Wow, read/write speeds are impressive and stay consistent across the different sizes. If the speeds are anywhere near advertised this has to be one of the fastest, if not the fastest, consumer data storage devices. Might have to pick one up for testing purposes!

According to the numbers, it beats the 960 EVO and matches the 960 Pro, being a little faster on writes and a little slower on reads compared to the 960 Pro. However, that is just by the numbers. We have yet to see a review on it, so we'll have to wait and see.

That is amazing, and it looks like it is actually available, and not that much expensive either, i hope to get one soon.

Excellent, some immediate competition for Samsung 960. At least NVMe will guarantee plenty competition.
Hopefully AMD can do the same thing with Intel and NVIDIA.

On the surface, this looks like it *could* be the replacement for owners of Samsung 256GB 950 PROs who are ready to upgrade, but disappointed that Samsung deleted that capacity from their new 960 Pro lineup (a big mistake).

But many a *promising* drive has not lived up to expectations under four corner benchmarking. We'll just have to wait and see.

Chris, any idea on the time-frame for a full review?

Also, when do you expect to have your review of the 500GB 960 EVO ready?

Depending on *which* 960 EVO you are comparing it to, the MP500 may be considerably better. It is likely far better than the 250GB 960 EVO, and we haven't seen a review on the 500GB 960 EVO.
