Samsung NVMe SSD 960 EVO
The new Samsung NVMe SSD 960 EVO expands Samsung’s Client PC NVMe SSD line-up and brings the technology to the mainstream market. The 960 EVO will particularly appeal to those customers that want to discover next generation PC performance. It offers ultimate performance levels and through its availability in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB capacities in combination with its solid reliability make it the smart customer choice.

Raising performance expectations
Building on the PCIe Gen. 3.0 x 4 lane interface, the 960 EVO, in combination with Samsung’s advanced 3rd generation 3-bit MLC V-NAND Flash, the newly developed Polaris controller and launch of the Intelligent TurboWrite technology, is able to offer sequential read performance of 3,200 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 1,900 MB/s. It achieves random performance of up to 380,000 IOPS and 360,000 IOPS for read and write operations respectively. This Samsung SSD 960 EVO M.2 Data Sheet Rev.1.0 (October 2016) 2 DATA SHEET Rev. 1.0, October, 2016 PROPRIETARY means that the 960 EVO’s performance trails only the 960 PRO as the world’s most advanced client PC SSD.

Resting easy with solid reliability
Based on Samsung’s extensive experience with 3-bit MLC Flash NAND, now in the 3rd Generation of its acclaimed V-NAND Flash technology, the 960 EVO promises to deliver extensive endurance at up to 400TB of Total Bytes Written and/or a warranty of 3 years. The 960 EVO also delivers high sustained performance, lower power consumption and an innovative heat dissipating label that prolongs peak data transferability by more than 25% relative to the 2-bit MLC based 950 PRO.

Improved thermal solutionsIn most cases of data transfers, heavy workloads induce heat. Once temperatures reach a threshold, memory performance may be adversely affected. As the leader in SSD memory solutions, the 960 EVO adopts a new heat spreader for dissipating heat more efficiently during heavy workload use. It achieves this by integrating a thin copper film and because copper is a great heat conductor it helps to shed heat faster than would be possible without the label.

Advanced data encryption
The 960 EVO provides the same data encryption features as other Samsung SATA SSDs. Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology will help keep data safe at all times. It includes an AES 256-bit hardwarebased encryption engine to ensure that your personal files remain secure. Being hardware-based, the encryption engine secures your data without performance degradation that you may experience with a software-based encryption. Also, the 960EVO is compliant with advanced security management solutions (TCG Opal).

Samsung Magician Software
The 960 EVO comes with the newly upgraded Samsung Magician software — 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.


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