Samsung Unlocks Ultra-Fast PCIe 4.0 Speeds with 980 Pro SSDs

Faster storage can help with more than just the basics of storing and moving files. It can improve performance of your computer and operating system, as well as give a boost to gaming and make your creative editing programs run smoother. Now for the latest and greatest tech to hit consumer storage: PCIe 4.0.NVME M.2 SSDs. Samsung has come through for us all with the 980 PRO series.

Building on its hugely popular and impressive 970 PRO drives, the Samsung 980 PRO offers compatibility for PCIe 4.0 interfaces, which will unlock read speeds of up to an incredible 7000 MB/s. Write is no slouch either, since that can top out at 5000 MB/s. If you haven’t moved on from conventional SATA-based SSDs yet, this means you can see an improvement of 12.7x and, even with the current-gen PCIe 3.0 M.2 drives, you’ll see up to twice the speed.
