Samsung SM961 MZVPW256HEGL

Samsung SM961 MZVPW256HEGL is a solid state drive with a capacity of 256 GB. It relies on the modern NVMe interface for data transfer.

SSDs are way faster than conventional hard drives, however they do not offer the same price-capacity ratio just yet.

Notebookcheck says: 

... its performance was phenomenal ...

... While 256 GB is plenty for an Ultrabook, it can be considered the bare minimum for a gaming machine ...
