Part of the SATA 3.2 standard, SATA Express taps into the high bandwidth available from PCIe yet joins multiple SATA connectors together in a way that remains backwards compatible with existing drives. While many new motherboards include SATAe, we don't...

The Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe solid state drive is a phenomenal drive that flaunts its 1GB/s performance and is worth every dollar for your next upgrade, that is if you can find...

There's been a lot of recent talk about the Samsung SM951 M.2 PCIe SSD. It was supposed to launch as an NVMe product, but ended up coming out in AHCI form . We can only assume that Samsung chose to hold back on their NVMe-capable iteration because many...

There are many choices when buying flash to accelerate intensive desktop-oriented workloads like those for media and entertainment (M&E), oil and gas research, CAD and more. It's not always obvious though where to justify the expense when it comes to...

The good news is that RamCity has lowered its pricing since May. The XP941 still carries a premium over SATA SSDs, but it is now more competitive in price at less than a dollar per gigabyte. For US-based customers, finding the XP941 in stock can be a bit...

If you're into storage like I'm into storage, ASRock's Z97 Extreme6 is something special. On one board, it exposes SATA, two-lane M.2 attached to the platform controller hub (at second-gen signaling rates), SATA Express, and four-lane M.2 wired straight...

After reading about and trying out the Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSD we can confirm that the these drives are hyped up for good reason. The Samsung XP941 is the fastest SSD available on the market and we were impressed by the real world performance numbers...

The only major problem in the XP941 is that it doesn't support booting in most Windows systems. If you are a Mac Pro owner, this issue doesn't concern you but for everyone else it's definitely a major drawback. Using an SSD as a secondary drive can make...

I'm guessing that we'll probably see something from Samsung at this year's Global SSD Summit, or at least I deeply hope so. We'd also like to see more competition from other SSD manufacturers, but until SandForce's SF3700 is ready to hit the market in the second half of 2014, there isn't a drive that can challenge the XP941.

The Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSD is an amazing representation of where we are going in ultrabook storage performance and will be seen in countless portables soon enough.  The XP941 is fast becoming the ‘new standard' and Samsung's inability to provide...

Allerede da min Mac Pro var på vej fra USA, købte jeg en OWC Mercury Electra 6G SSD og et par SSD-skuffer til maskinen. Desværre kom pakken først efter jeg havde modtaget maskinen, så jeg måtte leve med en 1TB WD Black mekanisk HD i en lille uge. Helt som ventet kunne jeg konstatere, at livet er for kort til mekaniske diske - ihf. som...

Med introduktionen af M.2 soklen er der nu mulighed for at få ekstra fart på SSD teknologien. Den giver nemlig adgang til at producenterne kan koble din lagerenhed direkte på PCI ekspress bussen, og derved få en hidtil uhørt båndbredde til rådighed....

Iets later dan verwacht is de eerste generatie native PCI-Express SSD's het afgelopen jaar in de markt gearriveerd. In elk geval een aantal hiervan lost alle beloftes van de snellere interface in. Wij testten de modellen van Plextor, Kingston, Samsung...

Что ж, Samsung 850 EVO преподнес сюрприз. Ну… бывает, и тут ничего не поделаешь, всегда есть место казусам. Но, с другой стороны, оставшиеся в живых накопители Intel избежали весьма серьезного конкурента. Компания обновила свою линейку, внедрив новую...

Op de nieuwste generatie moederborden zijn SATA Express en M.2 aansluitingen geen uitzondering meer. De PC is dus klaar voor de PCI-Express SSD-revolutie. Volgend jaar moet die echt gaan plaatsvinden. Wie online de SSD-reviews van Hardware.Info volgt...

新しめのSATA3接続SSDからですと、乗り換えても微妙な感じに終わるかと思います、Windows 7環境の場合。HDDにOSを入れていた方は、選択肢としてありかもしれません。ただ、SATA3のSSDに比べてコスパは悪いです。M.2の良い所は、SATAポートを使わない、ケーブルが必要ないといった所でしょうか。ただし、M.2スロットの配置によっては、ビデオカードの排熱を直に受けることになります。M.2...

Die Samsung XP941 512GB ist die erste M.2 SSD auf dem Markt, welche auf einen Controller setzt, der mit vier PCI-Express-Lanes des PCI-Express-2.0-Standards umgehen kann und damit erstmals die theoretischen Möglichkeiten des neuen M.2-Slots besser...
