Memory Size


Unleash the power of the Samsung SSD 980 Pro, Samsung's first PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD for home use - for next-level computing experiences. Designed for graphics-intensive games and high-performance applications, the 980 Pro uses Samsung's proprietary controller and PCIe 4.0 to double the data transfer rate of PCIe 3.0, while backward compatibility and a compact M.2 form factor provide versatility and flexibility in a variety of high-performance computing solutions.

Next-level NVMe SSD performance: Samsung's custom-built Elpis controller for PCIe 4.0 SSDs, advanced V-NAND and DRAM technologies, and all other components and firmware of the 980 Pro are designed and manufactured in-house by Samsung to maximise performance and speed. The 980 Pro is approximately twice as fast as previous generation PCIe 3.0 SSDs and 12.7 times faster than SATA SSDs.

A winning combination: Designed for hardcore gamers, creative professionals and tech-savvy users, the 980 Pro delivers high-performance bandwidth and throughput for performance-intensive applications in gaming, graphics, data analytics and more. It loads games quickly on both PCs and consoles, allowing you to play more and wait less. Its performance is also optimised for seamless processing of 4K and 8K content. Built in a compact M.2 2280 form factor, the 980 Pro easily plugs into desktop PCs and laptops for maximum PCB design flexibility. Optimised energy efficiency makes the drive ideal for high-performance computing systems.

Intelligent, reliable temperature control: The next level of performance of the 980 Pro is underpinned by exceptional temperature control. The SSD uses a nickel plating instead of an external copper enclosure to better control the temperature of the controller, as well as a heat spreader label that efficiently controls the temperature of the NAND controller. Embedded with state-of-the-art Dynamic Thermal Guard technology, the 980 Pro handles temperature management autonomously and automatically, ensuring reliable performance. To prevent long-term performance fluctuations, Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard technology constantly monitors the temperature of the 980 Pro and keeps it within the optimal range.
