V-NAND Technology and THE SAMSUNG SSD 950 PRO
Samsung’s unique and innovative V-NAND flash memory architecture is a breakthrough in overcoming the density limitations, performance and endurance of today’s conventional planar NAND architecture. VNAND is fabricated by stacking layers vertically over one another rather than decreasing the cells dimensions and trying to fit itself onto a fixed horizontal space resulting in higher density and better performance utilizing a smaller footprint.

This cutting-edge V-NAND-based NVMe SSD supports PCI Express® Gen 3 x4 lanes, providing a higher bandwidth and lower latency to process a massive amount of more data than previous-generation SATA SSDs. Presented in a compact M.2 form factor, the future-oriented 950 PRO is ideal for professionals who want cutting-edge performance from their high-end PCs and workstations.

Experience next-generation ultimate SSD today
The 950 PRO NVMe SSD is the ultimate flash storage solution, designed with tomorrow's technology today. Providing an enhanced bandwidth, it's ideal for intensive workloads, such as computer-aided design, data analysis and engineering simulations. It outperforms SATA SSDs with 4.5X faster sequential read (2,500 MB/s) and 2.5X faster sequential write speeds (1,500 MB/s). Plus, the 950 PRO boasts random read/write speeds of up to whopping 300K/110K IOPS.

Maximize endurance reliability under heavy workloads

Maximize endurance under heavy workloads
The innovative V-NAND technology designed into the 950 PRO strengthens the endurance of the SSD through insulators that cause less stress and are more resistant to wear, prolonging the lifespan of the SSD. This state-of-the-art technology has been tested for endurance on client systems under heavy workloads over a 5-year warranty period. These tests ensure that the 950 PRO will maintain a high level of sustained performance for long periods of time under heavy workloads.

Save power while maintaining peak performance
If you're in the midst of performing a complex data analysis or engineering simulation on your laptop, the last thing you want to have happen is your battery runs out. Designed to consume 5.7 W at peak workloads, the 950 PRO secures battery life while maintaining superior performance levels. The Active State Power Management (ASPM) mechanism built into the 950 PRO, which is similar to the device sleep mode in a SATA interface, reduces power consumption. In standby mode, the 950 PRO consumes only 2.5 mW of power, half the power consumption of an SATA (compared to 850 PRO) in Device Sleep Mode.

Dynamic Thermal Throttling Protection
In most cases of data transfers, heavy workloads can induce heat and result in high temperatures. Once temperatures reach a threshold, memory performance may malfunction. As the leader in SSD memory solutions, we equipped the 950 PRO with Dynamic Thermal Throttling Protection technology to automatically monitor and maintain optimal operating temperature to reduce the risks of overheating.


This drive is compatible with any server that accepts M.2 x 80mm PCIe drives.
