* Performance may vary depending on the SSD’s firmware version and the system hardware & system configuration. Performance measurements are based on IOmeter 1.1.0. The write performances were measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology being activated. The sequential write performances after Intelligent TurboWrite region are: up to 500 MB/s(250GB), 1,000 MB/s(500GB) and 2,000 MB/s(1TB). * 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.
Thanks to its robust nickel coating, it helps manage the controller's heat level and includes a heat spreader label to deliver effective thermal control of the NAND chip.
Embedded with Samsung's cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, the 980 PRO manages heat on its own to deliver a reliable performance. To diminish performance fluctuations in the long haul, Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard technology maintains the 980 PRO's temperature at optimal levels.
OPTIMIZED POWER FOR HIGH-END SYSTEMSThe 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 is suitable for building high-performance computing systems due to its optimized power efficiency.
