Upgrade to Impressive NVMe SpeedHarness your PC's potential with the 980. Whether you need a boost for gaming or a seamless workflow for heavy graphics, the 980 is a smart choice for outstanding SSD performance — and it's all backed by an NVMe* interface and PCIe 3.0 technology.
* The NVM Express® design mark is a registered trademark of NVM Express, Inc.
Packed with SpeedSatisfy your need for speed with PCIe 3.0, using HMB technology1 and NVMe interface for high efficiency. The 980 delivers value, without sacrificing sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,000 MB/s*, over 6.2x the speed of SATA SSDs**.
* Performance may vary depending on the SSD's firmware version, system and hardware configuration. Performance measurements are based on IOmeter 1.1.0. The write performances were measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology activated. The sequential write performances after Intelligent TurboWrite region are: up to 250 MB/s(250GB), 500 MB/s(500GB) and 900 MB/s(1TB). Test system configuration: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz,DDR4 2133MHz 8GBx2 OS-Windows 10 Pro 64bit Asrock Z-170 Extreme7+
** Results are based on a comparison with Samsung SATA SSDs.
1 HMB (Host Memory Buffer) technology enables the SSD to use DRAM of the host system for read/write caching and buffering.
