The SSD which has been named at PM971‐NVMe is said to be a very tiny and is smaller than the U.S. Postage stamp. In this small package, all the SSD components would be available. This has been designed especially for the ultra slim notebooks and PCs of the next generation.

Samsung claims that around 3 seconds will be taken for a 5GB of equivalent full HD movie.
