Samsung Reveals 980 Pro SSD

Today, Samsung introduced its first consumer PCIe 4.0 NVMe solid state drive (SSD) – the Samsung 980 PRODesigned for professionals and consumers who want cutting-edge performance in their high-end PCs, workstations and game consoles, the 980 PRO provides sequential read and write speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s and 5,000 MB/s respectively. That’s two times faster than PCIe 3.0 SSDs and up to 12.7 times faster than SATA SSDs.

Key components, including the custom Elpis controller, V-NAND and DRAM, are completely designed in-house to deliver the full potential of PCIe 4.0. In addition, for heavy workloads like 4K/8K content and graphics heavy games, the Samsung 980 PRO employs a nickel coating on the controller, a heat spreader label, and Samsung’s Dynamic Thermal Guard for maintaining optimal temperature levels.
