Samsung 970 EVO Plus - 1TB - M.2 NVMe - V-NAND SSD

Here is the newer NVMe x4 drive that I’ve ordered: On Amazon.

It is the Samsung (MZ-V7S1T0B/AM) 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology. This was a replacement for my Samsung 860 EVO. I still have both connected to my system so that I could dual boot if needed. I’ll still have access to my older files until I copy them over.

This works great with Linux ( and Windows ). I have installed Ubuntu 20.04 on it and it is terrific.

Samsung Ultra M.2 NVMe SSD for Linux and Windows

This is an NVMe M.2 drive so it uses PCIe instead of SATA. It uses 4 PCIe lanes for higher speeds. It could be reffered to as “Ultra M.2”. I’m using this with my ROG Strix Z390-E Gaming LGA 1151 ATX Intel Motherboard. The system board has two M.2 slots that should both work with this drive.
