Description

The Samsung PM961 M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD is an extremely fast data carrier that follows in the footsteps of its already successful predecessor PM951. New to this storage medium are the high-quality TLC chips and the 3D-NAND from our own production. Just like the Polaris controller from Samsung, which provides less waste heat and thus avoids power throttling due to too high temperatures. Read and write speeds and maximum memory capacity have also improved.

M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD with brute read and write speed
With the introduction of the M.2 slot, for connecting SSDs in modular design directly to the mainboard, the already very fast solid state drives achieved a further performance leap, since in most cases this modern slot is no longer connected via the comparatively slow SATA 6G interface with a maximum net data rate of around 550 MB/s, but via several lines of the PCI Express bus of the mainboard. Samsung is once again mixing up this premium class of significantly faster SSDs in M.2 format and presents the PM961, the successor of its rapid predecessor PM951, which now features Samsung TLC 3D-NAND, a Samsung Polaris controller, faster transfer rates and higher capacities.

Since the first final specification of the AHCI protocol for data transmission via SATA interface was already developed in 2004 with mechanical hard disks (HDDs) in mind, it comes as no surprise, that from a technical point of view this now archaic standard is unsuitable for modern flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) - especially if they are connected to the mainboard and CPU via significantly faster PCI Express lanes rather than via SATA.

For this reason, the contemporary NVM Express protocol (mostly abbreviated as NVMe) was created, which was designed entirely for SSDs connected via PCI Express and their hardware potential, which had not been fully utilized up to now, and therefore enables more parallelized data access operations (IOPS), higher transfer rates, lower latencies and far lower command queues. The lower access latencies in conjunction with power-saving modes optimized for PCI Express also result in an overall increase in energy efficiency. The Samsung PM961 M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD continues to take advantage of this new standard and convinces with its performance.

The new Samsung Polaris controller of this latest generation hyper-fast drive, which comes in 2280 format (22 mm wide, 80 mm long), supports four PCI Express lanes of standard 3.0 (max. about 3,900 MB/s possible!). In combination with the built-in Samsung TLC-3D-NAND, the 256 GB version of the Samsung PM961-NVMe offered here offers unprecedented performance potential: With up to 2,800 MB/s (read) and 1,100 MB/s (write), the M.2Drive under PCIe 3.0 and achieves fantastic IOPS values of 250,000 in 4KB read and 180,000 in 4KB write.

Data storage properties

Data storage properties

A data storage device is a device for recording (storing) information (data). Recording can be done using virtually any form of energy, spanning from manual muscle power in handwriting, to acoustic vibrations in phonographic recording, to electromagnetic energy modulating magnetic tape and optical discs. A storage device may hold information, process information, or both. A device that only holds information is a recording medium. Devices that process information (data storage equipment) may either access a separate portable (removable) recording medium or a permanent component to store and retrieve information.

Notebook

A laptop, also called a notebook, is a personal computer for mobile use. A laptop integrates most of the typical components of a desktop computer, including a display, a keyboard, a pointing device (a touchpad, also known as a trackpad, and/or a pointing stick) and speakers into a single unit. A laptop is powered by mains electricity via an AC adapter, and can be used away from an outlet using a rechargeable battery.

Read transfer speed
i

Read transfer speed

Data transfer rate or just transfer rate is the average number of bits, characters, or blocks per unit time passing between equipment in a data transmission system.

Transfer rates can serve several functions. The response time can help a network administrator pinpoint where slowdowns and potential hangups exist in a network. By analyzing data transfer rates and adjusting accordingly as a preventative measure, a system can be made more efficient and will be more prepared to handle extra bandwidth constraints in times of heavy usage.

Testing mechanisms such as fiber optic loopbacks can assist in measuring and conducting data transfer tests.

Memory type (NAND)

NAND flash is a type of flash memory that is manufactured using the so-called NAND technology. The term "NAND technology" refers to the serial arrangement of the individual memory cells: These consist of special MOS-FETs, which are connected like a NAND gate. NAND flashes are mainly designed for large storage volumes; they are used in USB sticks, flash memory cards (e.g. CF and SD cards) and in practically all MP3 players based on semiconductor memory.

IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second, pronounced i-ops) is a common performance measurement used to benchmark computer storage devices like hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD), and storage area networks (SAN). As with any benchmark, IOPS numbers published by storage device manufacturers do not guarantee real-world application performance.

Kann ich die m.2 mit dem ASUS Hyper M.2 X4 PCI-E Mini Adapter auf einem H87 Plus Mainboard von Asus installieren und das OS darüber laufen lassen.
Weis da jemand grad ob das funktioniert?

Mit dem Adapter "digitec.ch/de/s1/product/de..." klappt das wunderbar. Windows 10 bringt die Treiber bereits mit, bei Windows 7 müssen die NVMe Treiber dem Installationmedium vorgängig mitgegeben werden.

Mein Laptop (HP Pavilion 15 Gaming) erkennt diese SSD nicht, obwohl sie in den M.2 Slot passt (sollte M und B kompatibel sein?!). Warum funktioniert das nicht? Welche SSD muss ich verwenden?

so wie es aussieht gemäss diesem link untersützt dein system möglicherweise m2 ssd nur auf sata basis

Top, avec un carte-mère adaptée.

Installé la version 256Go sur une carte-mère Asus Z270.
Windows 10 + Lightroom + Potoshop + toutes les applications Office occupent un peu plus de la moitié de la capacité.
Pour la photo, c'est génial!
