M.2 (2280) Form Factor
PCIe 4.0 Interface
6,900MB/s Seq. reads
5,000MB/s Seq. writes
Get read speeds up to 7,000 MB/s¹ with 980 PRO and push the limits of what SSDs can do. Powered by a new in-house controller designed to harmonize the flash memory components and the interface for superior speed – with a PCIe 4.0² interface that’s 2x faster than PCIe 3.0 SSDs³ and 12x faster than Samsung SATA SSDs4 – every component of this NVMe SSD is manufactured by Samsung for performance that lasts.
A winning combination
Designed for hardcore gamers and tech-savvy users, the 980 PRO offers high-performance bandwidth and throughput for heavy-duty applications in gaming, graphics, data analytics, and more. It's fast at loading games, so you can play more and wait less.
Efficient M.2 SSD
The 980 PRO comes in a compact M.2 2280 form factor, which can be easily plugged into desktops and laptops. Due to its size and thus optimized power efficiency, it’s ideal for building high-performance computing systems.
Reliable thermal control
High-performance SSDs usually require high-performance thermal control. To ensure stable performance, the 980 PRO uses nickel coating to help manage the controller's heat level and a heat spreader label to deliver effective thermal control of the NAND chip.
Smart thermal solution
Embedded with Samsung's cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, 980 PRO manages heat on its own to deliver durable and reliable performance, while minimizing performance fluctuations during extended usage.
Samsung Magician software
