The new 980 Pro PCIe Gen4 SSD promises sequential data read speed of 6.5 GB/s and sequential write speed of 5 GB/s. Reaching the aforementioned speeds will require a PCIe 4.0 compatible system, which makes the 980 PRO’s performance available only on AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation systems at the moment.

To achieve these speeds, Samsung has developed a new SSD PCIe 4.0 compatible controller, updated 3D V-NAND to enable improved efficiency, better speeds and a V-NAND size up to 128 layers.
