Maximum speed

With Samsung’s in-house controller for PCIe® 4.0 SSD, the 980 PRO Series is optimized for speed. It delivers read speeds up to 7,000 MB/s, 2x faster than PCIe® 3.0 SSDs and 12.7x faster than SATA SSDs. The 980 PRO series achieves max speeds on PCIe® 4.0 and may vary in other settings.

* Sequential and random write performance was measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology being activated. Intelligent TurboWrite 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 9 3900X 12-Core Processor CPU@3.79GHz, DDR4 2666MHz 16GBx2, OS-Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Chipset-ASUS-X570-ROG CROSSHAIR VIII FORMULA

* Results are based on a comparison with Samsung PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSDs and SATA SSDs.

* To maximize the performance of the 980 PRO, please check whether your system supports PCIe 4.0 at the Intel or AMD website.

Smart Thermal Control

Samsung’s nickel-coated controller reliably manages NAND chip heat levels. The 980 PRO's heat spreader label allows thermal control access. The 980 PRO Heatsink uses proven data center SSD technology to dissipate heat, for continuous high-performance gaming on most consoles and PC systems.

This is an enlarged image showing the inside of the structure of the 980 PRO with heatsink product.

A winning combination

Gamers, techies, and designers benefit from thermal control, high-performance bandwidth, and sustained performance for heavy-duty applications. Games load fast for more play, less wait. Smart heat management reduces distracting noise and cooling fan work for uninterrupted, fully immersive gaming.
