Product Description

Samsung 960 PRO V-NAND M.2 SSD - 512GB


An SSD that changes everything

Experience unprecedented performance for heavy workloads and engineering applications with the high-capacity, highly reliable Samsung 960 PRO SSD. Designed for high-end PCs and workstations, the 960 PRO boasts a cutting-edge 48-layer Samsung V-NAND-based architecture that delivers next-generation performance in a compact M.2 form factor.

Experience next-gen performance

The NVMe™ interface of the 960 PRO supports PCIe® Gen 3 x4 lanes for an enhanced bandwidth and lower latency than SATA SSDs. You can experience massive sequential R/W (read/write) speeds up to 3,500/2,100 MB/s and random R/W speeds up to 440/360K IOPS, respectively. This superb performance is enabled by an optimized package design.

Break storage limits

Samsung provides advanced end-to-end integration, fine-tuning each component for optimal results. Individual chips are optimized to pack more in a package to maximize capacity. The 960 PRO enables you to store up to 2TB, which is unprecedented for NVMe SSDs.

Bank on solid reliability

The 960 PRO boasts 1.2 PBW for the 2TB model. For further reliability, DTG (Dynamic Thermal Guard) monitors and adjusts the temperature of the SSD, protecting data and achieving optimal responsiveness. Plus, the 960 PRO is backed by a 5-year limited warranty.

Manage your drive like magic

With the newly upgraded Magician advanced software solution, you can manage, monitor and maintain your 960 PRO like an IT professional. Magician provides personalized firmware checking and additional functions tailored for individual user's drives. It even updates the firmware automatically to make sure that the drive's performance stays up to date.
