Unmatched SSDs for PCs and Workstations
Samsung SM961 SSDs offer the next level of performance in storage for smart consumers who want an experience beyond what the SATA interface can provide.

Featuring the Polaris controller, this OEM-targeted client SSD provides users with enhanced bandwidth, thanks to an NVMe interface, that delivers sequential R/W speeds up to 3,100/1,400MB/s and random R/W speeds up to 330K/280K IOPS, respectively with exceptional reliability and minimal power drain.

The SM961 maximizes compatibility using 48-layer MLC V-NAND flash that packs up to 1TB of storage into a single-sided M.2 2280 form factor to fit notebooks, 2-in-1 systems, and tablets as devices continue to get thinner.

Ideal for heavy performance-centric uses, such as multi-tasking, complex data manipulation, and highperformance gaming. Upgrading to an SM961 might be the best computer upgrade you ever make.
