Samsung 960 EVO Polaris NVMe 1.2 M.2 Solid State Drives

- Replaced by the Samsung 970 EVO Phoenix NVMe 1.3 M.2 Solid State Drives

The Samsung 960 EVOs are a more cost effective range of M.2 SSD compared to the 960 PRO, but still offer excellent performance with read and write speeds of up to 3,200 and 1,900 MB/sec.

If you're looking for the next great advance in PC performance, the Samsung 960 EVO is a smart choice. An NVMe interface provides enhanced bandwidth, and a new controller and Samsung's intelligent TurboWrite technology deliver next-generation performance. Included are an advanced maintenance software solution and a 3-year limited warranty, which increase its value.


  1. Cost effective super fast M.2 SSD
  2. NVMe 1.2 Host Controller Interface
  3. Offers sequential read and write speeds of up to 3,200 and 1,900 MB/sec
  4. Available in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB
  5. Three year warranty

The 960 EVO offers the next level of performance in storage for smart consumers who want an experience beyond what the SATA interface can provide. An enhanced bandwidth, provided by the NVMe interface, combined with the new Polaris controller, facilitates sequential R/W speeds up to 3,200/1,900 MB/s and random R/W speeds up to 380/360K IOPS, respectively. Plus, the new Intelligent TurboWrite technology accelerates write speeds even further.

Great performance is not measured by speed alone. How long the performance can be sustained is also important. The 960 EVO holds its own by boasting up to 400 TBW* for the 1TB model. Dynamic Thermal Guard prevents overheating, protecting the data and ensuring optimal responsiveness. It's all backed by a 3-year limited warranty.

The 960 EVO comes with the newly upgraded Magician - an advanced software solution for users to monitor, manage and maintain the drive. Magician provides personalised firmware checking and additional functions tailored for individual user's drives. It even updates the firmware automatically to make sure that the drive's performance stays up to date.
