Samsung reveals its 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 SSD - [hardware]
10:28 AM EDT - Aug,31 2020 - post a comment

Samsung has officially revealed its 980 PRO series SSD, what is now the world's fastest consumer-grade PCIe 4.0 SSD. On its Singapore website, Samsung has listed 1TB, 500GB and 250GB models of its 980 PRO SSD, promising sequential read speeds of 7,000 MB/s, smashing the 5,000 MB/s speeds of today's other PCIe 4.0 offerings. With their 980 PRO SSDs, Samsung promises 7,000 GB/s sequential read speeds, 5,000 GB/s sequential write speeds, random read/write IOPS of up to 1,000K. Using the bandwidth offered by PCIe 4.0, Samsung has delivered a 2x performance improvement over the company's existing PCIe 3.0 offerings, providing a true generational leap in storage performance. Samsung claims that its PCIe Gen4 SSD can offer a 2x performance boosts over PCIe Gen3 SSDs and performance levels which are 12.7 times faster than SATA SSDs.

Samsung's 980 Pro SSD will utilize the company's Elpsis controller, use 1GB of low power DDR4 memory as a cache and utilize "Samsung V-NAND 3-bit MLC" memory. With the company's 970 EVP SSD, Samsung lists its TLC memory as 3-bit MLC memory, confirming that Samsung's 980 PRO SSD will utilize TLC memory, a first for the 9X0 PRO series (assuming that Samsung's 3-bit MLC listing isn't a typo). Note that Samsung's 980 PRO SSD will only reach its rated speeds when paired to PCIe 4.0 compliant systems, such as PCs powered by an AMD Ryzen 3000 series processor and a PCIe 4.0 compatible motherboard. At this time, Samsung has not revealed the pricing or release date of their 980 PRO SSD.
