Hey all, it looks like Samsung quietly updated their NVMe PCIe SSD Driver to version 2.1 back in December 2016. If you have a Samsung PCIe NVMe SSD (Samsung 950 PRO, Samsung 960 EVO, Samsung 960 PRO), it's a good idea to update it. Looks like it improves power consumption and fixes an unsafe shutdown bug in Windows 8.1 and 10.

Here's a link to download the new SSD driver.
