Maximize endurance under heavy workloads

The innovative V-NAND technology in the 950 PRO increases endurance and prolongs the lifespan with insulators that cause less stress and are more resistant to wear under heavy client workloads when compared to Planar NAND over a 5-year period.* The 950 PRO also features Dynamic Thermal Throttling Protection technology, which controls the temperature of the device to reduce overheating and maintain a high level of sustained performance.

Maximize endurance under heavy workloads
Save power while maintaining peak performance

Save power while maintaining peak performance

The 950 PRO is more power efficient*, so your battery will last longer and maintain superior performance levels over a longer period to time compared to SATA SSD.

Experience a next-generation SSD today

Equipped with the enhanced bandwidth of the NVMe interface, the 950 PRO is ideal for intensive workloads, such as computer-aided design, data analysis and engineering simulations. It outperforms SATA SSDs in sequential read and write speeds, delivering the speeds of 2,200MB/s and 900MB/s respectively.*
