVMe model in M. 2 format for client applications, but also with the highest capacity. Therefore, the high end SSD ideal for use in high end workstations and 3D-Spiele-PCs is suitable.

If you one of the two related to the sweepstakes available 960 PRO NVMe M. 2 SSD 512 Gbyte memory more than 300 Euro worth would win, please send us an E-Mail with the subject line: Samsung sweepstakes. Good luck.
