Samsung offers the fastest theoretical performance SSD, 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 interface, and 7,000MB / s speed. The drive will come in 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB capacities at launch. Which comes with a compatible motherboard, And if you don’t have a PCIe 4.0 motherboard, the new 980 Pro can deliver maximum read and write speeds of up to 3,500MB / s and 3,450MB / s.
SSDs have smaller write speeds in smaller capacity drives. While the 1TB version will run out of sequential write speeds up to 3,450MB / s via PCIe 3.0, the 500GB and 250GB models will be out at 3,400MB / s and 2,700MB / s, respectively. And How-To Geek suggests that SSDs may reduce write speeds due to fewer NAND channels. However, the PCIe 4.0 motherboard is not a common PC today. But it is good to see a future proof SSD. SSD will improve the normal speed on the PCIe 3.0 interface.
Talking about the price, the company will start retailing the three-capacity models 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB this month for the usual price of $ 90, $ 150, and $ 230. The price of the 2TB version has not been revealed but it will be available at the end of the year.
PCI Extended Information
The SSD 980 Pro is similar to the SSD 970 Pro introduced in 2018. The new drive is available in three capacities, 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB and 2TB versions will come at the end of the year. All these models are rather expensive, even for PCI Express drives. This drive ranges from game load to your PC. It also offers on-point rated reliability and a long five-year warranty, giving you confidence in it.
SSD selection determines the capabilities of your motherboard. Like most modern high-end SSDs, the SSD 980 Pro is a small rectangle that can be installed on your motherboard in an empty M.2 slot. Unlike other high-end SSDs, the SSD 980 Pro supports the PCI Express 4.0 standard. However, this drive is backward-compatible with PCI Express 3.0. The 980 Pro comes with 7,000MB / s speed. But the 3.0 motherboard will reduce the speed of SSD 980 Pro.
