  • 2) M.2 is the specification of a form factor for ultra-thin PCs. The M.2 standard allows widths of 12, 16, 22 and 30mm and lengths of 16, 26, 30, 38, 42, 69, 80 and 110mm. Commercially popular M.2 are those with a width of 22mm and lengths of 30, 42, 60, 80 and 110mm. Samsung provides the most popular form factor, which is 22mm x 80mm (i.e., 2280), for the convenience of customers.
  • 3) Sequential and random performance measurements are based on IOmeter1.1.0. Performance may vary based on SSD’s firmware version, system hardware & configuration. Test system configuration: Intel Core i7-7700K @ 4.2GHz, SAMSUNG DDR4 32GB, OS-Windows 10 Build 10240, ChipsetASUS PRIME Z270-A.
  • 4) Sequential and random write performance was measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology being activated. The sequential write performances for the portion of data exceeding over Intelligent TurboWrite buffer size are: 400 MB/s for 250GB, 900 MB/s for 500GB, 1700 MB/s for 1TB and 1750 MB/s for 2TB. The random write performances for the portion of data exceeding over Intelligent TurboWrite buffer size (tested with QD 32 Thread 4) are: 100,000 IOPS for 250GB, 200,000 IOPS for 500GB, 400,000 IOPS for 1TB and 420,000 IOPS for 2TB. Performance may vary depending on SSD’s firmware, system hardware & configuration and other factors.
