Some motherboard manufacturers have gone through the extra steps to update their BIOSes with NVMe support, but I haven't been able to get a detailed answer of what exactly needs to be changed to enable NVMe on current chipsets. Anyway, the SM951 is not NVMe enabled and will not gain NVMe support later either, so for now there isn't a single client-oriented NVMe SSD. Samsung has, however, stated that the company is working on a client NVMe SSDs, which means we may seen one soon after all.

That is correct, but you are reading it wrong. A current SM951AHCI will never gain NVMe support. That is correct.
But there is a new SM951 model with NMVe support comming soon. Hence, the new part number.

A NVMe version of the SM951 is such a pleasant surprise to hear. I'd love to read some more details on it.

"It turns out that the SM951 is overall faster than the SSD 750 in our heavy trace as it beats the SSD 750 in both data rate and average latency. I was expecting the SSD 750 to do better due to NVMe, but it looks like the SM951 is a very capable drive despite lacking NVMe (although there appears to be an NVMe version too after all)."

we can qoute many people- they are wrong many times and change their words

Anyone should take any reviews "with grain of salt" -they all happy getting product sooner and many times they favor being better paid (YT and written )
Best to look for nonsporsored videos or forum like here and compare results, they all survive from each other

there is no problem installing windows 8.1 + on the asus x99 deluxe
and booting from that ssd ?? (sm951)

also, will there be support by this m/b for installing as nvme for the new sm951 nvme??

Does the SM951 light up the hard drive activity light on your motherboards? Especially Asus motherboards?

The following is just speculation...

Samsung know about the SM951 heat issues and are therefore leaving - as of now - the SM951 as an "OEM" drive only. Most OEM PCs won't be running in very hot environments (low to mid-end GPUs, not much overclocking, etc.), let alone 2, 3, or 4 GPU environments in which case - I'm guessing - the SM951 will be extremely susceptible to it's heat issues. Then, once Samsung get on top of these issues, they'll market the new/improved drive as a true enthusiast/"mainstream" drive like they do with their XP941 and 850/840/830 SSDs, along with NVMe support, and maybe a different model name/number.

Just guessing as I find it really odd how this drive is so "underground" compared to the XP841 and the 850/840/830 SSDs.

Oh you're saying you stuck the SSD into one of these?



What about the P3700? Did that make your hard drive indicator light on the motherboard or case light up? Or was it just the led on the P3700 that lit up?
