Samsung SSD 960 Pro 512 GB m.2

Samsung SSD 960 Pro 512 GB m.2 is a solid state drive with a capacity of 512 GB. It relies on the modern M.2 (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: 

... one of the fastest PCIe models that is currently available ...

... wipes the floor with almost all the competitors ...

... Sequential read and write rates are measurably faster than the Samsung SM951 NVMe SSDs ...
