How is this different from a standard SSD?
The Samsung 960 EVO SSD uses an M.2 connection to attach to your PC system motherboard or internal expansion card. The benefit of this new connection is the added ability for the SSD to use the PCIe bandwidth for faster speeds and better performance over standard SATA III solid state drives.

What are the M.2 SSD’s benefits?
The Samsung 960 M.2 EVO SSD has been designed with extreme performance and reliability in mind. Suitable for use with the latest motherboards which feature the M.2 NVMe slot, the Samsung Pro EVO can also be used in compatible laptop computers.

How fast can I transfer data on this SSD?
The Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVMe solid state drive uses Samsung third generation V-NAND based storage system and TurboWrite technology to achieve extremely quick sequential transfer speeds of up to 3,200MBps write and 1,500MBps read speeds. This means that you’re not left hanging around while transferring large data files or loading system programs.

Keep your data safe
The Samsung 960 EVO series uses 256-bit hardware encryption to keep all of your stored files safe. This is the same durable security as featured on all Samsung SSDs, and 256-bit hardware based encryption keeps your stored data safe and is compatible with advanced security platforms.

Monitor and manage with the Samsung Magician
The Samsung 960 EVO can be used with the Samsung Magician to monitor and manage drive performance, customise your drive to suit your usage profiles and ensure that your SSD is running the latest firmware – keeping your SSD in tip top shape.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd fastest NVMe I bought this just over a week ago. What a fantastic piece of kit! This is currently the 2nd fastest NVMe SSD in the market place. You'll obviously need a motherboard with an NVMe slot and a UEFI bios. Although you can get a PCIE adapter unless you have a UEFI bios to set up the SSD as a gpt disk then you cannot boot from it. Windows 10 loads in seconds and benchmark software shows 3300 MB/s reads and 1500 MB/s writes. It is so much faster than a SATA 3 disk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast Drive This is the second one of these I've bought for my system. These units are blindingly fast and make an excellent boot drive. Although much faster than a standard SSD you wont really notice any huge difference over a standard SSD in the real world unless moving massive files around, although my boot time is now almost instant. The main attraction for me is the tiny form factor and clutter free installation. Make sure you have good ventilation in your case as these drives do run hot and will throttle back if to warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Fast- Easy to install - No issues I bought this for a new build gaming PC I made for my partner for christmas. I had never used this form of SSD before but had read good reviews. Super simple to install into the motherboard and one of the fastest windows installations I have ever seen. Windows now boots effortlessly before the screen even has time to "warm" up.

would this drive be compatible with an asus z170-k motherboard?

Asked by: fbgoneton
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item, it would be best to check with Asus what support the motherboard has.
