bitlocker with usb key CANNOT be bruteforced and pretty convenient (i'm not talking about the NSA here).

If I buy this drive that means I need to encrypt using bitlocker which means that I may lose most of the advantages of this SSD.
My other option is the buy a cheap SSD and don't use encryption at all.

The problem is the Warranty - If I but costly drive, I must use good encryption in case it goes bad, I work on pretty sensitive stuff and cannot risk hand the drive over for replacement.

I just build a system with a Samsung 950 Pro. Installed Win 10 Pro and ran CM.

This is with the latest Samsung driver. Looks a little low compared to some others, but not sure what else I can do.

And I would like to know that.
At the moment I wait to SM961 become available in Hungary or if 960 PRO show up earlier.
Support should be better for 960 PRO. I think speed will be similar, controller same probably only with new driver.

Hi Overclockers,

I just got a new Lenovo T460s and put a 512GB Samsung Pro 950 NVMe drive in the laptop. While I'm really impressed with performance, I couldn't help but notice a huge decrease when I "upgraded" to Samsung's NVMe controller instead of using default native in Win 10 Pro.

I'm wondering if I should remove Samsung's driver? Does anyone have any insight on this?

Thanks!

That's odd, I wonder if the big windows update messed with things? Samsung seems to have abandoned the 950 since we haven't seen a driver or firmware update since release... (I assume the promised OPAL and eDrive support was abandoned as well since the 960 Pro is probably releasing soon)

Or maybe they'll release the encryption fw when the 960 is released. They tend to like to release things together.

I think Samsung will not abandon 950 PRO like that. But now when I saw capability of SM961 I will definitely buy him or 960 PRO if show up soon.
It's bad because they didn't say nothing for 960 PRO except that soon will be launched in presentation of SM961 and PM961.
I would really like to see performance of SM961 with better support. But anyways SM961 work normal performance are OK.

The 950 Pro still has the initial release FW, there's been no updates yet.
