The secret is lifted, the new SSD-Series from Samsung are here and there looking not bad! Samsung announced the SSD’s yesterday, some reseller already listening their own model numbers e.g. MZ-76P4T0E which means we might see the SSD’s very soon on the market.

I expect that the Pro series get MLC-3D-NAND but it’s not mentioned, while the Evo typically gets TLC-3D-NAND.
At this point it’s unclear when Samsung release it into the market, I got no information on this (yet).
Just give me the 860 Pro 1 TB for 250€ and I would replace my current Samsung, however I’m not impressed by the current data because a Crucial MX500 would be a cheaper alternative which is still fast enough. 😄
Samsung M.2 860 Evo was for a short amount of time visible on the official Samsung page but got removed for no reasons.
