Samsung has announced the 950 PRO, a high speed M.2 SSD. At the start there is two storage options, 256 and 512GB.
The new drives use the M.2 connection and attached to a PCI-E 3.0 x4 slot, they can reach the speeds of up to 2,500MB/s read and 1,500MB/s write. The 950 PRO is based on the second generation MLC V-NAND technology and it has 32 layers of 128Gb chips.
The drives will be available in October for $200 for the 256GB version and $350 for the 512GB model. A 1TB version will come later this year but it’ll use even more advanced 48-layer design and the new 3rd generation chips.
