Samsung Electronics has launched its first consumer PCIe 4.0 NVMe solid state drive (SSD) called the Samsung SSD 980 Pro, it said on Wednesday.

The SSD is designed for cutting-edge performance for high-end PCs, workstations and game consoles, the South Korean tech giant said.

PCIe 4.0 NVMe protocol boasts up to 13 times faster speed compared to SATA.

980 Pro provides sequential read and write speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s and 5,000 MB/s respectively, as well as random read and write speeds of up to 1,000K IOPS.

The custom Elpis controller, V-NAND and DRAM, are completely designed in-house which allows this performance, Samsung said.

The SSD also comes with a thermal control solutions for improved reliability. Instead of relying on external copper heatsinks to diffuse heat, 980 Pro employs a nickel coating on the controller as well as a heat spreader label on the back side of the SSD for efficient thermal management.

The company’s Dynamic Thermal Guard technology further ensures that the drive’s temperature stays at the optimal level, minimizing performance fluctuations over the long haul, the South Korean tech giant said.

The SSD comes in 1TB, 500GB and 250GB models, and will be available worldwide starting this month.

The 2TB capacity model will be available by the end of this year. The 980 Pro’s manufacturer’s suggested retail prices start at US$89.99 for the 250GB model.

Samsung said the SSD will be perfect for 8K gaming and high-end gaming in the home.
