The 960 Evo SSD is one of Samsung’s premier NVMe SSDs, along with their current flagship, the 960 Pro. The Evo variant is available in a variety of capacities including 250, 500 and 1000 GB, each with a commensurate price tag, whilst the 960 Pro is available in 512, 1024 and 2048 GB capacities. The 960 Evo has lower write endurance compared to the 960 Pro due to its TLC (3-bit) V-NAND flash memory (the 960 Pro consists of MLC (2-bit) V-NAND). As a result, Samsung only guarantee 200 terabytes written on the 512 GB 960 Evo, compared to double that on the 960 Pro, however, this volume of data is very unlikely to affect consumers. The 250 GB 960 Evo has a 13 GB SLC cache which boosts initial write speed to roughly match the 960 Pro but writes exceeding 13 GB drop in speed by over 50%. Overall, the 960 Pro offers more consistent write performance than the 960 Evo, however, this will only impact workloads that exceed the 13 GB. [Nov '17 SSDrivePro]

The 240GB Kingston HyperX Savage sports a Phison PS3110 controller. This marks a welcome departure from Kingston's use of Sandforce 2281 controllers and for the first time in years gives Kinston a shot at competing in the enthusiast/performance segment of the SSD market. Comparing the HyperX Savage and Fury shows that the new Phision controller has an effective speed that is around 40% faster than the Sandforce based Fury. But then comparing the similarly priced OCZ Vertex 460a and Savage shows that, although the overall effective speeds are similar, the Vertex has three times faster 4K Mixed IO speeds. The HyperX Savage is very good for typical consumer use but power users with more demanding I/O loads should probably look elsewhere. [Jun '15 SSDrivePro]
