Unleash the power fo the Samsung SSD 980 PRO, Samsung's first consumer PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD, for next-level computing experiences. Designed for graphics-intensive games and heavy-duty applications, the 980 PRO leverages Samsung's custom controller and PCIe 4.0 to deliver double the data transfer rate of PCIe 3.0, while backward compatibility and its compact M.2 form factor provide versatility and flexibility for diverse high-performance computing solutions.

Next-level NVMe SSD performance

Powered by Samsung's custom Elpis controller for PCIe 4.0 SSDs and the latest V-NAND and DRAM technology, all components and firmware of the 980 PRO are designed and manufacturer in-house by Samsung to maximise performance and speed. Together with the impressive power of PCIe 4.0, which offers a bandwidth of around 16GT/s per lane, the 980 PRO delivers sequential read and write speeds of up to 6,400MB/s and 2,700MB/s resepctively as well as random read speeds of up to 500K IOPS and write speeds of up to 600K IOPS. Compared to previous generation SSDs, the 980 PRO is about 2 times faster than PCIe 3.0 SSDs and 12.7 times faster than SATA SSDs.

A winning combination

Designed with hardcore gamers, creative professionals, and tech-savvy users in mind, the 980 PRO offers high-performance bandwidth and throughput for heavy-duty applications in gaming, data analytics, and more. It's fast at loading games for both PCs and consoles, allowing to play more and wait less, while its performance is also optimised to deliver seamless 4K and 8K content processing. The 980 PRO comes in a compact M.2 2280 form factor, which can be easily plugged in to desktops and laptops for maximum board design flexibility. The drive's optimised power efficiency makes it ideal for high-performance computing systems.

Smart, reliable thermal control

The 980 PRO's next-level performance is supported by exceptional thermal control. The SSD uses nickel coating instead of an external copper casing to help manage the controller's temperature and employs a heat spreader label to provide effective thermal control for the NAND chip. Embedded with Samsung's cutting-edge Dynamic Thermal Guard technology, the 980 PRO manages heat on its own automatically to ensure durable and reliable performance. To minimise performance fluctuations in the long haul, Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard technology monitors the 980 PRO's temperature continuosly and keeps it at the optimal level.

Fast delivery, fast product - when installed in a motherboard that supports PCIE 4.

I opted for the smaller 250 GB drive as it's only purpose is the OS and applications, with games and media on SATA SSDs and mechanical drives. Performance is very, very good. Just ensure your case is well ventilated to keep it cool for maximum performance. It does throttle, but only under synthetic tests. Being Samsung memory, I expect long durability. Recommended for sure.

fairly good value for the size and seems very fast.

Good boot drive, but make sure your motherboard is has an M.2 that is PCIE 4.0 compatible otherwise just go with the 970 PRO for half the price.

Great for a boot drive, do ensure your motherboard has an M.2 with PCIE 4.0 otherwise it's not worth it.
