Discover the powerful performance with PCIe 4.0 and experience blistering speeds to beat the competition. The thermal regulation of the Samsung controller offers high energy efficiency with consistently high speeds and performance.¹
Featuring 40% and 55% faster random read and write speeds compared to the 980 PRO, up to 1400K / 1550K IOPS and sequential read/write speeds up to 7450 / 6900MB/s.² ³ ⁴
Higher performance often consumes more power. Not with the 990 PRO. Experience low power consumption with over 50% improved performance per watt over the previous model.⁵
Because a performance improvement of more than 55% over the previous model, this enables faster loading processes for a more authentic gaming experience for the PlayStation 5 and PC games with Direct Storage function.⁶ ⁷
The nickel-plated controller and state-of-the-art thermal control algorithm regulate heat and allowing for unrestricted performance. The heat-spreader label controls the heat of the NAND chip, while the Dynamic Thermal Guard technology regulates temperatures.
The user-friendly software solution helps you to always keep an eye on your SSD. With it, you can keep your drive up-to-date with updates, monitor status parameters and speed, and even optimise performance.
¹ The theoretical best possible sequential read speed of PCIe 4.0 is 8,000 MB/s - the 990 PRO achieves 7,450 MB/s.
² Sequential and random write performance measured with TurboWrite intelligent technology enabled. Intelligent TurboWrite only works within a certain data transfer size. Performance may vary based on SSD firmware, system hardware and configuration, and other factors. For detailed information, please contact your local service center.
