    Reason for Samsung 950 Pro instead of 951 Samsung 950 Pro vs Samsung SM951 Thermal Comparison.
    Not only performance have matter
    The software doesn't work on the SM951 NVMe either, only the early AHCI version and only Samsung magician. The 951 in the video is the NVMe.
    Im getting benchmarks similar to the platforms where the Samsung drivers work. Any machine, regardless of manufacturer, is not shipping with Samsung drivers and Samsung Magician. Only OEM drivers, mostly windows and intel chipset drivers. The Samsung drivers and software is marketed for the consumer market.


    Windows NVMe and Intel Chipset drivers only (Not IRST)

    So Justin is this the 950 Pro or the 951?, I'm seeing on HDE they are offering both the 950 pro and 951. I remember in an earlier post someone benchmarked them both or maybe it was just the 951 his results were that the 951 reads fast but writes around only 500 mbs?

    This is the 950 Pro on stock drivers. My machine came with a 256gb SM951 NVMe version. No fresh install, no IRST drivers. Im not one to worry about the bloatware, CC cleaner uninstall does a nice job at removing what I don't want and its a lot easier than a fresh install and all drivers and updates. Also no Samsung drivers and no Samsung magician.

    Also keep in mind there are two versions of the SM951, AHCI and NVMe

    Yes I just goggled around a bit the 951 is older technology and OEM the only warranty is with the vendor. The 950 Pro is Retail and newer technology 5 year warranty. Also it appears that the 951 is rate at only 600 mbs read speed. Are you going to pull the 951 completely or use it for software?

    The 256GB SM951 is resting silently in its coffin. (the 950 pro packaging) and in the OEM box the laptop came in. When I buy a new machine I always take out the original drive after cloning and put it away for safe keeping. Last defense in recovery if needed and should an RMA need arise I can put that drive back in.

    The NVMe SM951 actually does quite well.

    Here is the bench of the OEM drive while I was waiting for the 950 Pro to show up

    Hey Brother, Which SM 951 and which protocol AHCI or NVMe? Looks about par for the 256GB ASUS stock model. Close to what I got anyhow.

    Hello,

    This is MZVPV256HDGL - NVM protocol.

    M2 in G752 works only with NVM from what asus support told me.

    While I haven't tried it personally the AHCI should work. From what I understand the limitation is you cant use the M2 SATA III protocol devices.
