Reach max performance of PCIe® 4.0. Experience longer-lasting, opponent-blasting speed. The in-house controller's smart heat control delivers supreme power efficiency while maintaining ferocious speed and performance, to always keep you at the top of your game.
PCIe 4.0 speed maximized
Huge speed boost. 40% and 55% faster random read/write speeds than 980 PRO - up to 1,400K/1,550K IOPS, while sequential read/write speeds up to 7,450/6,900 MB/s reach near max performance of PCIe® 4.0. Fly high in gaming, video and 3D editing, data analysis, and more.
Breakthrough power efficiency
More power-efficient performance. Higher performance usually consumes more power. 990 PRO uses less power with up to 50% improved performance per Watt over 980 PRO. This low-power design makes max PCIe® 4.0 performance possible with optimal power efficiency.
Smart thermal solution
Speed beyond the heat. The nickel-coated controller and cutting-edge thermal control algorithm manage heat for unwavering performance. The heat spreader label controls NAND chip heat, while Dynamic Thermal Guard keeps temperatures optimal.
The champion maker
The best gameplay experience. A more than 55% improvement in random performance enables faster loads for ultimate gaming realism on PS5 and DirectStorage PC games.
