Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.

500GB Samsung 960 Evo, V-NAND, M.2 PCIe Gen 3.0 x4, NVMe 1.1, 3200MB/s Read, 1800MB/s Write, 330K/330K IOPS is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast but do you notice it? I bought this to be the boot drive on a new build. I moved two 1TB SATA SSD's over from my old build which contain my games libraries and just move the game I'm currently playing to this drive. The first thing I couldn't get over is how small it is. My first mechanical drive was 500GB and it was the size of a couple of sardine tins. This fits into a tiny M.2 slot under my graphics card and I hardly notice it. The drive feels very responsive. I benchmarked it using Samsung's own Magician software and it is close to the advertised speeds. My sequential read is over five times faster than my previous SSD's. However I don't really notice it being that much faster in practice. When booting it can only go as fast as the BIOS allows and then has to open my suite of start up apps before I can get to work. I have been monitoring the temperatures using Hardware Monitor and heat doesn't seem to be an issue. I am a water cooler so my case has low airflow and it doesn't cause the drive any problems. In conclusion this is a great product and I love its miniature size. However it doesn't really feel much faster than a conventional SSD. I suspect once you get past a certain speed these thing have diminishing returns. Hope this helps

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very very fast! I typically do a lot of gaming and development, this makes gaming and compiling so MUCH quicker, its amazing! I am getting 1700 write and 2800 read, which is just shy of the advertised specs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than an upgrade from an HDD to SSD If you thought the upgrade from an HDD to an SSD was a huge jump in performance, then you would be shocked at the difference between a SATA SSD and a NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD. Lightning fast startup and general Windows speeds, the only thing slowing my PC startup now is the external mechanical HDDs slow rev-up speeds on bootup. The Samsung Sticker itself is a metal strip for cooling if you wondered why it didn't come with a clear heatsink. You can get the performance benchmarks from the professional reviewers, and they are quite spectacular. Almost double the price of standard SATA SSDs, but you get so much more performance for your pound. Otherwise, it looks good and performs amazingly for quick game loads and everything else. It is quite something to load a BF1 multiplayer map in 10 seconds and be the first into the match. Single player games the same. The Pro version is faster but it's cost it a bit too much to justify it compared to this Evo version. Considering the Evo is already double the £/GB of SATA SSDs, at the moment the Pro is a bit too much (150%ish over the Evo for the same capacity) but it's up to you if you want to go all the way considering it is already high end.
