Samsung SSD 950 Pro M.2 512GB MZ-V5P512BW Review
If you’re looking to build a high-end computer, you definitely need to have an eye on the Samsung SSD 950 Pro M.2 512GB MZ-V5P512BW solid state drive. A performance-oriented PC should make the most out of each part, and the storage space is not an exception. Generally, people might feel that a 7200RPM hard disk drive would be enough, and they’d rather spend money on several terabytes of drive space, without actually needing it. A solid state drive is usually the perfect solution when you need just the right amount of storage space, but you want files and apps available in a blink of an eye.
The Samsung SSD 950 Pro M.2 512GB MZ-V5P512BW is a professional solid state drive that relies on a PCI-Express 3.0 connection in order to work, unlike classic SSDs that work with SATA 2 or 3 connectors. This choice has been employed in order to bring to you better transfer rates. The PCI-E 3.0 interface works at up to 32Gb/s, much superior to what SATA is capable of. Performance is not all that matters, though. Such a SSD also needs failsafe elements that are guaranteed to keep your drive secure at all times.
The most important failsafe element introduced in the design of the Samsung SSD 950 Pro M.2 512GB MZ-V5P512BW is the V-NAND technology, which involves new materials that prolong the lifespan of the SSD. Even if your drive is under heavy loads most of the time, its performance won’t be affected. Another safety element of the drive is the DTT, or Dynamic Thermal Throttling technology. This has been added in order to actively monitor and control the temperature of the drive, especially when it’s put under heavy load. This way, you don’t have to worry about overheating issues.
The performance of solid state drives reaches new top levels when it comes to the Samsung SSD 950 Pro M.2 512GB MZ-V5P512BW drive. The sequential read speeds can reach up to 2,500 megabytes per second, while the sequential write speeds can reach up to 1,500 megabytes per second. Random reads go up to 300,000 IOPS when it comes to 4 KB, QD 32, Thread 4 settings. With such numbers in mind, you can be sure that your drive will provide lightspeed file transfers. Having such a drive installed in a high-end PC will allow you to boot the PC in just a matter of mere seconds. It might not seem as such a big difference, but once you see what an SSD can do, you’ll hardly want to go back to a classic HDD.
The reliability of the Samsung SSD 950 Pro M.2 512GB MZ-V5P512BW is above average, given the MTBF value stands at 1.5 million hours. The power consumption of this solid state drive is also extremely low, so it won’t make too much of a difference in a system when it comes to this aspect. All you need is a free PCI-E slot and proper airflow in order to keep things cool at all times.
