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 MB/s and 2,100 MB/s respectively.
Samsung V-NAND Technologies:
Shedding Light on a Whole New Standard of Capacity and Performance
Samsung V-NAND technology overcomes the capacity limitations of traditional 2 Dimensional NAND technology with its revolutionary 3D vertical design architecture.
V-NAND also applies innovative Charge Trap Flash (CTF) technology which prevents data corruption caused by cell-to-cell interference. The synergy of both structural and material innovations leads to improved speed, power efficiency, and endurance.
