Samsung’s hard drive achieves 2,500MB/s read speeds

Posted September 23, 2015

Samsung’s announced its latest hard drive — the 950 Pro SSD which marks an important transition for Samsung from advanced host controller interface (AHCI) to non-volatile memory express (NVMe). It’s an M.2 form-factor SSD using Samsung’s vertical NAND, with read speeds hitting 2,500MB/s read speeds.


The Samsung 950 Pro M.2 boasts read speeds of 2,500MB/s, write speeds of 1,500MB/s and consumes 5.7W of power on average. The 512GB version will cost $350, where as the 256GB drive is $200. The drives come with a 5-year warranty. Both drives are expected to become available in October.


The one limitation that does exist right now for the 950 Pro is driver support. Samsung’s NVMe driver will work on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. However, Windows Server and Linux users will have to wait a few weeks.
