According to Jeeho Baek, the Senior Vice President of Memory Marketing at Samsung: "Our new NVMe SSD will allow for faster, ultra-slim notebook PCs with extended battery use, while accelerating the adoption of NVMe SSDs within the consumer marketplace. Samsung will continue to stay a critical step ahead of others in the industry in introducing a diversity of next-generation SSDs, that contribute to an enhanced user experience through rapid popularization of ultra-fast, highly energy-efficient, compact SSDs".

The new SSD will be capable of 2.2GB/sec and 1.6GB/sec sequential read/writes, respectively. It will arrive with 300,000 IOPS and a form factory of no thicker than 3.73mm, which is as thick as "two stacked nickels" reports WCCFTech. It will only weigh 7g, and use 2mV which is a big drop in power from normal storage products that use up to 50mV.
