Samsung 990 Pro With Heatsink 1TB M.2 NVMe Internal SSD
The Ultimate SSD
Reach max performance of PCIe® 4.0. Experience longer-lasting, opponent-blasting speed. The in-house controller's smart heat control delivers supreme power efficiency while maintaining ferocious speed and performance, to always keep you at the top of your game.
PCIe 4.0's best theoretical sequential read is 8,000 MB/s - 990 PRO reaches 7,450 MB/s as of Q3, 2022.
PCIe 4.0 speed maximised
Huge speed boost. 40% and 55% faster random read/write speeds than 980 PRO - up to 1,400K/1,550K IOPS, while sequential read/write speeds up to 7,450/6,900 MB/s reach near max performance of PCIe® 4.0. Fly high in gaming, video and 3D editing, data analysis, and more.
Sequential and random write performance was measured with Intelligent Turbo Write technology being activated. Intelligent Turbo Write 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 centre. Test system configuration: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core Processor CPU@3.80GHz, DDR4 3600MHz 16GBx2 (PC4-25600 Overclock), OS - Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Chipset - ASRock-X570 Taichi To maximise the performance of the 990 PRO, please check whether your system supports PCIe 4.0 at the Intel or AMD website. 4TB to be released in 2023.
Breakthrough power efficiency
More power-efficient performance. Higher performance usually consumes more power. 990 PRO uses less power with up to 50% improved performance per Watt over 980 PRO. This low-power design makes max PCIe® 4.0 performance possible with optimal power efficiency.
980 PRO Sequential Read/Write - 1,129/877 MB/Watt, 990 PRO Sequential Read/Write - 1,380/1,319 MB/Watt based on internal test result of 1TB capacity model.
Smart thermal solution
Sink that heat. The slim heatsink dissipates heat to prevent performance drops from overheating. Get stable heat control, and minimal fan noise for heavy-graphic gaming. The thin body is compatible with PlayStation® 5, desktops, and laptops meeting the PCI-SIG® D8 standard.
PCI-SIG®D8 standard spec: 8.8mm
The champion maker
The best gameplay experience. A more than 55% improvement in random performance enables faster loads for ultimate gaming realism on PS5 and DirectStorage PC games. The heatsink's futuristic design adds style to heat control, now with RGB lights.
DirectStorage technology from Microsoft loads games faster than before by leveraging the multiple GB/sec speed of modern NVMe SSDs. Results are based on a comparison with Samsung 980 PRO
