Samsung Semiconductor 990 PRO PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 V-NAND SSD

* PCIe 4.0’s best theoretical sequential read is 8000 MB/s
- 990 PRO reaches 7,450 MB/s as of Q3, 2022.

PCIe 4.0 speed
maximized

Huge speed boost.
40% and 55% faster random read/write speeds than 980 PRO - up to 1400K/1650K IOPS,
while sequential read/write speeds up to 7450/6900 MB/s reach near max performance of PCIe® 4.0.
Fly high in gaming, video and 3D editing, data analysis, and more.

* Sequential and random write performance was measured with Intelligent Turbo Write technology being activated. Intelligent Turbo Write operates only within a specific data transfer size. Performance may vary
depending on SSD’s firmware, system hardware & configuration and other factors. For detailed information, please contact your local service center


* Test system configuration: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core Processor CPU@3.80GHz, DDR4 3600MHz 16GBx2 (PC4-25600 Overclock), OS - Windows 10 Pro
64bit, Chipset - ASRock-X570 Taichi


* To maximize the performance of the 990 PRO, please check whether your system supports PCIe®4.0 at the Intel or AMD website.
