Closer Look: Samsung 960 PRO m.2 SSD
By moving from the 32-layer V-NAND used in the 950 PRO to 48-layer V-NAND, Samsung was able to dramatically increase the capacity of their m.2 storage products: the top capacity of the 950 PRO, 512GB, now represents the bottom of the lineup for the 960 PRO, which also offers 1 and 2TB models. All are single-sided 2280 form factor (22mm wide, 80mm long) m.2 “sticks”.
The only thing on the back of the PCB is a label.
A small installation and warranty manual is all that’s included with the drive.
It’s worth noting here that as of this writing, even the latest version of Windows 10 doesn’t handle NVMe SSDs in an optimal fashion. For the best performance, especially with high queue-depth random accesses, you should download and install Samsung’s NVMe driver.
