Upgrade to impressive NVMe speed
Harness your PC’s potential with the 980. Whether you need a boost for gaming or a seamless workflow for heavy graphics, the 980 is a smart choice for outstanding SSD performance – and it’s all backed by an NVMe interface and PCIe 3.0 technology.
Packed with speed
Satisfy your need for speed with PCIe 3.0, using HMB technology and NVMe interface for high efficiency. The 980 delivers value, without sacrificing sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,000 MB/s, over 6.2x the speed of SATA SSDs.
Keep moving with Full Power Mode
Keep your SSD running at its peak with Full Power Mode, which drives continuous and consistent high performance. Enable through Samsung Magician software to keep your SSD in active mode with no latency, so you can instantly jump back into large intensive work files or graphics-heavy games.
Built for the long run
Keep your files safe with an SSD that’s in it for the long haul. With up to 600 TBW and a 5-year limited warranty, the 980’s optimized endurance comes with trusted reliability thanks to Samsung’s in-house solutions, from the advanced controller to V-NAND and the latest firmware.
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.
Smart thermal solution
Embedded with Samsung’s cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, 980 manages heat on its own to deliver durable and reliable performance, while minimizing performance fluctuations during extended usage.
Samsung Magician software
Unlock the full potential of 980 with Samsung Magician’s advanced, yet intuitive optimization tools. Monitor drive health, optimize performance, protect valuable data, and receive important updates with Magician to ensure you’re always getting the best performance out of your SSD.
