Next-level SSD performance
Unleash the power of the Samsung 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD for next-level computing. 980 PRO delivers 2x the data transfer rate of PCIe 3.0, while maintaining compatibility with PCIe 3.0.
980 PRO is raising the bar for NVMe SSDs, delivering read speeds up to 6,900 MB/s. With a PCIe 4.0 interface, it is up to 2x faster than PCIe 3.0 SSDs and up to 12x faster than Samsung SATA SSDs. The powerful controller is designed to support larger input & output queues for PCIe 4.0, resulting in electric speeds.
A winning combination
Designed for hardcore gamers and tech-savvy users, the 980 PRO offers high-performance bandwidth and throughput for heavy-duty applications in gaming, graphics, data analytics, and more. It's fast at loading games, so you can play more and wait less.
Efficient M.2 SSD
The 980 PRO comes in a compact M.2 2280 form factor, which can be easily plugged into desktops and laptops. Due to its size and thus optimized power efficiency, it's ideal for building high-performance computing systems.
Reliable thermal control
High-performance SSDs usually require high-performance thermal control. To ensure stable performance, the 980 PRO uses nickel coating to help manage the controller's heat level and a heat spreader label to deliver effective thermal control of the NAND chip.
Smart thermal solution
Embedded with Samsung's cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, 980 PRO manages heat on its own to deliver durable and reliable performance, while minimizing performance fluctuations during extended usage.
