If you want optimal performance when gaming, you’ll require a solid state drive (SSD). They let your operating system run faster and smoother, preventing lags and hesitation. And they’re lightning fast, too, as they skip the mechanism spin that a traditional hard drive (HDDs) needs. This results in speeds up to 100 times faster than HDDs. But SSDs aren’t just for gamers, they increase your PC or Mac’s speed, transfer files faster, boot quicker, and runs apps faster.

Samsung recently announced that they’ll be released their latest SSD—the 870 Evo. Let’s take a look at some of its specifications and what they mean.
