Samsung Electronics has introduced high-performance solid-state (SSD) drives series 970 PRO and 970 EVO, designed for the consumer market.
Products are made in the format M.2 2280: their dimensions are 22 × 80 mm. The drives belong to NVMe 1.3 devices. Recall that the specification NVM Express (NVMe) describes access to the SSD using a PCI Express bus – in this case PCIe 3.0 x4. This provides higher read and write speeds, and also reduces latency.
