    If you think laptops packing solid state drives (SSDs) are fast now, just wait until you see a notebook rocking Samsung's new SM951 MLC flash SSD introduced during CES. Samsung's latest SSD ditches SATA for the PCIe (M.2) interface, similar to other SSDs we saw hit store shelves in 2014.
    The advantage with PCIe (the same interface that graphics cards use) is it promises much faster read/write speeds. With the SM951, Samsung says sequential read/write speeds can hit 1,600MB/s and 1,350MB/s, respectively, over PCIe 2.0. Bump that up to a PCIe 3.0 interface, and you'll get jaw-dropping max read speeds of up to 2,150MB/s and write speeds around 1,550MB/s. READ MORE
