Samsung Electronics, one of the world’s largest makers of solid-state drives, has announced that it has developed the industry’s first 2.5” solid-state drive with NVM Express (NVMe) PCIe-based interface. The new drives offer exceptional performance, unprecedented reliability and can redefine the market of performance-optimized storage.

The newly developed high-speed Samsung XS1715 1.6TB NVMe SSD provides a sequential read speed at 3000MB/s, which allows it to process 500GB of data in less than 3 minutes. When compared to other products with similar specifications, this new SSD is 14 times faster than a high-end enterprise HDD for server use, and six times faster than Samsung’s former high-end enterprise SSD storage. The XS1715’s random read performance reaches up to 740 000 IOPS (input output operations per second), which is more than 10 times as fast as existing high-end SSD storage options.

The new NVMe SSD XS1715 comes in 400GB, 800GB and 1.6TB versions. It can also be found on the NVMe Integrators List (IL), which makes it an easy-to-manage and highly reliable solution for data center and server storage customers. System performance can be improved dramatically by upgrading to the NVMe SSD XS1715 from a 2.5” HDD or a 2.5” SATA SSD.

Over the next several years, Samsung expects to continue to develop a variety of NVMe SSD products with increasingly high performance levels.

By strengthening its eco-friendly cooperation with global enterprise customers through the production of low-power (green) NVMe SSDs, Samsung will endeavor to help its server and storage customers maximize the efficiency of their IT investments.

Can you explain please how do you connect this on your PC? Or you cannot. From the pic, you cannot see any type of connectors there...
