As promised last month, Samsung has expanded its enterprise SSD range with industry’s first 2.5-inch NVMe (NVM Express) PCIe based SSD – XS1715. The drive has a storage space of up to 1.6TB and offers a sequential read speed of up to 3000MB/s, which Samsung says can process 500GB of data in under three minutes.

The NVMe SSD XS1715 will come in capacities of 400GB, 800GB and 1.6TB.
