Unstoppable Speed

Unleash the power of the Samsung SSD 980 PRO, Samsung's first consumer PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD, for next-level computing experiences. Designed for graphics-intensive game 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 2280 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 SSD's and the latest V-NAND and DRAM technology, all components and firmware of the 980 PRO are designed and manufactured in-house by Samsung to maximize 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 7000 MB/s and 5,100 MB/s respectively as well as random read and write speeds of up to 1,000K IOPS. Compared to previous generations SSD's, the 980 PRO is about 2 times faster than PCIe 3.0 SSD's and 12.7 times faster than SATA SSD's.

A Winning Combination

Designed with hardcore gamers, creative professionals, and tech-savvy users in mind, the 980 PRO offers high-performance band-width and throughput for heavy-duty applications in gaming graphics, data analytics, and more. It's fast at loading games for both PC's and consoles, allowing you to play more and wait less, while its performance is also optimized 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 into desktops and laptops for maximum board design flexibility. The drive's optimized 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 wth Samsung's cutting-edge Dynamic Thermal Guard Technology, the 980 Pro manages heat on its own automatically to ensure durable and reliable performance. To minimize performance fluctuations in the long haul, Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard Technology monitors 980 PRO's temperature continuously and keeps it at the optimal level.

Samsung Magician Software

Unlock the full power of the 980 PRO with Samsung Magician's intuitive yet advanced optimization tools. Monitor drive health, optimize performance, protect valuable data, and receive important updates with Magician to ensure you're always getting the best performance out of your SSD.

World's No. 1 Flash Memory

Experience superior performance and reliability that you can only get from the world's number one brand for flash memory since 2003. All firmware and components, including Samsung's world-renowned DRAM and NAND, are produced in-house, allowing end-to-end integration for quality you can trust.
