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.
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

All warranties are return to base unless otherwise specified.
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
Solid for the price
Got it during a sale, it's a noticeable improvement over my normal SATA III SSD. Windows loads lighting fast on it, and games load extremely quick! Would be happy with the product, even at full price.
Excellent product & price
Samsung brand had many good reviews when fitted to my laptop.
I found it to be easy to install, format and setup my OS.
Seems to run cool.
Very glad I chose this product.
Pretty good speed for the money. Highly recommend
Buy it, I still don't really know what it does but my PC hasn't fallen apart or been struggling with anything thus far! Thanks PBtech
A Great purchase for the Price
Absolutely worth every penny. My 4 years laptop has got new lease of life and it faster than some of the new ones. Lightning fast boot no more lags. Highly recommended.
