Upgrade to breathtaking NVMe speed
It’s time to maximize your PC’s potential with the 980. Whether you need a boost for gaming or a seamless workflow for heavy graphics, the 980 is the smart choice for outstanding SSD performance, and it’s all backed by an NVMe1 interface and PCIe 3.0 technology.
Packed with Speed
The 980 solid state drive harnesses nearly all the speed advantages of PCIe 3.0 through HMB technology and dramatic NVMe efficiency. The DRAM-less design delivers exceptional value, achieving breakneck sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,000 MB/s²³, over 6.2x the speed of SATA SSDs⁴
Maximum Performance with full power mode
Keep your internal SSD running at peak level for nonstop, consistent high performance with Full Power Mode. Switch it on through Samsung Magician software to always keep your SSD in active mode. Instantly jump right back to intensive work with huge files, graphic-heavy games, or even normal PC usage
Smart thermal solution
Embedded with Samsung’s cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, the 980 SSD manages heat on its own to deliver durable and reliable performance. To minimise performance fluctuations in the long haul, Samsung’s Dynamic Thermal Guard technology maintains the 980’s temperature at optimal levels.
Reliable thermal control
High-performance SSDs usually require high-performance thermal control. To ensure stable performance, the 980 uses nickel coating to help manage the controller’s heat level and a heat spreader label to deliver effective thermal control of the NAND chip.
