Samsung 990 PRO Series SSDs Available for Pre-Order on November 1st


  • Staff
Samsung Electronics America today announced that the Samsung 990 PRO PCIe 4.0 SSD Series will be available for pre-order on November 1, 2022. Featuring breakthrough innovations in proprietary NAND, controller, and software technology, the Samsung 990 PRO and 990 PRO with Heatsink are optimized for PC and console gamers, and creators seeking storage with outstanding performance, power efficiency, and thermal control.

The drives are well-suited for heavy gaming and productivity tasks like 3D rendering, 4K video editing, and data analysis. For a smooth and fast gaming experience, the 990 PRO Series delivers sequential read and write speeds of 7,450 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 6,900 MB/s respectively. The 990 PRO Series achieves random performance up to 1,550K IOPS, which reduces loading times dramatically. The 990 PRO Series is also optimized for Microsoft’s DirectStorage API software technology, which enables games to take advantage of fast NVMe SSDs.

Within the 990 PRO is the world’s first 8nm controller for consumer SSDs, which improves its power efficiency by up to 50% compared to the 980 PRO, increasing battery life on systems. Efficient thermal management provided by the nickel coating on the controller and a heat spreader label on the back side of the SSD means users needn’t worry about heat-related disconnections. Samsung’s Advanced Heat Dissipation Technology keeps the SSD at optimal temperature for hours of gameplay without performance degradation.

For an additional layer of thermal control, the Samsung 990 PRO with Heatsink meets the PCI-SIG D8 standards required for compatibility with desktops, gaming consoles, and laptops. Easily installed in minutes, console owners can more than triple their storage capacity for games and digital entertainment, eliminating frustrations from storage space limitations. The 990 PRO with Heatsink has a futuristic design and RGB lights to fit the style of any gaming setup, and Samsung Magician Software allows users to customize the RGB lighting color and effects. This software also allows users to view critical device health information.

Pre-orders for the 990 PRO 1TB ($169.99), 990 PRO 2TB ($289.99), 990 PRO with Heatsink 1TB ($189.99) or 990 PRO with Heatsink 2TB ($309.99) begin November 1, 2022 at Samsung.com.

The 990 PRO with Heatsink 1TB and 2TB are also available in a new character box – the contents of the box remain the same.

The 990 PRO Series comes with an industry-leading 5-year limited warranty[1] and will begin shipping in late November. A 4TB version of the 990 PRO Series will be available in 2023.

I trust Samsung knows what it's doing as PCI-E 5 isn't even fully implemented yet. Regardless, my system doesn't even support PCI-E 4 so... And by the time I build a new system sometime next year, perhaps they will have a PCI 5 variant. If not, still sticking with them.

Absolutely, Samsung drives are the best. I have a 980 Pro and would consider a 990 when I get my next-gen motherboard but now there's little point in getting one. A gen 5 model would've been on my list straight away.

I watched a drive comparison and the WD SN850 is not too far behind it in many areas and I already run both company's drives so I might consider getting the black for the price difference alone. I'm sure that with time and more competition the 990 pro price will moderate.
