1. Samsung 980 Pro

Unleash the power of the Samsung SSD 980 Pro, Samsung's first PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD for home use - for taking computing to the next level. 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.

Taking NVMe SSD performance to the next level: Samsung's custom 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 maximize 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 analysis and more. It loads games quickly on both PCs and consoles, so you play more and wait less. Its performance is also optimized for seamless processing of 4K and 8K content. The 980 Pro is built in the compact M.2 2280 form factor and easily plugs into desktop PCs and laptops for maximum board design flexibility. The drive's optimized power efficiency makes it ideal for high-performance computing systems.

Intelligent, reliable temperature control: The next level of performance of the 980 Pro is backed by exceptional temperature control. The SSD uses nickel plating instead of an external copper case to better control the temperature of the controller, and a heat spreader label that efficiently controls the temperature of the NAND controller. The 980 Pro, embedded in the state-of-the-art Dynamic Thermal Guard technology, manages temperature autonomously and automatically to ensure reliable performance. To prevent long-term power fluctuations, Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard technology constantly monitors the temperature of the 980 Pro and keeps it within the optimal range.

4. Samsung 970 EVO Plus

Equipped with the latest V-NAND technology, the 970 EVO Plus is even faster than the 970 EVO and also features firmware optimisation. Thanks to NVMe, even greater bandwidth is made possible for even faster access times. It is specifically designed for tech professionals, gamers, and professionals who frequently work on creating and editing videos or simulations. With 3bit MLC V-NAND technology and the proven Phoenix controller, the 970 EVO Plus offers unsurpassed performance and exceptional reliability in a small M.2 2280 form factor. Combined with Samsung V-NAND technology, the powerful Phoenix controller and improved Intelligent TurboWrite technology, the 970 EVO Plus delivers impressive sequential read/write performance. Intelligent TurboWrite technology uses a large buffer size to enable faster write speeds, improving ease of use especially when transferring large files or heavy workloads. The Samsung controller on the 970 EVO Plus is nickel-plated and the SSD's drive module has a heat spreader to effectively dissipate waste heat from operation. In addition, the Dynamic Thermal Guard function constantly monitors the drive so that optimum operating temperatures are maintained and performance can be kept constant. The Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology of the 970 EVO Plus helps keep your data secure at all times. In addition, there is an AES 256-bit encryption engine to ensure the security of your personal files. Hardware-based encryption secures your data without the performance degradation that can occur with software-based encryption. The 970 EVO Plus is also compatible with various advanced security management solutions (TCG Opal and Encrypted Drive-IEEE1667). The 970 EVO comes with Samsung Data Migration and Magician software that are easy to install and simplify the management of your SSD. Samsung Data Migration offers you a very powerful custom cloning feature that makes migration effortless, even if the amount of source data is greater than the capacity of the SSD. Magician provides personalized firmware checks and features tailored to each user's drives. The software even automatically updates the firmware to ensure that the drive's performance remains up to date. With this SSD, data is transferred using PCI-Express, leaving conventional SATA SSDs far behind in terms of transfer rate. M.2 SSDs are installed on the motherboard via the M.2 socket. Due to their compact dimensions, they are particularly suitable for use in Ultrabooks and Mini-PCs, but can also be used in normal computers. In systems with NVMe-support this SSD shines especially. You benefit from high throughput, high IOPS and low latency. Unlike the older AHCI protocol designed for traditional spinning drives, NVMe prevents performance degradation, provides faster transmission of large amounts of data, increased boot speeds, and improved system response time.
