These are fast.
If you thought that Samsung 950 Pro was fast, this is on another level. The 960 EVO is quite a bit faster than the 950 Pro was and the 960 Pro is substantially faster than both. The 960 EVO has a fantastic price point ($125 for the 250GB) that almost any gamer could afford. The 960 Pro is expensive ($300 for the 512GB) but it’s top of the heap, there isn’t much out there that is faster (3000 MB/S Read) than it without adding a few zeros behind the price tag. Switching back to a workstation running a SATA Samsung 850 Evo solid-state seems like a huge step back at this point. I would recommend this to any gamer or pro developer that wants faster load times.
I currently run the 960 Pro 1 TB in my personal gaming system.
