Samsung has announced their 960 Pro and 960 Evo NVMe M.2 SSDs at the global SSD summit, with the 960 Pro containing up to 2TB of storage and the 960 Evo containing up to 1TB of storage. 

The 960 Pro will come in capacities of 512GB, 1TB and 2TB, with the 960 Evo coming in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB, with the Pro offering sequential read and write speeds of 3.5GB/s and 2.1GB/s and the Evo offering read and write speeds of 3.2GB/s and 1.9GB/s

In the past, Samsung has already released consumer oriented of their enterprise/OEM SSDs with their 950 Pro, which was a consumer grade version of their highly successful SP951 SSD. As such this 960 Evo is expected to deliver performance that is similar to Samsung's existing PM961, which uses the same TLC V-NAND and Polaris memory controller.   

Below is an image detailing the pricing of these new M.2 SSDs.
