Samsung 980 Pro is the next generation ultra-fast SSD TechRechard

The Samsung 980 Pro solid state drive was shown to us at the beginning of the year, but the company presented it only now. This is an M.2 SSD, which primarily impresses with its speed characteristics.

The Samsung 980 Pro is available in three versions: 250GB, 500GB and 1TB. There are no prices yet, but these drives will obviously not be cheap. As for the parameters, here they are.

As always, the largest SSD is the fastest. But even for the younger model, the figures are very impressive. The secret is simple: PCIe 4.0 interface, new Samsung Elpis Controller and V-NAND MLC memory. Actually, all SSDs with PCIe 4.0 on the market are probably very fast, but 7000 MB / s is, if I’m not mistaken, a record for this segment. Moreover, such speeds will obviously impress for a long time, so buying now Samsung 980 Pro, you can not worry about obsolescence. Well, the MLC memory in theory guarantees sufficient reliability.
