Samsung Launches New 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD

After accidentally leaking the product page, Samsung finally releases its latest high-end 980 PRO NVMe SSD, which is also its first PCIe 4.0 drive for consumers.

The 980 PRO is fitted with a custom Elpis memory controller and 3-bit MLC (TLC) V-NAND (up to 136-layer), which are both developed in-house by Samsung. Along with the PCIe 4.0×4 interface and NVMe 1.3c protocol, the SSD can achieve maximum sequential read/write speeds of 7000 MB/s and 5000 MB/s. It can reach up to 1,000,000 IOPS in random operations (QD 32, THRD 16).

There are four capacities for the 980 PRO, from 250 GB to 2 TB. They have a MTBF of 1.5 million hours and rated endurance from 150 TBW to 1200 TBW. All models come with a 5-year warranty. The SSD will begin shipping this September, starting with a price of $89.99 USD (MSRP) (250 GB). However, the 2 TB model will be available before the end of 2020.
