Enhanced bandwidth beyond the SATA interface provided by the NVMe interface, combined with the new Polaris controller facilitates sequential Read/Write speeds up to 3,200 MB/s and 1,500 MB/s respectively. Plus, the new Intelligent TurboWrite technology accelerates write speeds even further.
The 960 EVO holds its own by boasting up to 100 TBW* for the 250GB capacity model and is backed by a 3-year limited warranty. Dynamic Thermal Guard prevents overheating, protecting your data and ensuring optimal performance.
Features and specifications are subject to change without prior notification.
*Actual usable capacity may be less (due to formatting, partitioning, operating system, applications or otherwise)
**Performance may vary based on system hardware & configuration
***Actual power consumption may vary depending on system hardware & configuration
Please Note: While numerous motherboards support M.2 drives, they often restrict the amount of data that can be moved to and from the drive via the M.2 interface resulting in slower than expected speeds (around 50%) due to running at only PCI-e 2 speeds. To enable these drives to work at full speed, the M.2 interface on your motherboard must support PCI-e 3 and have four lanes (many only support two at this time). Later X99 boards and Z170 boards and newer usually support 4 lanes.
