Upgrade to breathtaking NVMe speed

It's time to maximize your PC's potential with our SSD 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 backed by an NVMe interface and PCIe 3.0 technology.

NVMe Speed

* The NVM Express® design mark is a registered trademark of NVM Express, Inc.

Packed with speed

Get right to it. The 980 harnesses nearly all the speed advantages of PCIe 3.0 through HMB* technology and NVMe efficiency. The DRAM-less design delivers exceptional value, achieving breakneck sequential read/write speeds up to 3,100/2,600 MB/s**, and over 6.2x*** the speed of SATA SSDs.

Speed

*HMB (Host Memory Buffer) technology enables the SSD to use the DRAM of the host system for reading/write caching and buffering.
**Performance may vary depending on the SSD’s firmware version, system, and hardware configuration. Performance measurements are based on IOmeter 1.1.0. The write performances were measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology activated. Intelligent TurboWrite operates only within a specific data transfer size. For detailed information, please contact your local service center. Test system configuration: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz,DDR4 2133MHz 8GBx2 OS-Windows 10 Pro 64bit Asrock Z-170 Extreme7+.
***Results are based on a comparison with Samsung SATA SSDs.

Keep moving with Full Power Mode

Keep your SSD running for consistently high performance with Full Power Mode. Switch on the Samsung Magician software to always keep your SSD in active mode and instantly jump between intensive work with huge files, graphics-heavy games, and normal PC usage.

Full Power Mode

Built for the long run

Keep your files safe with an SSD that's in it for the long haul. Rest assured with up to 300 TBW* and a 5-year limited warranty**. The 980's optimized endurance comes with reliability, thanks to Samsung's in-house solutions, from the state-of-the-art controller to V-NAND and the latest firmware.

Long Run

*TBW: Terabytes written
** Warrantied TBW for 980: 300 TBW for 500GB model.* 5 years or TBW, whichever comes first. For more information on the warranty, please find the enclosed warranty statement in the package.

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.

Thermal Control
Smart Thermal

Smart thermal solution

Embedded with Samsung's cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, the 980 manages heat on its own to deliver durable and reliable performance. Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard technology maintains the 980's temperature at optimal levels to minimize performance fluctuations in the long haul.

Samsung Magician software

Unlock the full power of the 980 with Samsung Magician's intuitive yet advanced 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.
