SAMSUNG SSD 950 PRO
For the past two or so years, Samsung has done a stellar job in cementing its position as the world's foremost purveyor of SSDs. Thanks to its enviable position as one of the few truly integrated SSD manufacturers, Samsung has been able to provide innovative solutions and products like no other SSD manufacturer can.
So unsurprisingly, the SSD 950 Pro is a stellar drive and a worthy winner in this shootout. Though Intel's SSD 750 Series just about matches it for speed, the SSD 950 Pro is faster overall in our tests. Plus, it comes with other useful features such as the easy-to-use Samsung Magician utility and support for hardware encryption, which makes the 512GB SSD 950 Pro an easy drive to recommend to hardcore system builders who want to splurge on the best.
