Product Description

Samsung 500GB 960 Evo PCIe SSD


The smart choice in NVMe SSDs

If you're looking for the next great advance in PC performance, the Samsung 960 EVO is a smart choice. An NVMe™ interface provides enhanced bandwidth, and a new controller and Samsung's intelligent TurboWrite technology deliver next-generation performance. Included are an advanced maintenance software solution and a 3-year limited warranty, which increase its value.

Raise your performance expectations

The 960 EVO offers the next level of performance in storage for smart consumers who want an experience beyond what the SATA interface can provide. An enhanced bandwidth, provided by the NVMe interface, combined with the new Polaris controller, facilitates sequential R/W speeds up to 3,200/1,900 MB/s and random R/W speeds up to 380/360K IOPS, respectively. Plus, the new Intelligent TurboWrite technology accelerates write speeds even further.

Rest easy with solid reliability

Great performance is not measured by speed alone. How long the performance can be sustained is also important. The 960 EVO holds its own by boasting up to 400 TBW for the 1TB model. Dynamic Thermal Guard prevents overheating, protecting the data and ensuring optimal responsiveness. It's all backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

Manage your drive like magic

The 960 EVO comes with the newly upgraded Magician - an advanced software solution for users to monitor, manage and maintain the drive. 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.
