Experience a next-generation SSD today

Equipped with the enhanced bandwidth of the NVMe interface, the 950 PRO is ideal for intensive workloads, such as computer-aided design, data analysis and engineering simulations. It outperforms SATA SSDs by over 4.5 times in sequential read and by over 2.5 times in sequential write, delivering the speeds of 2,500 MB/s and 1,500 MB/s respectively.*

* This reflects the maximum performance of 950 PRO 512 GB compared to 850 PRO 512 GB.
Results may vary based on the user environment.

Save power while maintaining peak performance

Save power while maintaining peak performance

If you're in the midst of performing a complex data analysis or engineering simulation on your laptop, you surely don't want to run out your battery. Compared to SATA SSD power consumption, the 950 PRO is up to 1.5 times* more power efficient, so your battery will last longer and maintain superior performance levels.

* Based on internal 10GB file power consumption tests using a 512GB capacity 850 PRO and 950 PRO. Results may vary based on the user environment.

Maximize endurance under heavy workloads

Maximize endurance under heavy workloads

The innovative V-NAND technology in the 950 PRO increases endurance and prolongs the lifespan with insulators that cause less stress and are more resistant to wear under heavy client workloads over a 5-year period.* The 950 PRO also features Dynamic Thermal Throttling Protection technology, which controls the temperature of the device to reduce overheating and maintain a high level of sustained performance.

* 5 years or TBW (256GB: 200 TB, 512GB: 400 TB), whichever comes faster.
