    If you just purchased a 960 EVO or Pro series NVMEs SSD from Samsung, well Samsung is working on a 980 series already. The new Next-Gen PM981 just appeared online. ...

    Great disappointment I do not see a difference in speed between 981 and 960

    This is a OEM version, the final pruduct will be better, like its was with the SM961 and 960 PRO/EVO

    But the bottleneck will be always the processor now with thoses speeds.

    With higher core counts on the Cpu you still do not see much of an improvement. This type of drive / storage is only useful for shifting large blocks of data fast not much use for a OS drive.

    I agree with you but with frequency OC yes, even with memory OC and tighter timings.

    No, we won't need new motherboards until PICe gen 4 devices are on the market. If your motherboards supports the 960 then the 980 should be plug and play.

    results are still not very good at 500GB
    there is no difference between 960 and 981
    I do not understand why they published such bad results for 981

    you have to wait for PCIE 4.0 or PCI-E 3.0 X8

    What are you blind? Or you just trolling? I say that's a good ass price for a 1TB nvme pcie ssd. Also the rr iops is 110k more and the sw speed is 600 MB's faster.

    I've been waiting for news on the 970/980 ssds for ages.

    I've been planning to buy a 2TB 960 but read at the start of august that the new ones might be around the corner but have heard nothing since.

    The 950 and 960 were out by this time in the last 2 years so given that there is literally no news so far on the proper 970/980 pro for example...I just wonder how much longer I will have to wait.

    Most likely Q1 next year.

    OEM comes before 980pro by a few months.

    NO I think you're a publicist
    1. Who needs 1GB to install a Windows system?
    2. I can install RAID0 with 256GB PRO960
    And will cost me 50% less and I will get 3000MB / 3000MB
    do not forget that the price of 960 went down

    @dfsdfs1112

    Someone is moving the goal posts...and someone who owns a gtx480 is going to raid 2 m.2 sata drives....yeah not happening.

    Does your motherboard to match that ancient gpu even have m.2 slots? And if it does, you are going to use likely all of your motherboards m.2 slots just for the smallest capacity boot drive in raid money can buy, what a waste of money.

    Drive speeds go up with drive capacity, the 256gb drive is the slowest of them all, also with the lowest rated endurance of them all, why would you raid 2 of the slowest, smallest and lowest endurance drives of the series,l which takes up 2 slots and 2x 4x pci lanes....just for a boot drive.

    Gee golly gosh those boot times on that drive that will fit zero games will be mighty impressive. If you are using it for compression or video conversion you might even be able to fit a single short video on it :D....oh but in record time of course.

    The drives in this article compared to the 960pro 256gb are 440,000 IOPS vs the 85,000 IOPS and 2400gb/s vs 900gb/s write and 3200mb/s vs 2200mb/s

    Oh goodie goodie goodie *rubs hands wildly*

    Can't wait for the nextgen to appear so prices on existing 960 EVO drop, or the new "980 EVO?" being faster, cooler at similar price with today's 960.
