We’re in Seoul for Samsung’s SSD Global Summit 2016

Howdy, folks. After about 14 hours of flying yesterday, I'm in beautiful Seoul, South Korea this week to hear about what Samsung has in store for the next generation of high-performance SSDs.

Normally, we would be left guessing about what's going to be announced at an event like this, but the company's PR materials confirm we'll be hearing more about the Samsung 960 Pro and 960 Evo later today (or Wednesday, in local time). Stay tuned as we learn more, and watch for a post some time soon regarding the new drives.

    Nice I’m currently in Pyeongtaek for another month. I had no idea that was going on, but I work during the week anyway. Seoul is a great city. A lot to see. It’s odd but they have a great taco place Vatos Tacos!

    Have fun. Yes, make sure to set aside some time for fun.

    Anyway, what is the go-to language at the keynote? Do they have interpreters for the other language translations? Just wondering.

    Looking forward to everything that is new and cutting-edge that I hope to get my hands on in the next year or two.

      SSDs excel at random trips.

    Wait, RamCity has been selling SM961 m.2 drives for a couple of months. Tweaktown even reviewed them. Is this just the consumer release? or is there new firmware?

      The 960 Pro is a distinct product from the OEM SM961 drive, just like the 950 Pro and the SM951.
