"With the 970 PRO, Samsung has raised the bar yet again, delivering one of, if not the fastest, consumer SSDs on the market today. Designed for tech enthusiasts, hardcore gamers and professionals, this M.2 form factor SSD is powered by Samsung's new Phoenix controller and is available with up to 1TB of the company's latest 64-layer V-NAND flash. Combine this with a PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe 1.3 interface and you have an SSD capable of hitting some insanely fast speeds. The 970 PRO screamed through our sequential transfer rate tests, reading at speeds as high as 3,611 MB/s and writing at more than 2,300 MB/s. The drive also did very well in our random write tests, producing more than 232,000 IOPS at low queue depths.”
