SQLite performs abnormally slow with the Samsung 950 PRO 256GB, but it's not a fluke as even in the original Samsung 950 PRO tests it was very slow too. With these fresh tests from Linux 4.9 on Ubuntu 16.04, the Samsung 950 PRO SSD remained the slowest of all the drives tested, even the non-NVMe SSDs. At least with the Samsung 960 EVO, the performance is better than the 950 PRO, but still wasn't the fastest, which was the Intel NVMe SSD. Pretty surprising that the Samsung 950/960 series don't perform better with SQLite given this embedded database's popularity within web browsers and many other desktop applications, but this is the reproducible results we see today.

With random reads via FIO, the Samsung 960 EVO comes in just behind the 950 PRO at more than 700MB/s.

And the 960 EVO does really well with random writes.
