Benchmarks: File Copy Test

For large file transfers the new Samsung 960 SSDs lead the way. Although the 960 Pro was 30% faster than the cheaper Evo series, the 960 Evo 500GB drive was anything but slow, besting the rest here.

The 960 Evo closely followed the 960 Pro in our program copy test, delivering an impressive throughput of 512MB/s.

Again the 960 Pro series was almost 30% faster than the 960 Evo, this time for the game copy test, though the 960 Evo was still able to beat everything else with an impressive throughput of 856MB/s.
