Raise your performance expectations

The 960 EVO offers the next level of performance in storage for smart consumers who want an experience beyond what the SATA interface can provide. An enhanced bandwidth, provided by the NVMe interface, combined with the new Polaris controller, facilitates sequential R/W speeds up to 3,200/1,900 MB/s and random R/W speeds up to 380/360K IOPS, respectively. Plus, the new Intelligent TurboWrite technology accelerates write speeds even further*.
*Sequential performance measurements based on CrystalDiskMark 5.0.2/IOmeter 1.1.0 and random performance measurements based on IOmeter 1.1.0.Performance may vary based on the SSD`s firmware version,system hardware and configuration.Test system configuration: Intel® Core i7-6700K CPU@4.0 GHz,DDR4 1,700 MHz 16 GB,OS-Window 10 Pro x64,Chipset-ASROCK Z170 EXTREME 7
*Sequential Write performance measurements based on Intelligent TurboWrite technology.The sequential write performances after Intelligent TurboWrite region are 300 MB/s(250 GB),600 MB/s(500 GB) and 1,200 MB/s(1 TB).

Rest easy with solid reliability

Great performance is not measured by speed alone. How long the performance can be sustained is also important. The 960 EVO holds its own by boasting up to 400 TBW* for the 1 TB model. Dynamic Thermal Guard prevents overheating, protecting the data and ensuring optimal responsiveness. It's all backed by a 3-year limited warranty**.
*TBW : Terabytes Written **Samsung's warranty does not cover any costs and expenses relating to SSDs' overhaul / assembly and data recovery for repairs or replacements.
