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.
Save power while maintaining peak performance
The 950 PRO is up to 1.5 times* 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 by over 4.5 times in sequential read and by over 2.5 times in sequential write, delivering the speeds of 2,500MB/s and 1,500MB/s respectively.*
Level up to unmatched performance, power efficiency and endurance
This cutting-edge V-NAND-based NVMe SSD supports PCI Express** Gen 3 x4 lanes, providing a higher bandwidth and lower latency to process significantly more data than SATA SSDs*. Presented in a compact M.2 form factor, the next-generation 950 PRO is ideal for professionals using high-end PCs and workstations.
