*TBW : Terabytes written* Warrantied TBW for 980: 150 TBW for 250GB model, 300 TBW for 500GB model, 600 TBW for 1TB model.* 5 years or TBW, whichever comes first. For more information on the warranty, please find the enclosed warranty statement in the package.
Temperature Control
Upgrade to breathtaking NVMe™ speed
It's time to maximise your PC's potential with the 980. Whether you need a boost for gaming or a seamless workflow for heavy graphics, the 980 is the smart choice for outstanding SSD performance and it's all backed by an NVMe™ interface and PCIe 3.0 technology.

Packed with speed
Get right to it. The 980 harnesses nearly all the speed advantages of PCIe 3.0 through HMB technology and dramatic NVMe efficiency. The DRAM-less design delivers exceptional value, achieving breakneck sequential read/write speeds up to 3,500/3,000 MB/s*, over 6.2x the speed of SATA SSDs.

.
* Performance may vary depending on the SSD’s firmware version, system and hardware configuration. Performance measurements are based on IOmeter 1.1.0. The write performances were measured with Intelligent TurboWrite technology activated. Intelligent TurboWrite operates only within a specific data transfer size. For detailed information, please contact your local service center* Test system configuration: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz,DDR4 2133MHz 8GBx2 OS-Windows 10 Pro 64bit Asrock Z-170 Extreme7+* Results are based on a comparison with Samsung SATA SSDs.* HMB (Host Memory Buffer) technology enables the SSD to use the DRAM of the host system for read/write caching and buffering.

Reliable thermal control
High-performance SSDs usually require high-performance thermal control. To ensure stable performance, the 980 uses nickel coating to help manage the controller's heat level and a heat spreader label to deliver effective thermal control of the NAND chip.

Smart thermal solution
Embedded with Samsung's cutting-edge thermal control algorithm, the 980 manages heat on its own to deliver durable and reliable performance. To minimise performance fluctuations in the long haul, Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard technology maintains the 980's temperature at optimal levels.

Samsung Magician software
Unlock the full power of the 980 with Samsung Magician's intuitive yet advanced optimisation tools. Monitor drive health, optimise performance, protect valuable data, and receive important updates with Magician to ensure you're always getting the best performance out of your SSD.

    Not PS5 compatible if anyone was wondering.
    You need Gen 4.0 not 3.0. (edited)

    Ugh I thought BF or CB would bring some good deals on drives for the PS5 but I can't seem to find any.

    No dram cache but I have one of these and its really decent.

    Same, unless you write massive quantities of data at once or conduct benchmarks this is very decent and fast storage. For normal users and gamers this is more than fast enough.

    Will adding a second one of these cause my laptop to heat even more?
    Avatar
    Most of the heat in a laptop comes from the CPU and GPU. Adding an SSD will increase the heat the system produces but only by a tiny amount. These are quite power efficient SSDs.

    I’m wondering whether I should have waited for this deal as I picked up the WD SN570 1tb drive from eBay for £56ish so maybe I’ve lost out on a better drive and retailer for warranty!? Thanks in advance.

    The two drives you mention are very similar, not worth changing, both will offer excellent performance for the average user. About warranty handling between retailers to that point I cannot speak.

    Don't know who posted the code but credit must not be taken on a loan.

    The significantly higher read and write speeds are because the SN850X is a newer PCI 4.0 drive and not PCI 3.0. It's also 40%+ more expensive, unless you bought it for £13 last week when Amazon mispriced it for a short while.

    The fair comparison with a Samsung product would be the 980 Pro, which is also PCI 4.0 has almost identical performance and pricing.

    According to Sony the PS5 needs a PCI 4.0 speed drive to function properly so this Samsung 830 will probably not work well / at all. Also a heatsink.

    Decent drive for everyday use, but very slow for cloning.
    Was taking over 90 minutes for about 250gb of data to a SSD.
    Today I discovered Primocache.
    Clone time today....54 minutes!

    Is the Pro worth the extra for a gaming pc?
    Avatar
    Not really as when you game you are mostly reading, not writing. I did personal tests on game load times, I have a 7000 mb/s nvme and a 550 mb/s SSD. Nvme load times are a meager 10-20% faster, this has been demonstrated many times by various sources. Directstorage hopes to change this but requires compatible hardware, OS and game support.
