Samsung NVME SSD 980 - The Smart Choice for NVMe Performance

Samsung is pleased to introduce to you, the newest Samsung V-NAND SSD for client PCs, the Samsung SSD 980 with Samsung's latest 3-bit MLC V-NAND and in-house controller.

Solid NVMe Performance

Samsung NVMe SSD 980 delivers up to 3,500 MB/s and 3,000 MB/s for sequential read and write respectively.1) The performance of 980 is remarkable since this provides outstanding NVMe performance of PCIe 3.0 with DRAMless architecture. Thanks to the Host Memory Buffer (HMB) feature, and upgraded Intelligent TurboWrite 2.0, users can experience the supreme performance for even longer time than the predecessor 970 EVO.

1) Performance may vary depending on SSD's firmware, system hardware & configuration and other factors.

Proven Reliability

The 980 boasts proven endurance with up to 600 terabytes1) 2) written. Advanced thermal control solutions enhance performance with reduced heat risk. Dynamic Thermal Guard (DTG) technology proactively minimizes overheating, and a heat spreader with an integrated thin copper film dissipates heat more efficiently. A nickel coating on the controller also helps to dissipate heat faster during heavy workload use in order to ensure the high levels of quality and reliability for which Samsung is known.

1) All documented endurance test results are obtained in compliance with JESD218 standards. Please visit www.jedec.org for detailed information.
2) TBW is based on the 1TB capacity.

Optimized Efficiency with whole renovation

Samsung has re-designed every corner of the product from the circuit architecture to passive/active elements. As the result of this optimization, 980 shows an outstanding power efficiency, which means that it shows solid performance even with a low power consumption. 980 provides 54% better power efficiency (Performance/Watt), compared to that of 970 EVO.

Enhanced Software with Full Power Mode support

With the update of Magician 6.3 in March, 980 will support the new feature called Full Power Mode. With this new feature, 980 runs at the peak level for nonstop, consistent high performance. Additionally, 980 features Samsung Data Migration Software, which helps users to move their data easily.

1) 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes by IDEMA. A certain portion of capacity may be used for system file and maintenance use, thus the actual available capacity may differ from the labeled capacity.
2) Sequential and random performance measurements are based on IOmeter1.1.0. Performance may vary based on SSD's firmware version, system hardware & configuration. Test System: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz, DDR4 2133MHz 8GBx2 OS-Windows 10 Pro 64bit Asrock Z-170 Extreme7+
3) Sequential and random write performance was measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology being activated. Intelligent TurboWrite operates only within a specific data transfer size. Performance may vary depending on SSD's firmware, system hardware & configuration and other factors.
4) Power consumption is measured with IOmeter1.1.0 version with AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8 Core @3.6GHz, DDR4 8GBx2, OS-Windows 10 Pro 64bit, Chipset-GIGABYTE-X570-AORUS MASTER

Synology NAS read cache

I bought this for a read cache for my Synology NAS. Easy to install and it does seem to speed up quick scrolling through my photos by quite a bit, although it still lags on an initial load of new photos and when the cache is refreshed, but that is to be expected.

Amazing product

I recently upgraded from a HDD to this M.2 and the difference is absolutely incredible. This SSD allows for extremely quick download and load times. I used to turn my PC on, and sit on my phone for about a minute whilst waiting for it to boot, now by the time I pull out my phone and turn it on my PC's already booted.

The only con about this may be the price, but buying this product during a sale is an absolute steal. But I would still recommend this SSD without a sale if you got the budget.

End of 2 years slow PC trouble.

I have a dell Inspiron 3584 with 1TB HDD and i3 processor of 7th gen. It used take me atleast 10minutes just to unlock the PC and then more than 1.5 hours to open the word and let it load the add-ins and then create a doc file for my assignments should, my system allow me to.
After installing this affordable SDD all I want to say is, ITS WORTH IT.
It now takes me less than 0.5minutes to sign in and I have removed my HDD as 500gb SDD itself is more than enough for me.
Highly recommended.

Great product and price

WOW these things are fast even though it is not the PCIe 4.0 version. Had an older crucial SSD which this one just blows away based on Read/Write performance. Great value and advice again from the PB Tech team

Great value for the [sale] price

Purchased this to match another Samsung 980 500GB SSD which I have as cache in an unraid server. This particular SSD is now being used in conjunction (RAID1) with the other SSD. It got quite hot during initialisation but cooling (case off, direct fan) kept this under control. Running perfectly well now under normal operating conditions and remains at a good temperature without any extra cooling required.
