Samsung has unveiled its next-generation solid-state drive

1 min read

If money isn’t an issue, then Samsung has always been the way to go when it comes to ultra-fast solid-state drives. The company has made several improvements to its SSD technology over the years that have not only increased capacity and speed, but reduced prices to the point where SSDs are now fairly accessible to most people. All of this can be seen in the new 950 PRO, the latest mass-market SSD from Samsung that was unveiled at its annual SSD summit in Seoul. Starting at $199.99 and going on sale next month, the 950 PRO offers read speeds of up to 2500MB/s and write speeds of up to 1500MB/s. 

Samsung has announced its fastest mass-market SSD in the form of the 950 PRO, which will go on sale next month. Over the last few years, Samsung has been developing and improving its solid-state drives and has delivered good products so far. The latest drive from Samsung aims to take this further by being the first Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe*) M.2 form factor SSD based on 2nd generation vertical NAND (V-NAND) technology. Users will need to have a desktop or a laptop which has a M.2 PCIe slot in order to use the 950 PRO SSD. The PCIe Gen.3 x4 specification offers significant improvement over the traditional SATA interface used by other SSDs, however, it does mean that not all computers can make use of the latest Samsung SSD. Samsung also announced that it is working on 3rd generation V-NAND technology which will be used in its products in the near future. The company also revealed that it will be launching the 850 PRO SATA SSD next year, based on this technology with up to 4 TB of storage. The 950 PRO SSD will be available in 256 GB and 512 GB options which will cost $199.99 and $349.99 respectively. Both the drives will go on sale in October.
