M.2 SSD: Samsung 850 EVO vs Samsung 950 PRO

So I was looking at M.2 ssds and came across these two. Both are 500 gigabytes but the pro version costs twice as more. Why is that? I am only going to be using it for gaming. Is the 950 Pro worth its double the price?

    if you have a full 3.0 x 4 m.2 slot, the 950 is hugely faster




    850 evo:

  2. The 850 Evo SSD is an M.2 B+M which operates at 2x lanes of bandwidth. So is the upgrade still worth it?

    again, if you have a full 3.0 x 4 M.2 slot on your motherboard, the 950 is a LOT faster
