According to Samsung, the SM951-SSD, which uses 10nm MLC NAND flash, both in a PCI-E-3.0 as a PCI-E 2.0 slot pricked. With the specified sequential read and write speeds of 1.6 and 1,35GB / s via the PCI-E 2.0 interface, the SSD is about 30 percent faster than its predecessor, the XP941-SSD. The number of IOPS amounts 4KB random read and write 130,000 and 85,000 respectively.

Besides high speed is the new design according to Samsung SSD considerably more economical. Thus, the SM951 consumes only 2mW in L1.2 low power mode, compared to the 50mW older L1 saving mode. Also, during read and write, the SSD up to 50 percent more fuel efficient than existing SSD designs.
