The below video is a complete beginning-to-end guide to installing the Samsung XP941 in your desktop PC, and installing Windows 8.1 from scratch.

(If you can't see the video below, click here).

"When comparing to any SATA 3 SSD, there really is no comparison for us to demonstrate just how much faster the Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSD is..."

"The XP941 is without a doubt the fastest consumer SSD in the market."

"Without question, the Samsung XP941 is the fastest consumer SSD in the world."

Now confirmed compatible in desktop machines including the 2006-2012 Model Mac Pro!

The latest news on the XP941 is that it is fully compatible and bootable in all new Intel X99-chipset motherboards, and with most previous generation Z97-chipset based motherboards, such as the ASRock Z97 Extreme6 (no adapter required).  To get the XP941 working in the ASUS Z97 Pro motherboard, see these excellent instructions. When combined with a M.2 to PCIe adapter, the Samsung XP941 provides class-leading storage performance in desktop machines and is also fully bootable in all cMP Mac Pro models (2006-2012, excluding the 'tube' model). See the table at the bottom of this page for approximate throughput figures.

See our blog post on How to install Windows 8.1 on the Samsung XP941 for the most up to date windows installation information.

****** WARNING *******

Do not run Parted Magic's secure erase on this drive. It will render it useless and void the warranty.

****** COMPATIBILITY NOTICE *******

If you intend to purchase this product as an upgrade for an existing smaller drive in a laptop, you should check if the existing drive is a Samsung XP941 or other M.2 PCIe SSD. If you intend to purchase this drive for installation in a desktop PC (with or without an M.2 socket), then please check the popular system chart below, review our M.2 SSD compatibility list blog post or feel free to contact us via chat, email or phone (see top of our website for details).

The new standard

The Samsung XP941 SSD in the new M.2 form factor is set to supercede the older mSATA format.  Weighing in at just 8g, it's 1/5th the weight of a standard 2.5-inch SSD and takes up just 1/7th of the space.

image of battery

Ultra green

Consuming just 80 mW of power when idle, and 5.8 W when fully active, the Samsung XP941 delivers longer battery life without sacrificing performance.


Life in the fast lane

The Samsung XP941 interfaces directly with your system via PCIe, eliminating the speed bottleneck associated with older SATA based technology. Using up to 4 PCIe 2.0 lanes, this allows the 512GB model to deliver sequential performance like you've never seen before - up to 1170MB/s read and 950MB/s write.

For desktops, laptops and 2006-2012 model Mac Pro

The new M.2 SSD format (previously known as NGFF - New Generation Form Factor) is compatible with the latest generation netbooks and notebooks containing a PCIe M.2 socket, such as the new Sony Vaio Pro.

To use this SSD in a desktop machine or cMP Mac Pro (all 2006-2012 models prior to the current cylindrical shaped one), you will need a free PCIe slot, and an M.2 to PCIe adapter. Booting is supported in the Mac Pro.

Note, system boot on Windows desktop PC's is only supported on certain Z97 and X99 chipset-based motherboards with built-in M.2 sockets. Booting with the XP941 is not currently supported in a Windows PC with the XP941 drive in conjunction with the adapter , but it works perfectly without drivers as a storage drive.

Review our M.2 SSD compatibility list blog post if you are not sure if this drive is compatible in your machine.

Rugged and reliable

With no moving parts, the Samsung XP941 provides extreme reliability and durability in adverse operating conditions, with a MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) of 1,500,000 hours, and an operating tolerance between 0C and 70C temperatures. Combined with an AFR (Annual Failure Ratio) of just 0.6%, these features make the Samsung XP941 a dependable and high performance storage solution for your system.

Latest technology

The XP941 M.2 format SSD represents the very latest in ultra high performance storage, from Samsung - the world leader in advanced memory technology. It doubles the performance available from current generation 7mm, 9.5mm and mSATA format solid state drives, and delivers this in a package that takes up as little as 1/7th of the space.

Designed and Built by Samsung

Samsung SSDs are designed completely in-house, allowing exceptional quality control and engineering capabilities. Samsung also builds all of the main SSD components itself. The result is products with outstanding performance and reliability, designed to enhance your computing experience.

Ideal for

  • Next-generation ultra-slim notebook PC's
  • PC Workstations
  • 2006-2012 Model cMP Mac Pro
  • High performance gaming rigs with Z97, X99 or later series motherboards

* To achieve maximum throughput in the 2008 Mac Pro, one or two of the PCIe 2.0 x16 slots must be used. These models have two x16 PCIe 2.0 slots and two x4 PCIe 1.0 slots. The latter PCIe 1.0 slots will only allow up to 585-753MB/s data transfer rates.

** From the review at barefeats.com: "Using the 'Expansion Slot Utility' in the System/Library/CoreServices folder, we reconfigured the PCIe slot speeds to various combinations of 4, 8, and 16 lane slots to benchmark the XP941. The transfer speeds above were achieved using the 4 lane slots. The 8 lane and 16 lane slots did not produce any faster transfer speeds. On other other hand, if you use a 1 lane slot, the transfer speeds drop to 200MB/s READ and 170MB/s WRITE. We tested with both OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard. OS X Tiger kernel panicked at startup. Though we didn't try it, it should also work with OS X Lion, the last Mac OS to be officially supported on the 2006 Mac Pro."

*** To achieve the listed throughput rates on a PC/Workstations/Server platform, a PCIe 2.0 x4 or higher slot is required (e.g. PCIe 2.0 x8 or PCIe 2.0 x16). PCIe 1.0 slots may provide lower performance, depending on the number of PCIe lanes allocated to the slot.

M.2 for OS

By: John Carnell on 28 May 2015
I have just assembled a NUC i7 and space is very limited, so I installed this Samsung XP941 as the OS drive which it runs beautifully, a full cold start up Windows 8.1 is 15 seconds, and computer is almost immediate in performing tasks. My first purchase from Ram City, and was very happy with the great service and keen pricing, so it won't be my last dealings with Ram City,

Superfast M2 SSD

By: John Mainas on 2 October 2014
Installed windows 8.1 in like 5 minutes from a usb, boots up windows 8.1 in like 2 seconds flat, i knew it would be fast but that's just nuts, worth every cent if you want speed, installed into a ASUS z97m--plus (x2 m.2 port), imagine if i had a x4 port but don't let that stop you this thing flys, i did not have to configure a thing i just gave my bios the latest bios update and it was good to go. really happy with the purchase. thanks :)

Fast as hell

By: Orrin Cummins on 11 September 2014
This works great with the ASRock Z97 Extreme6 motherboard. I had no problems creating a USB install disk for Windows 7 then installing it as UEFI. I kind of wish I had got bigger than 128 GB, but I just ended up ordering a separate SATA 256 GB SSD for my non-critical programs.

Review Samsung XP941 128GB M.2 NGFF PCIe SSD (2280

By: John Fry on 31 May 2014
I have been using this product in my computer for 2 weeks. It is my C (Windows) drive and has performed flawlessly, so far. My motherboard (Asrock Extreme6) has an Ultra M2X4 slot which connects directly with the CPU and therefore gives unhindered bandwidth albeit with downside for SLI graphics cards. This drive is one of the few, so far that are compatible with the M2x4 slot on the Asrock. Loading of my operating system was quick and trouble free, with Windows (8x64 bit) seeing the drive without problems. I have not benchmarked the drive so far, but extraordinary read and write speeds for this type of set-up have been reviewed elsewhere. RAM City were initially concerned that I had compatible hardware to run this drive, which was a real plus in my view. Their delivery service was exceptional.Overall, probably one of the best on-line transaction that I have made. Thanks RAM CITY John
