The 990 PRO and 990 PRO with Heatsink boast best-in-class random learn speeds of as much as 1600K IOPS

Samsung Electronics, a world chief in superior reminiscence know-how, in the present day introduced the discharge of a brand new 4-terabyte (TB) providing in its SSD 990 PRO sequence. The 990 PRO sequence is a lineup of high-performance PCIe1 4.0 SSDs powered by Samsung’s eighth-generation V-NAND (V8) know-how and enhanced proprietary controller.


Providing blazing-fast speeds and supreme energy effectivity, the 990 PRO sequence is optimized for large information volumes, corresponding to 3D/4K graphics work, information analytics and high-quality video games, making it the perfect SSD for in the present day’s PCs, laptops, sport consoles and computing programs. With improved whole bytes written (TBW) scores of as much as 2,400TB, the 990 PRO sequence ensures elevated SSD reliability and longevity, very best for these with extremely demanding workloads and huge storage capability wants.


“Right this moment’s avid gamers and artistic professionals require high-capacity, high-performance SSDs and Samsung’s new 4TB SSD 990 PRO is the proper storage answer to fulfill their wants,” stated Hangu Sohn, Company Vice President of the Reminiscence Model Product Biz Group at Samsung Electronics. “Because the demand for high-resolution content material and ultra-fast data-processing speeds continues to develop, high-performance NVMe2 storage has turn out to be a core requirement.”



Greatest-in-Class Efficiency and Capability

That includes Samsung’s V8 know-how and improved controller, the 4TB 990 PRO affords near-max efficiency in a PCIe 4.0 interface, with sequential learn speeds of as much as 7,450 megabytes-per-second (MB/s) and write speeds of as much as 6,900MB/s. The newly expanded capability of 4TB delivers boosted random learn and write speeds of as much as 1,600K and 1,550K IOPS3 respectively, making it the perfect answer for avid gamers, inventive professionals and tech fanatics looking for top-tier efficiency and space for storing.


With the quickest random learn efficiency amongst PCIe 4.0 interface shopper SSDs in the marketplace,4 the 4TB 990 PRO considerably reduces mid-game stalls and accelerates the loading of high-quality movies, growing avid gamers’ enjoyment and immersion. For top-end video games that assist the most recent in game-loading know-how, the 990 PRO sequence can assist cut back lag, permitting customers to get pleasure from real-time gameplay experiences with persistently excessive frames per second (FPS).



Enhanced Energy Effectivity and Dependable Thermal Management

The 990 PRO sequence achieves breakthrough energy effectivity, with an as much as 50% efficiency enchancment compared to the earlier 980 PRO sequence. It additionally incorporates a nickel coating on the controller and contains a warmth spreader label on the again facet of the SSD, making certain optimum temperature stage upkeep and minimal efficiency fluctuations over time. The 990 PRO with Heatsink is supplied with an efficient, slim heatsink, giving customers the complete expertise in sustained high-performance computing and gaming capabilities. Moreover, the drive is appropriate with the most recent sport consoles, so it may well velocity up sport set up and loading instances, whereas additionally stopping efficiency drops that may outcome from overheating.



Single-Sided 4TB SSD for Extremely-Slim Laptops

Due to Samsung’s V8 1Tb high-density NAND and the corporate’s reminiscence stacking know-how, the 4TB 990 PRO was designed with a single-sided M.2 type issue, which makes it slimmer than different double-sided M.2 SSDs. This frees customers from the considerations that double-sided M.2 SSDs could cause when put in into ultra-thin laptops, corresponding to an incapability to put in the SSD or the danger of damaging different elements. With a single-sided M.2 type issue, the streamlined design offers considerable storage capability and sustainable efficiency.



Samsung Magician Software program and Availability

The Samsung Magician software program ensures optimum efficiency in SSDs by maintaining firmware, drivers and different settings updated, whereas additionally providing the pliability to customise energy and efficiency optimization, in response to person preferences. Furthermore, the software program helps RGB performance for the 990 PRO with Heatsink, so avid gamers have the choice to customise coloration and LED results. Set to be launched in September 2023, the brand new model of Magician 8.0 will likely be an built-in software program answer for SSDs, moveable SSDs, reminiscence playing cards and USB flash drives.


The 4TB capability fashions of the 990 PRO and 990 PRO with Heatsink will likely be accessible in early October 2023. The 990 PRO sequence’ 1TB and 2TB fashions are at the moment accessible for buy. For extra info, together with guarantee particulars, please go to or
